I am using Windows XP 32-bit. When I test the speakers in the audio control panel, everything works fine. But when I play some music, I can't hear any sound from my speakers.

What could be the problem and how can I fix this?

could you clarify a bit please? How do you play the music, do you not hear the music or other sounds while you play the music? – TheUser1024 Nov 3 '12 at 13:25
sure i have tried to open music with different players like Windows media player and vnc players usually but no audio sound at al :( but while checking the speaker i could hear the sound – GK27 Nov 6 '12 at 7:19

try playing a video on YouTube. If you get sound output from your speaker, then there is something wrong with the music file you are playing.
