    If useing Windows media player 9 series, click on tools, then options, then the devices tab, double click on speakers, make sure it's set to the right device for playback.

    Check in the Control Panel, under "Sounds and Mutimedia" Audio tab, make sure the preferred playback device is right for your soundcard. And stop shouting. ;)

    Also, try updating directX
