    a friend of mine has a little problem, whenever she starts up windows media player it says "no sound device found" please help, dont even know where to start? thank yas!!!

    Edit: (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 ocomputer, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functioning properly.) Is what exactly it says

    Check the Device Manager (assuming Windows XP, right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager) for any yellow ! next to anything, usually under Multimedia or Sound, Video and Game Controllers.

    check for any updated drivers for the sound card. If its onboard you will need to go to the manufacturer of the motherboard.
