Preferred Solution: Spotify won't play music because of a problem with my sound?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Spotify won't play music because of a problem with my sound?

Can you take a screen shot of the actual error message and post it? You might just have to re-install the sound card driver, but who knows you haven't given enough info yet to give you a good answer.

My computer was working completely fine until last night. I was playing counterstrike and all of the sudden i see my fps drop from 120 to 25 so i restart my computer thinking this was the problem. When i reboot all things go to hell. My skype is always reading "connecting" spotify won't play music its just frozen. Everytime i try to watch youtube videos or twitch streams it just crashes shockwave.. I can't open steam or the league of legends client. I have 0 ideas of what went wrong and i don't know how to look this up on google for help as it is so specific. I am very close to a full restore but i thought looking here first would be better before just fully committing.

Hi, I brought a Creative Soundblaster soundcard for 5.1 channels, and I've got 5.1 creative speakers, I test the speakers and they're right but when I try to listen music (mp3,wma,etc) center and side speakers work except rear speakers. I think this is because mp3 or any music file are using only 2 channels(stereo) right???
Cause only movies with 5.1 sound work with all the speakers

Is there a way to listen music on 6 speakers??? or are there codecs o special players to do that?

A:How to play music 5.1 surround sound (6ch)

I recently installed Norton Security Suite after removing AVG Free. Could this have caused the problem?

Similar to radiohazard's problem my speakers can play sound but cannot play music (Shoutcast radio/pandora/YouTube videos ect.) My speakers are connected to a sound card called SB X-Fi Go! Pro and it got the job done up until this point. I tested what is going on, in fact it was playing country music on windows media player a minute ago now it doesn't want to play any internet radios. My desktop is a Compaq with windows xp.

Also I am new to this site and hope to have my tech problems resolved here.

A:Sound plays but won't play music.

In the lower right corner, on the task bar by the clock, there should be a little icon that looks like a speaker. Single-clicking on it will reveal a master volume fader. Double-clicking on it should bring up an advanced mixer with several faders for different audio types/sources, such as Line-In, Wave, and others. I haven't used XP for a while but if memory serves, there is a menu in the top left corner of the mixer where you can click File>Properties. Inside properties you'll be given a list of all possible output sources, some of which may not be checked. Add a check mark to all items that are empty, click OK. The mixer should expand to show more sources. Make sure nothing is muted and that the volume levels are somewhere around 80%. If the audio you're trying to play back still doesn't work the next thing I would check is to see if you have the correct drivers installed for the sound card. Go to Creative Labs website, look up a support page for your card and find drivers that are compatible with Windows XP.

One other thing to check, and I'm not sure if this even exists in Windows XP, but in Windows 7 inside the Control Panel there is a Sound icon you can click on. This will show you a list of available sound output devices. It is possible that your computer has on-board (sound built into the motherboard) in addition to the X-Fi and when you're playing audio back it is sending it out the wrong sound card. So what you need to do is either disable the other sound card so it can't be used, set the X-Fi as the primary or something like that. One other way to check and see if this is the case is to go to Control Panel > System > Hardware Tab > Device Manager. Within Device Manager, expand the "Sound, Video and game controllers" section to see if there are multiple devices listed. If you see a "High Definition Audio Device" listed in addition to the X-Fi card, or something like that, right click on the high definition audio device and then click Disable. Then reboot.

Welcome Daspawnx!

I'm not quite sure what you want to do. Do you have an external device you are wanting to hook up and play through the speakers?

Try hooking the device up, and open Windows Media Player. In the left pane, see if you can find your device.

Here files not under win only sound play 7 music do some players some with is a tough one for the audio gurus out there I have been recording lectures on my phone for years using a program called Easy Voice Recorder It records in wav format I transfer the files to my PC and convert them to smaller mp 's which I typically play with winamp I could of course also play the original wav files with my default player for those windows media player WMP This worked fine under winXP A few months ago I converted to win Now when I some sound files do not play with some music players only under win 7 play the some sound files do not play with some music players only under win 7 wav files in WMP the progress indicator moves along but there is no sound When I play the converted mp 's in winamp the graphical level indicators bounce up and down and progress indicator moves along but there is no sound Before you tell me to turn up the volume or turn on the speakers or to select the right output device note that when I play wav files from another source in WMP there is sound And when I play other mp 's in winamp there is sound as well on win Furthermore when I play the recorded wav files or mp 's with VLC they do play and produce sound under Win When I play the mp 's with another editing program called mp direct cut they also play fine and produce sound under win Furthermore some sound files do not play with some music players only under win 7 when I play the same wav and mp files on another older machine still running XP they still play and produce sound there as well So the problem is very specific - that recordings made with this software Easy Voice Recorder played with these players WMP winamp on this system win appear as if they are playing but there is no sound The recording program is set to record at KHz with -bit PCM I tried reducing that to bit but it made no difference Also the setting quot use audio MIME types quot is selected Unselecting it also has no effect What could this be Thank you in advance

A:some sound files do not play with some music players only under win 7

16 bit, 16Khz is not a valid Windows format from what I see. 16 bit 44.1Khz is the lowest wav format (this is "CD" quality). I looked at my RealTek and that was the lowest I could go.

