Having problems with your Computer Speakers ?

I get error message, "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your computer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly." when I try to play a Windows Media file or any sound through my Dell computer that I have my Durabrand HT-3917 home theater system hooked up to. Any ideas on how to make it work?


Answers :

Download quusoft driver smart from here and run it to make sure you have the right drivers installed (it's only a 15 day trial but you only need to run it once). If that doesn't sort it your sound card may be dead and need replacing.
