    Maybe you have it on mute.

    What soundcard do you have? I have SB Live 5.1 and in the Control Panel it defaults to muting the speakers if you have the headphones in the phone jack. Go to the mixer panel and uncheck "mute speakers" when headphones are used. As well, check the mixer channel to ensure the wave/mp3 is not muted. Adjust (crank up) the output level as well for master and wave.

    Turn the volume up, or do as was suggested above....turn off mute!

    got it figured out.

    thanks for the help guys.

    edit: crap, i actually dont.

    ok im not a real computer kinda guy so this is a description of what i did:
    i went to the little speakershaped deal thats on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, went to file properties and unmuted everything. Still no sound when using windows media. heres whats also interesting. WHen i use i tunes, the sound is really messed up, and when i use winamp the sound is fine

    i think my computer has the hiv

    and yes, the little mute button on windows media player is unmuted

    Try disableing your rea-time virus scanning. If you have a shit system like mine (UNTIL TOMMOROW) I've found that the sound is the first to go in Win Media Player. It sucks a lot of juice relatively speaking, and if you have a weak system it can't handle it.


    P.S Lok for my review of my new new Athlon 64 3500+ system over the next couple of days, I'm assembling it tomorrow!
