Hello.  I have a problem with my audio setup.  When I try to play any type of audio using WMP I get the C00D11BA: Cannot play the file error.  I also cannot playback system sounds.  Under Sounds and Audio Device Properties, it shows No Audio Devices as my default and the only option from the dropdown menu is Modem #0 Line Playback.  From Belarc Advisor, my multimedia section has:

C-Media AC97 Audio Device
MPU-401 Compatible MIDI Device
Standard Game Port
Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device

I've updated the drivers for the C-Media AC97 audio device and reinstalled WMP, but nothing has changed.  The most recent changes that I made was cleaning up some spyware.  You can see what happened here: http://mytechsupport.ca/support/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=42&topic=9065

Since then, I've encountered this problem.  I'm running XP Home.  Please let me know if you need any additional info.  Thanks for the help.

What make & model motherboard do you have? Have you tried reinstalling your motherboard chipset drivers and the audio drivers that came with the motherboard (on CD)? Is your audio enabled in the BIOS?

Here is my motherboard info.

Board: SiS-651
Bus Clock: 133 megahertz
BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG 02/26/2003

I haven't tried the other things that you mentioned yet.  I know how to install the drivers, but how do I know that the audio is enabled in the BIOS?  Thanks.

By rebooting the computer, going into the BIOS (check your motherboard or PC manual on that) and checking what the settings are for the onboard sound.

Everything looks good in the BIOS.  Another thing that I've found is that when I go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainment>Volume Control, I get this message:  There are no active mixer devices available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware.

Needless to say, it used to work before.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers from the original CD and nothing has changed so far.  Any other ideas?  Thanks.

No, there aren't any yellow exclamation marks.  Also, I checked for hardware changes and everything came back normal.  The soundcard is part of the L4S5MG/651+ Motherboard by ECS Elitegroup.  I updated all of the drivers from their site and still nothing.  The only good news is when I click on Volume Control I can hear a beep when the error message appears.  Unfortunately, under Sounds and Audio Device Properties, it still shows No Audio Devices .

The beep comes through the onboard PC speaker.

Prior to that actions taken in my last post, I wasn't even able to hear the beep that comes through the onboard PC speaker.  I'm hoping that means that some progress is being made.

Okay, is your onboard Audio in the BIOS set up correctly? Check page 36 of your motherboard manual (you can download it in PDF format here).

Also check if the Audio Access Interface (under Integrated Peripherals) is set to the correct setting. It should say embedded.

To enter the BIOS, press Del when you see the message "Press Del to enter Setup" on your screen when you boot up. If you never see this, boot up, press the Pause key immediately and wait for your screen to warm up & show the POST. Then press Enter to let it continue its POST until you do see the message.

Always save changes to the BIOS on exiting it, even if you haven't changed anything.

The onboard audio is set up correctly in the BIOS.  Under Audio Access Interface, the 2 options I have are EBD Bus and PCI Bus.  It is set to EBD.

Still having problems with my audio.  I bought a soundcard to see if I could go around the integrated audio from the motherboard, but then I got the blue screen of death and a BAD_POOL_CALLER error.  Any thoughts?  Thx.

The soundcard is a CMI 8738 PCI Sound Card 6 Channel made by Sabrent.
