Windows Media Player Error; Troubleshooting Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Question #1

    When I try to play music in windows Media Player I get the following message:

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device.  There might not be a sound device installed on your computer, it might be in use by another program, or it might not be functioning properly.

    The sound was working about a week ago, and I do have IDT High Definition Audio CODEC driver on my laptop. 

    Question @2

    When I run any Troubleshooting program I get the following error code:

    Pkg ID: AudioPlaybackDiagnostics  (This varies depending on what I'm troubleshooting)

    Path: Unknown (This varies)

    Error Code:  0x8E5E0247  (This error code is always the same)

    Source:  Engine
