Re: Mystery... Sound issue - not a plug missing....
Are you sure it's not a Windows Media Player issue? Have you tried any other player, eg iTunes (Yes, I know you uninstalled iTunes.). Grab some freeware off the net and see if any of them will play your media files. Or uninstall Media Player and reinstall it.
And is it always the same file that won't play? Is it all sound file types? Can you play a music CD (not a ripped version of a CD)?
You might uninstall the audio driver in Device Manager, reboot, and reinstall a fresh download of the latest compatible audio driver. Don't install the new one 'on top' of the old one.
