    Click play on a audio file, doesn't play

    This is a vague post as I'm trying to help someone fix their laptop over a remote connection,

    Basically they have Vista and all drivers look OK, but when they load a audio file (Through WMP, iTunes etc, its not app specific) and click play the file will not start playing!

    Any ideas?

    Sorry for being vague but I last looked a few nights ago.

    Does it appear to play or give an error?
    Volume turned up + unmuted?
    Speakers confirmed as OK + plugged into the right place?

    try a known working audio file - may just be that one audio file is corrupt ?

    It opens, but the slider seems to remain static.

    Volume turned up and unmuted, it's a laptop. Think I may have suggested trying headphones to no avail too.

    If the bar remains static headphones won't help you, suggests a driver is missing or the mixer isn't configured properly.

    Mind you, I've seen this also on a box running TVersity with some codecs to stream media to an xbox/ps3 but it trashed MP3 for everything else!
