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.

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

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.
