My Question or Issue

 Whenever I play any song on the Spotify desktop program it does not load or play. I also cannot load any playlists that I've created or public ones. I've attached some screenshots of what happens when I try to play a song or load a playlist. 

 

To resolve my issue I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times as well as trying to login to a different account. 

 

I've also tried turning off hardware acceleration.
