    Very recently, my computer has been having problems with getting the sound to work on some of my players. To be more specific, my winamp will not play any songs and just sits at 0:00 even after I hit play, and then media player classic, VLC player, DivX, and even the windows media player will NOT play sound on any video file I open (avi, mkv, etc etc...). Strangely, when I restart my computer some of the sound comes back on and winamp works, but when I open up any video file within those media players some of the sounds just turn off and everything becomes silenced once again. Even the sound when you click on a folder is muted.

    Now, the one thing you'll ask me first is do I have all the codecs to play all these files? Yes, I have every single codec needed to play just about everything, so this also confuses me as to why it has started this glitch or whatever. Also, I had recently updated my VeohTV program as well and it will not play any sound either. I honestly have no idea what the **** is going on with my computer and I know my speakers are fine.

    I don't know what apps your using for your sound system but it may well be you've somehow switched a default player with something else. The system might not know which program to use. You have to run down what defaults and drivers your audio uses as default and make sure it's still the same. Go into Sound under Control Panel and check to see what's going on. Jazz
