    Have you tried a different player..??
    If a different player does not work either, it may be related to sound drivers or system settings.

    Try this one. foobar2000

    Is there any way to re-install it..?? Ifso, maybe uninstall it first, then re-install.
    Alternatively, perhaps system restore to a point before it stopped working.

    Sorry if the ideas seem generic, as I've never used that music players.
