    Sounds like the soundcard drivers may have to be reinstalled or updated.

    Or DirectX may have to be updated to the latest version.

    Try this: Open WMP, go to Tools, Options, Devices and wait till the window populates. Then highlight Speakers and click the Properties button.

    Where it says, "Audio Device to Use", try changing to "Default Direct Sound Device". If that is already chosen, choose your soundcard from the dropdown list.
