a lil more info
by louk216 / January 30, 2007 4:26 AM PST

if you are only having problems playing audio through webpages, then the webpages you may be visiting may be require a different plug-in (real player, quicktime, etc).

there is no way that your headphones could be the reason you are only able to play wmp files, what program are u using to play your other files. what other file formats are you trying to play mp3? mp4? ogg?

and how/when did the problem start occuring, any software/hardware changes that you can recall that may have instigated this issue.

Re: Sounds on web pages problem

Brokenhearted_Jen, Are your System sounds working (Startup, shutdown, etc.)? You can test them in the Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices>Sounds tab.

If you have a creative sound card

There's a funny button on the driver that says to play only digital files. A couple times that button was checked and it turned most of my sound off. If you ask me, I don't what isn't digital on a computer.

But be sure to make sure that button isn't checked.

In reply to: nt

A driver is a little piece of software that is necessary for an operating system (such as Windows XP) to communicate with a hardware component (such as a sound card or audio circuitry built into the motherboard).

Windows XP includes some common drivers, but you must install all the others. If you don't have the driver disc, you can download the proper drivers from the computer maker's website. What is your computer make & model (example: Dell Dimension 4400)?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
