I just installed Spotify onto my brand new lenovo laptop and copied my backup from my old laptop over. These problems started immediately after I copied my backup over so I think it has to do with that as I previously had spotify installed on my old laptop. I went and reinstalled spotify completely, running CCleaner after uninstallation, then reinstalling it and it still won't play any songs. Just skips every song and no matter what it is. I went and deleted spotifys storage folder and cache folder manually then restarted spotify, still didn't work. Unchecked all of the checkboxes in preferences including hardware acceleration and it still won't work.
Any help would be appreciated otherwise I'll have to cancel my premium subscription before it renews this month

Solved! Go to Solution.
Please try changing your default playback device to your computer's speakers (http://www.7tutorials.com/how-change-default-playback-recording-audio-device) restart Spotify and try it again.
Tell me if it worked, please. You can give me a kudo too if you want 😉
If solution above does not work for you try this solution first close spotify, find the control panel>admin tools>services>Windows Audio Endpoint Builder (near the bottom of the list) Restart the service, check spotify. This solution is primarily for people want play music through the audio jack and and any default speakers on like a laptop. Step by step picture instructions will be uploaded
That really helped i did exactly what you said because everything else was not working.
Then i opened up spotify again and it played music!
