I left this post on another thread with the same question:
Hi, I have a gateway laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium that I bought for college a few months ago. I literaly hadn't used the laptop for media, and when I needed to, I couldn't find Windows Media Player at all.
I tried downloading it, which is frustrating because I can't locate a Normal Windows 7 Home Premium Windows Media Player download on Microsoft's site, and nothing installs. I get messages that say my computer does not need updates. The WMP doesn't seem to show up in Windows Explorer/seacrh, as if it doesn't exist. Also it isn't listed in add/remove programs. I tried msconfig normal startup, and that did not work; I went to Programs and Features in control panel to "Turn Windows features on or off", and it looks as though there isnt' a single feature to turn on or off; it's just a blank space. I had an empty folder called Windows Media Player, and I deleted it when I tried to download from Microsoft's site. Please help me? Thanks.

Do you have the Windows Home Premium N Edition?
If yes, install this Update:
Is it able to find and repair broken files (create the txt file shown under  and look if all files are restored)? Do you now see the media Player in Control panel->Turn Features on or off"  ?
