Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop ?

Waves not playing yet mp3s do.

\015 I CAN play MP3s and CDs and hear the music on my myspace page when it loads. \015\012I can hear music on other people's myspace pages when it's imbedded into the page as an mp3; however I cannot hear the music on peoples Myspace Music Players. This started late yesterday afternoon and of course I presumed this to be a myspace problem and didn't give it much thought.\015\012When I turned on the computer today something visually went by fast (maybe a small gray java window) like it was installing something (maybe windows haha) but it may have said Windows Media Player. When it finally came up I opened Windows Media Player and tried to play an MP3 and it said I was missing a codec and provided a proper link. I clicked on the link and immediately got the codec and now the MP3s play.\015\012But still Myspace Music Players don't play. \015\012Here is the bad part that made me realize it wasn't a myspace problem. My midi files do not play nor do any of my webpages play the midi files on them. \015\012The only change I made was yesterday I deleted X-Vid codecs that I had downloaded months ago and did not use. I used add/remove programs and removed X-Vid. \015\012\015\012Anyway I did a full Nortons scan and was clean. Then I ran a full Ad Aware Scan, and ran CCleaner as well and nothing is very wrong with my system other than no sound with midis.\015\012I finally decided to do a full system restore to yesterday that failed as it said I had made no changes. Then I tried a system restore to last Sunday and it said there were no changes made and so no restore would be made. So it probably wasn't the X-Vid delete that caused the problem.\015\012In troubleshooting in Device Manager I tried to update ALL the audio drivers and it said I had the best (latest)version of all the drivers. I clicked on everything individually and then ran the troubleshooters which took forever.\015\012I have no yellow exclamation points and it says all things are working properly.\015\012except for one thing. when I click on Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device it says this device is working properly. When I click on properties and then again on the tab that says properties and then on the words Modem Wave Driver it says\015\012Status:Driver is enabled but not functioning properly. Yet previously (higher up) it said it was fine. (this is device 5.3.2600.2180)\015\012\015\012Also if I click on Control Panel, Sounds and audio devices,sounds tab.... and click on a sound.... it used to let you preview the sound but now the tab is gray.\015\012I don't know what to do next. If my sound card was unseated my mp3s wouldn't play. I have rebooted several times. \015\012I have tried reading Dell forums (I have a Dimension 5100) and I have read forums for Unimodem half-duplex audio device and forums for Sigma tel High definition audio codecs although that one says its working properly. Since it seems to only be Midis affected and it is called a Modem Wave Driver, could the dial up modem be unseated? could it be that simple? \015

Answers :

Nopes. What seems to be was a suspended application installation (probably you or somebody qho used your computer just before it happenned). You can try System Restore. It should roll back that kind of file extension change. Hope it helps, good luck.
\015\012Solution #2: You can do as well if the system restore does not work to reasign the software that is going to open that file extension (so far I know the change has been made to MP3, WAV, MIDI.). That you can do it by opening my computer, then go to "TOOLS", inside of it go to "FOLDER OPTIONS", then choose the tab "FILE TYPES". There, scroll down until you see the extension "MP3" and place your mouse arrow on it. Now below it you are going to see two choices that you can click on, click on "CHANGE" and choose your favorite program. Again, I hope it helps...

I have used Musicmatch Jukebox for years to download and burn mp3s to a CD. I have always used CD-R CDs. All of a sudden when I go to play the CDs, they aren't compatible with the same players I've always played them on. For instance, my Bose surround sound gives me the message of: format unsupported. It has always been my understanding that CD-R's played on anything, and up until now, they have. Is there a setting I can change to rectify this matter? Thanks in advance for your help.
