    Even though I can perfectly hear the start up sound and beep sound on my PC running on Windows XP, I am not able to hear the music played in Windows Media Player on it. How can I resolve this issue?

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    To resolve this issue, you should first open the ‘Control Panel’ window by clicking on ‘Control Panel’ option under ‘Start’ button. You should then click on ‘Switch into Category’ option in case it is in ‘Classic View’. After that, you should click on ‘Sound, Speeches and Audio Devices’ option and then on ‘Sound and Audio Devices’ option. Then, you should click on the ‘Sounds’ tab in ‘Sound and Audio Devices’ dialog box. You should make the name of your sound card is displayed under ‘Sound playback’ option and click on the ‘Volume’ button near to it. You can then find ‘Volume Control’ option on the window appears on your screen. You should then confirm whether the check box near to ‘Mute all’ is cleared. After that, you should move up the slider under the ‘Volume’ option. Finally, you should check whether you can hear music from Windows Media Player.

    Hello . .

    If You Not Able To Hear Sound From Windows Media Player Only . .

    Then

    There Is A Problem With The Player Itself . .!!

    Please Check Whether Your Windows Is Genuine Or Not . .

    If It's Not ; then cancel the automatic updates . .

    Else

    Try Re-Installing Windows Media Player

    Even if that doesn't work out better you transform into other players like VLC , Media Monkey etc . .

    Hello,

    If you are not able to hear music in the media player.

    Than first of all make sure that media player is not on MUTE.

    If it is not on mute and you still cant hear any sounds than i suggest.

    You should install the sounds drivers on your system again.

    Make sure that you restart your computer after the drivers installations.

    -Regards

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    It may be hardware or software problem check your window media player working good, To check when you open media player if it will open in proper manner without being hanging or any other message then your media player is being working right.

    But If your Window Media Player is corrupt Uninstall it or repair it with new media player.
    And moreover check your hardware if the problem is not solved,
    Check the wiring connection and check your sound setting in the system
    Go to The Start menu -> Control Panel-> Hardware Devices ->sounds And check is it working correctly
    If it is not click on Troubleshoot.
    And your problem will be solved.
    Good Luck....

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    Windows media player is automatically installed in your computer when you install a Windows OS in your computer .
    As , you are not able to hear the sound of video or audio in your Windows Media Player maybe it been set as mute .
    Try to uncheck that button by clicking the button next to the " play/ pause " button .

    If this doesn't work then surely there must have been some error occurred when windows was installing itself .
    I advice that download a new and stable version " Windows Media Player 11 " .


    You can download the software from :
    http://www.filehippo.com

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    I think your problem is software related .
    Just check window update and scan your PC.
    Then reinstall WMP.
    If it won't solve your problem .
    Then reinstall you window or update it.
    It will solve your problem.

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    Hello

    First i would say that try playing songs in other players such as km player or vlc or gom player. If it works then the windows media player is not working.

    Second check if you are using speakers and pc is the cord connected properly or not. Means is it attached to the right port

    Third check your sound bar is it mute or the volume level is low, if it is low make it high

    If still it doesnt work check if you have installed the volume driver or not.

    Thanks

    Re: Not able to hear music from Windows Media Player

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    Firstly check the the version of the 'Windows Media Player' you have installed is
    genuine or not. You can check it by making a right click on it and clicking on
    'properties'.

    If there is no problem in the version you are using then you can change the sound
    in your Windows Media Player or you can change the settings there in the Media Player.

    Try to uninstall the present software from your computer and re-install the same
    software so that you can able to fix your problem.

    There is no use of change the settings in the Control Panel. As you are able to
    hear the startup music.

    I hope it will help you to fix your problem.

    Have a nice day...............
