    I first discovered this problem on my new laptop when trying to play a cd in media player, it would not play, and a message popped up saying, "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 computer, it may be in use by another program or it may not be functioning properly" so i went to check this out in the control panel, with the audio devices section, and this told me that no sound device is connected. I get the feeling the laptop's speakers are not installed properly:confused:

    any ideas would be much appreciated:D

    Its not the speakers, its the sound card that has the problem.

    Since you have a laptop you should be able to go to the manufacturer's website and download the new drivers and then install them.

    If that doesn't work then please tell us what laptop you have and what version of Windows you are running.
