My speakers and computer sound work fine but spotify makes no sound when I press play

Other programs such as Windows Media Player will play sound when I press play however Spotify won't and I was wondering what was wrong. My speaker and computer sound configuration settings haven't changed but it just stopped working!!!! Help Please.

Have you looked to see if you have "Enable Hardware Acceleration" checked in the Spotify preferences? Try unchecking this, applying the change and restarting Spotify and your computer.

I have the exact same problem, everything else just works fine, but when I try to play something in Spotify, it doesn't make any sound! And i disabled the 'enable hardware acceleration' which had no effect to me when i restarted.

Strange..

 

But what I did:

 

- removed Spotify

- Let Ccleaner clean up your computer

- Download Spotify

- Install Spotify

- Launch Spotify

- Make sure in Spotify the sound is not muted

- Right click on your speaker icon next to your time/date in the taskbar and click Open Volumemixer

- There says Spotify, and there I saw it was muted THERE. 

 

Just look better, that's the only thing I like to say now :P

Ive recent;ly changed to Windows 7 and can get no sound on Spotify - Ive tried everything spotify recommend, all the volume setting are on the accelerator is right the firewall is not blocking spotify - Ive uninstalled then reinstalled - interestingly any radio podcast has sound but not my music . Its so so frustrating can anyone help at all or do I have to juist give up?  Steph
