I have a couple Lenovo M98p desktops that when you click to open the .wav voice mail attachments in the inbox , Windows Media Player opens and plays, but no sound can be heard, speakers, desktop built in speaker, headset. I have checked that all other sounds do play fine, checked the volume control and mixer to verify the sound level and not muted, I have reinstalled the audio driver from the Lenovo Website and no luck. Win 7, SP1 64 bit, Office 2010, all updates installed.

    Accepted Solution

    Turned out to be that the computers did not have external speakers (using built-in PC speaker) andthe player was set to play via 5.1 surround.  Changed to stereo and voice mail attachments started playing.
