My Computers back but no sound

Windows Media Player Error
Cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding.
It keeps showing this when I play a video or audio file. My speakers are plugged in but is there something else I have to do?

Sounds like sound and video cards are kinda screwed if it's not drivers but I doubt they are like that.

The sound card's inside your computer if you weren't looking in there. :p

You need drivers for what it is. I'm going off a limb but I bet it's a Sound Blaster. :p

EVEREST, my favorite tool, to the rescue! You could either do what Latios said, or save the trouble of opening up your case and download EVEREST.
http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en

After doing that, install it, run it, and then, on the left side of the screen, click Multimedia, then PCI / PnP Audio. See what kind of card it says. Go to the website that manufactured that card, and look for the drivers. If it's integrated, I think you just have to download the drivers for your motherboard.

I hope this helps. If not... don't know.

You owe me $50 for tech support. :D

Just kidding. My parents say that to me whenever I ask them for PC help.
Parents > Latios > Everyone? WORLD GONE CRAZY?! :p

Parents aren't meant to know anything about this stuff. :p At my house it goes:
Brother > Me > Dad, second oldest brother > Sister > Mum
