After upgrade to iTunes 11 "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration"

After upgrading to iTunes 11 I have lost all sound on my PC running Windows XP.  When I try to open iTunes I get the following message: "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."  I have also lost sound when I attempt to listen to audio from a Website while in a browser session.  I notice I have also lost the volume setting icon from the system tray in the lower right corner of the screen.
Please advise.

Something went wrong during the upgrade to iTunes 11.  I have lost audio on my desktop PC running Windows XP.  No sound in iTunes: "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."  No sound during browser sessions.  The volume control icon disappeared from the system tray in the lower right corner of the screen.
It seems that an audio driver(s) were damaged or deleted.  When I go into the Control Panel and check the reading for the audio hardware, the entry for the DVD/CD-ROM drive says:
"Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device."
Please advise.

    I have iTunes 10.7 on Windows 7 and I need this so I can update my library before the iPhone 5 arrives! Any ideas???
    Much Thanks!

    I had this same problem and my sixteen year old figured it out. Since the Windows PC running iTunes (which supports a housefull of AppleTVs) was running in a closet, he suspected it was due to having no speakers attached.
    Sure enough, when I went into control panel to look at my sound settings, I noticed something I had missed previously. There was a red mark on the device. I took his advice and plugged in some earphones to the speaker jack and, wallah, the red mark turned green and the iTunes warning never popped up again.

  • Error message after upgrade to iTunes 11: "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."  At this point my PC running XP loses all audio.

    Several attempts to upgrade to iTunes 11 have failed.  After an upgrade to 11 the error message reads: "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."  At this point--after the upgrade to iTunes 11--my PC running Windows XP loses audio playback for all functions--in iTunes, in the browser and the volume icon disappears from the System Tray.  Only by removing iTunes 11, and then using System Restore to turn back the OS settings can I return the PC to normal functioning.
    I did that.  I reinstalled iTunes 10.5.  Everything seemed fine, but when I try to plug in and copy a CD to my iPhone 4S an error message reads roughly: 'iPhone 4S requires iTunes 10.5 or higher to work.'
    What might be the problem with my audio configuration?
    Why doesn't my iPhone 4S work with iTunes 10.5?  It used to work with iTunes 10.5.
    Please advise.

  • ITunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration...?!!?!?!?!?!

    i get thins message when i open itunes...
    "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback man not operate properly."
    HOW DO I FIX IT??

    Sounds like several people still have this problem... including me.
    I upgraded to a new PC (still running XP , installed iTunes 8.0.2.20, reloaded my library...
    And I got the "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration" error.
    I've deinstalled and reinstalled Quicktime to no avail.
    iTunes seems to launch okay after the error.
    But when I select a song and click "play", the song and time-counter show up correctly, but the song does not play... the "play head" stays stuck at 0:00.
    I've imported new CDs, and the problem is the same with them.
    This sounds like an unsolved problem... where do we go from here?

  • When I go to open Itunes I get a message that says "Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly.

    When I go to open Itunes, I get a message saying "Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not work properly. I've tried closing and re-opening Itunes but it still comes up. I've also tried removing quicktime, repairing Itunes and restarting my computer after that. It still says the same thing. I've also tried reinstalling Itunes as well.

  • ITunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration, audio/video

    When i open iTunes i recieve a message saying "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration, audion/video playback may no operate properly." iTunes opens fine after i click ok on the message. However when i push play to hear a song nothing happens, the time for the song remains at zero's.

    This error can be caused by a bad installation of QuickTime. Remove iTunes and QuickTime, and reinstall iTunes (which will reinstall QuickTime). You can find the steps to remove and reinstall near the bottom of this article in the Apple knowledege base.

  • I just moved my itunes library from a win 7 computer to a win 8.1 computer. Getting an error message "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly. Can't play CDs or get audio file from web!

    Help! I just moved my itunes library from a Win 7 computer to a new Win 8.1 computer following the instructions on the itunes website. Everything is good except I'm getting an error message on the Win 8 computer if I try to play a CD or get an audio file off of the internet. I get an error message that says "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly. I don't know where to look for or fix the audio configuration on the win 8 computer. As far as I can tell the iTunes configuration looks the same as on the other computers in the house. At this point I don't dare plug my ipod touch into the Win 8 computer for fear it will get messed up.

