    All of a sudden, my computer no longer played my music or videos.

    I can open up Itunes, Windows Media Player, Ruckus, etc. but when I try to play a video or song it will not play. No error messages come up when I play it on any of the programs; the files open but they wont start playing. And I dont think anything is wrong with my sound card because I can still hear .wav sounds from starting the computer and everything.

    I checked my sound card by going to the Device Manager and it says the driver is up to date and everything.

    What's going on?

    Since you can hear the computer sounds, it's obviously not a sound card problem.

    What formats of audio/video sounds are you playing? Since you can hear a .wav sound from the computer, try opening a wav file and see if it works

    What's your default program for starting audio/video?
    If you double click an audio file, does the (seek) bar move and you don't hear sounds? or does it not move at all?