Possibly this is the problem?

Alright, so I was doing fine, then I originally used too much of my RAM at one time. Caused a BSOD, knew how to fix that (by not running so many programs, haha). So, when it re-booted. I went back to doing what I was doing, however, I wasn't playing music. Now, it bluescreens the INSTANT I play music on Spotify while I'm Livestreaming, yet it does not do it when Spotify is idling in the background. The error is as follows:

I suspect it's something to do with my sound settings on one of the two apps conflicting or something. Some help would be quite useful. This computer is perfectly healthy otherwise!
-Edit- The previous error you see in the screencap is the other BSOD that I described to you. The minor one that I knew how to deal with.
-Edit 2- Forgot to attach this.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

-(edit) also I just noticed that windows sounds work, But game sounds do not. I also just updated the realtek drivers and software that came with the mobo. It's an ECS 570 slit-a with a p2cd e6400 with 2gbPC 6400 and an 8800GTS 256. I can answer any more questions about the pc.


A:Music will not play.

(solved) I uninstalled the vista drivers for my audio card and reinstalled the windows xp drivers and that solved all my problems.

Thanks anyone who was intending to help me.

Can't play music CD.

Three or four years ago I burned two CDs with music from my computer. Now, none of my computers recognize either of the CDs using Windows media player.

I'd like to be able to pull the music from them, because I no longer have it anywhere.

Any suggestions?

A:Can't play music CD.

What format are the files?
With the CD in the drive, rt-click, explore to see if you can look at the files.

Windows Media Player, iTunes, Winamp, and Real Player no longer will play music on my computer. I just get error messages when trying to play music in all players. Have you heard of anything like this happening before?

A:Cannot play music

First thing to try is a "system restore" to a date when the problem did not exist >> just run or search for "system restore"

Problems not fixed in that manner tend to be hardware related.

In Vista you can also do a system health diagnostic by going to the Control Panel > Performance Information and tools > Advanced.

Look for "failed" issues especially in the hardware diagnostic.

Check the event viewer for errors as well.

Report exactly any that relate to your sound issue.
Ensure you are trying to play "music" with different extensions -- such as mp3 or wav or audio CDs

Also run dxdiag and see if it reports any errors.

I have a problem with my WMP. When I'm trying to open any music file, the media don't to open the file! It's wrting me that messege: "seever execution failed".
So what do I need to to that my WMP will open a music file?
Thank you.

A:WMP Don't want to play music

Have you tried opening the file via different ways.

What happens when you open it by going File -> Open in WMP?

What happens when you right click on the file in Explorer and select Play in Windows Media Player

Can you play the file with another media player? (if you have another one?)

I am trying to import music into my PowerPoint presentation, and some of it play and some of it doesn't. The music directly from a CD works fine, but most that I have downloaded from the web does not. Whether it is MP3 or WAV file doesn't make a difference. I have tried to play the music by going to start, run, and mplay.exe, and all the music plays there just fine. What's the problem! I'm trying to get this done for graduation tomorrow morning.

None of those options worked either I had same problem with old dvd burner, someone on line suggested a new burner, that is why I got a new one. It also will not burn a disc because of same prob.

Got a new computer with Windows 8. I put a music CD in the D drive. Nothing happens. I click on DVD RW Drive (D), and it shows the tracks on the CD. I check Track 1, go up to Music Tools and click Play. A play button appears but it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

A:How to play music from CD

What type of audio CD do you have? A commercial audio CD or one that someone burned?

If its not a commercial audio CD, try one of those if you have one.

Does other audio play OK?

As this is a new PC, if it has never worked, best to contact the PC vendor (or where you bought it) for support. If there is a hardware problem only the vendor can take care of it under warranty.

Also, please fill in the "My System Specs" so we know what hardware we are dealing with.

A:cd rom won't play music

Some of the latest music cds have a copy protection that prevent them being used in computer cd players but work in stand alone players.

Try some other music discs and if they play then that's your answer.

I have around 400 music files stored in my hard disc. Suddenly I can't play these files either in Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media Centre. However the same files can be played in Itunes. When I try to play these songs in WMP or Windows Media Centre, only a slow drum beat sound is coming-that's all- no music, no lyrics. Audio CDs are playing well. What has gone wrong and how these can be played again? My computer spec is:

Windows Vista Home premium 32 bit


A:Can't play music

Go to:

Control Panel
Default Programs
Set Associations

Scroll down to the music file name extension i.e. mp3 or whatever ................
Left click on it and then in the top right hand corner click the "change program "button.

Browse and choose Windows Media Player as the default program.

You can also try right clicking on the music file in your folder and choosing "open with" and there again choose WMP and see what happens.

Using your mouse you can also "block" each and every music file in your saved folder, right click on them and again select the "open with" shell command - and WMP again.

There is often a little box at the bottem of this menu that says something like "make this the default program" - if so check this box!

Very recently I've been having problems playing music on my laptop. I'm running Vista and whenever I restart everything is fine. Music plays as normal. But after a while sound files just won't play. WMP gives me an error and every other media player I've tried says it's playing the music but I don't actually hear anything. It's highly frustrating, because all the while other sounds - system sounds, youtube etc. - are fine. It's just a problem with music files, it seems. And I'm baffled as to what it could be.

