    Recently, when starting up my pc (which uses xp media center version 2005) I started getting this error message: "Volume Control: Unable to Load User Interface. Please reinstall application."

    The sound doesn't work when I play dvds, but work fine for everything else - music on youtube, etc.

    Is it the drivers that I need to reinstall?

    Thanks!

    What do you have for a sound card? Try typing sndvol32.exe in the run command and see if it runs the Volume Control applet. Or you can Uninstall the drivers, restart the computer and reinstall the drivers and see if that works. It sounds like a drivers issue.

    I have a Dell and looking at the purchase paperwork it looks like Integrated High Definition Audio for Inspirion item number 313-4233.

    When I go to start and then run and put that in the volume screen comes up. And like I said I can listen to things on my laptop no problem - it's only when I try to listen to a dvd that I can't hear anything.

    The audio for that device may be disabled. Go into the device manager(“Windows key + Pause Break”) and see if it’s enabled. See attachment for details.
