After installing a new sound driver
from Dell yesterday, I can't play any sort of sounds in media players. System sounds are still working fine, as well as youtube etc. However, windows media player, VLC, quicktime and spotify cannot play sound files.
Web help button sends me here: Windows Media Player error C00D11B1
(None of it fixed the issue.)
Spotify says something about a missing audio driver.
Anyway, so I tried rebooting, rolling back the driver, installing an HD audio driver from realtek themselves. None of these things work.
When a system sound plays, the bar next to "speakers" goes up, but when playing music nothing shows.
I've also tried fiddling with the device settings in media player, to no avail.
Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!