Anyone with any ideas?

My friend has a laptop with Vista and a DVD-CD drive. He can play a DVD disc, a data disc, a .wav disc and an .mp3 disc but not a CD bought from a music store. He assumes the drive is OK because the problem is only with the music discs he buys.
He's tried several suggestions, one from this forum, to remove two filters from the registry, but there was only one filter there which he removed.
Can anyone help or must he replace the disc drive?

You can't format a CD-R disk. And formatting means erasing, so that certainly wouldn't help.

What does "won't pull up" mean? Can you browse the contents of the disk? What kind of files are listed?

So i went on youtube to see how i could change the format and i saw a few videos that claimed to have work with a video transcoder (Handbrake) and now i cant watch any videos or play any music on my notebook. i can only see videos from online for example youtube. please help!!

Hi, Please write down the format your camcoder uses as well,Nevertheless, if all you want to do is view the camcoder files on your notebook and the format isn't supported, go for a 3rd party app known as VLC media player as it has all the codecs pre-installed.install it and start going through your videos.Good luck & please reply if it didn't work!

On MSN, when I select a music video to play, the advertising video plays fine, then it skips the music video, and goes on to the next ad.

On Yahoo, I get a message that I might have a pop-up blocker getting in the way. I disabled Internet Explorer's popup blocker and the Google toolbar's popup blocker also. I can't find another popup blocker on my machine. How can I find out if there is another one?

What else could be causing this?

I have a Samsung Blu-Ray player plugged into a USB port on my desktop PC running Windows 7. It plays through the VLC media player. It will play my commercial music CDs but only one track at a time, then it stops. How can I get it to play an entire multi-track CD without stopping? Thanks.

I can't play DRM protected music after a hardware change on my computer, WinXPsp2/WMP9. I tried deleting the contents of my DRM folder and individualizing WMP, but it still doesn't work, not even with a song I just got today from

Any ideas? TIA

A:Can't play purchased music

I tried upgrading to WMP11, no help. Installed WinAmp, same result.

It seems that the bottleneck is that when the Player tries to connect to's secure site for the license, Internet Explorer can't display the page and gives a "page not found" error. I've tried all of the settings changes in IE, even added as a trusted site, disabled my firewall, no change.

I have a Xvid file that opens in Windows Media Player and I want it to open as a video file.

Any ideas to change media type to video and not audio

A:Video Play As Music

Hello Ljohn,

Welcome to Forum. You didn't say whether you have the codec pack or not. You need to install codecs in order to play the Xvid files. The Vista Codec pack you can download from, or the KLite Codec from K-Lite Codec Pack - Download

Hope it will help. Cheers...

My CD Rom will play music but not data. If I put in a data file (such as the windows 2000 cd, which I need to use) I get the little cd icon for a while by the cursor, but the cd is not found when I try to access the files on it. I have a CYBERDRV CW078D in a Compaq Presario computer. I have supposedly updated the driver in Device Manager, but nothing changed. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I just moved about 25 music items from My Music folder on my old computer and put them on the new one. Only about 5 will play on the new computer, the remainder show LOADING in the upper left corner of the screen and never come back. The 5 or so that do play via Windows Media Player are fine. I see no real pattern between what works and what does not work.

A:Solved: Why won't my music play?

Since most of the music was copied from CDs, I needed a license from Microsoft to play them. One click to get a license and all the music now plays. This did not happen on my old computer when using Media Player.

Okay, let me explain the entire situation for you guys:

I downloaded a program that would allow me to download streaming files. The problem is, that after downloading a few of them, it seems as if I'm unable to play them - I can't seem to understand why, though. I tried using every program I have: Winamp, Real Player, Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player (Which usually plays everything), to no avail.

Here's the file I get when I click on the Winamp screen:

Network received: 10424403 bytes
Server: Mp3 ToolBox/v1.0 beta 5
Content-Type: audio/mpeg

So here are my questions:

1.) Any idea why they won't play?

2.) Is there ANYTHING out there that would allow me to play this file?

Would really appreciate some help with this.

Thanks in advance.

That error message is just saying your computer doesnt know what app to open the music with. You need to go into default program control panel and associate the file typw with the app (player) you want to use.

Let us know if you need help

Hey Guys-

When I try to play music CD's on my computer it gives me a message that it's switching to analog mode and that it's unable to read in digital mode. I've never heard of this before. I noticed something once in the manual for a new motherboard I got about an ADC/DAC (Analog to Digital Converter/Digital to Analog Converter). Is this something that I may need to solve this problem or is it something entirely different? I've checked my sound card and its fine. It plays the sample songs that came with Windows Media player.

Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated!!

A:Unable to play music CD's in CD-ROM

Yes, there is a setting I know where you put a check into a box, probably found in Properites of the CDROM, found from Device Manager. Let me look....nope, in Control Panel, click open the Multimedia folder icon, then CD Music, down at the bottom,
theres the little rascal......however, you may need the right software or use this. Perhaps someone can help further-
