For some reason my Windows Media player won't open at all. Whenever I click to open it all that happens is my computer makes a "ding" noise....and thats it. I also can't open any files that use Windows Media Player. If I do, the same thing happens.

What can I do to get it working again?

How about uninstalling it then reinstalling it?
Do you have another media player trying to be the default player? (causing a conflict)

I'm not sure how to check and see if there's another player trying to be default. But still, how would that stop the program from even opening up. I mean...I can't even get the actual program to run at all!

right. well try the uninstall, then reinstall it. THEN make it your default.
Go to Tools>Options>file types. Check what you'd like it to "control".
Could be corrupt, perhaps.
As far as another progie trying to take control (be default) I'm referring to something like: RealOne or RealPlayer (what ever they are calling it these days)
