    Windows Media Player not playing music

    I am trying to play some MP3 files and even the included "Sample Music" and
    they will not play, it does not freeze or stall it just does not play..

    Media Center does play them however.. But I would much rather use Media
    Player..

    Exact same problem here. I'll add more info. though. On my system after I
    attempt to play a song in WMP, I get the same issue, but afterwards all
    window sounds refuse to work until log off or reboot. I'm running SoundMAX
    integrated audio on an Intel motherboard.

    Hey there..

    Do you have the latest driver for you sound card, cuz I used to have the
    same problem, but after installing a new driver the problem was gone..
