    Hello, this is a really strange problem.
    For some reason, I can't play any music at all on my computer.
    I can't listen to streaming music, and I can't listen to my mp3 collection.

    As I have said, I am running the newest version of Fedora on my dell e1401 Laptop.
    I have, so far, tried Rythmbox and Totem Movie Player, and xmms, which says "codec has been removed by Red Hat."

    Someone, please help?

    do you get any sounds at all? Can you play files of other formats e.g. ogg

    Most likely you'll need to install propriety codecs. You can do this through the non-free repositories for Fedora, or by following the instructions here.

    If you're not getting any sounds at all, try switching from Pulse Audio (is this the default for Fedora now?), to ALSA or OSS
