Windows Media Player 11 - no sound

Last response: in Windows XP

I've tried 3 versions of Windows media player to try playing CDs. None worked as there was no sound. Other programs which need sound work perfectly OK, eg I can play DVDs in InterVideo DVD. Does anyone know what I can do? I thought media player would automatically use my sound card but apparently that's not the case. Thanks for any help,

Did you check the Media Player settings to make sure nothing is muted?

I checked to make sure the louspeakers on my system weren't muted. And that the CD player line in setting was reasonable. I can't see anything to check IN media player as its toolbar has choice like Rip, Burn, Now playing, Sync but nowhere to configure anything else. But as I said as soon as I use other programs, hey presto everything works !!!
