    When I tried playing any music today nothing happens and i get a message saying cannot play back the audio stream:no audio hardware is avaliable, or the hardware is not responding

    There is no volume icon in the system tray and when I go in sounds and multimedia I cannot click on anything grey (inactive)
    Was all working fine yesterday, playing cds, mp3s and windows sounds

    Also when I click on my cd drive's icon I get the message windows cannot launch mmjblaunch.exe. This program is needed for opening files of the type 'audioCD' location of mmjblaunch.exe and then a dialog box for me to type the location'

    I've searched for mmjblaunch.exe and it isn't on my harddrive

    The written phrase stands for "Music Match JukeBox.exe". The way to find a cure is to reinstall your sound drivers as it is the one that is in control of the MEdia And sound aspects of your systems Sound Files. It is one real common item in the problems of running any computer operated system that is running on the "Sound Blaster" Format. All you have to do is go into your "Control panel", click onto "System" go to "Device Manager" go down to the ADD (+) symbol for "Sound, Video and game controller", click onto it and then click "Remove" "Creative SB Live! Value". Once this has been removed, restart your system and it will find the New Hardware and Reinstall it back to the Default system settings on your computer. This will be loud to your ears when it first activates , so be aware of the loud noise that is going to begin after it restarts.

    You got rid of mUsic Match Jukebox - didn't ya! I did and this is how I fixed it: I use Windows Media Player. Goto START, PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, ENTERTAINMENT, Windows Media Player.
    Goto VIEW, OPTIONS, FORMATS tab, and make sure your Windows Media file, Windows Media Audio/Video file and Audio file are checked. Click Apply then play!
    Run WMP and go to 'Tools' - 'Options' - 'Formats' and check the 'CD Audio track' box and then click 'Apply'

    Hope this helps you.

    In windows media player all formats are selected. And in the device manager I don't have 'Creative SB Live! Value' I have crystal WDM audio codec and then the joysticks and pad. I thought this maybe the same thing with a different name but didn't want to remove it incase.

    I didn't have Music Match Jukebox but I bought a new mouse and it came as part of the software, I opened it up to have a look but didn't like it much so deleted it. Thinking back that's the last time the sound worked .

    If its any comfort to you I too received that message recently - and now things are working fine - it was a such a simple remedy that I can't remember what I did. When/if I do, I'll come back. Just making this post so you don't do anything too drastic as the fix is easy.

    Can you try this, start, run, then type scanreg /restore and press ok.....is there a date prior to the problem, but not too far back?
