    I had service pack 1a and then the auto update got me to install service pack 2 but after installing it when i go to media player it says Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

    but i no it worked fine before installing service pack 2 because i re-installed xp and all working fine and then service pack 2 gets installed agian then the same message appears when trying to use media player. When i go to control panel and sound it says some thing along the lines of there been no sound installed but i no for affect that it is installed but any way try ed uninstalling it and reinstalling it but still no go so someone please help

    Hiya and welcome

    Are you still having this problem? If so, go to Control Panel | System. Hardware tab | Device Manager.

    Under Sound, are there any !'s showing? If so, expand the + to give the name of your soundcard. Also, rightclick on the card, select Properties, then Driver tab. What's the version number?