    I have the same problem and I know that it is due to my PCI Audio driver not being compatible with WIndows 8.1.
    iTunes isn't the only program that can't direct sound to the built-in speakers anymore. The obvious solution would be to update the drivers, but unfortunately Dell does not provide an updated driver for my model, so I am stuck with that.
    However, saying that, only my laptop speakers are affected by this. I can use sound fine on applications where I can choose the output device and direct sound to the head phones, but for some reason iTunes does not let you choose the audio device manually.
    To listen to music I imported the iTunes Library in Windows Media Player and changed the audio output using the following instructions: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/c00d11ba
    However, I would also like to rent movie's from iTunes, 
    Would be great if iTunes would let you choose the output device, too, like most other applications using sound  from Skype to Windows Media Player,...

  • ITunes Cannot Run It Has Detected a Problem With Your Audio Configuration

    Well... I've just come back from christmas with my new green iPod nano (second gen), and I try to use iTunes. It has an "...unknown error (-200)." So I download the new iTunes. NOW it says "iTunes Cannot Because Run It Has Detected a Problem With Your Audio Configuration." I've tryed the support but it doesn't have any WORKING solution. If SOMEONE could PLEASE tell me whats going on, I'd be REALLY greatful.
    I've been trying to figure this out for almost 3 days now and I'm hanging by a string here.

    It is your QuickTime application, actually. What you want to do is go into your Control Panel, and then Add/Remove Programs. Find QuickTime, click on it, and click on Remove, and then follow through the prompts to uninstall QuickTime.
    Then, go here to reinstall it:
    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html
    Make sure you choose the second option that says QuickTime for Windows (NOT the QuickTime with iTunes).
    Go through the download and install, and whenever it completes, try to launch iTunes.

  • This message recently popped up on my PC - "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly." What does this mean and how to fix ??

    Hi Everyone - recently this message popped up on my PC, when I was trying to import cd's into the iTunes library and then onto my iPod - "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly." Can anyone tell me what this means and how to fix it ?? I am not fantastically PC savvy, so any information explained fully and all steps to follow to get my music playing again would be great !! Thanks, SC

    Hi B, thanks so much for helping me troubleshoot !!
    Ok, so when I went in to check the Audio tab of the Sounds and Audio Device Properties, I found the following:-
    * Sound Playback Default Device = No Playback Devices.
    * Sound Recording Default Device = No Playback Devices.
    * MIDI Music Playback Default Device = No MIDI Playback Devices.
    All text in this drop-down box were light grey, and therefore unable to be selected or altered.
    I also tried playing a cd through Windows Media player, to see if I could get sound a different way. When I put the cd in and clicked on Play, the following message appeared, "Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device. There may not be a sound device installed on your PC, it may be in use by another program, or it may not be functoning properly."
    Any ideas ? I had sound previously, but then a work colleague re-built the PC to add more space to the hard drive, and since then, no sound. I know this may now not just be an iTunes issue, but I would appreciate any assistance you can offer.
    Thanks again,

    Can anyone help me with this one?
    "itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video may not playback properly."
    I can get into itunes - but nothing plays - not the radio - not my playlist.
    Please help!

    Then you may have a startup item (an item that starts up when your computer starts up) that is interfering with iTunes/Quicktime. Try following the advice here and seeing if there's anything starting up that doesn't need to be:

    Be careful of what you remove.
    Also, if you have any sort of USB or such audio hardware, try removing it and trying again.

  • When I open Itunes on my PC it says, Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly

    When I open Itunes on my PC it says, Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly. I removed some unused programs from my pc before this happened and I think I may have removed something I shouldn't have.

    I had this same problem and my sixteen year old figured it out. Since the Windows PC running iTunes (which supports a housefull of AppleTVs) was running in a closet, he suspected it was due to having no speakers attached.

    Hello Wade,
    This is typically indicative of an issue with the installation of QuickTime on your computer. The following article provides steps for reinstalling QuickTime to resolve the issue.
    "iTunes cannot run because it has detected a problem with your audio configuration"

    QuickTime may need to be reinstalled. Follow the steps below to uninstall QuickTime and then download and install QuickTime using the QuickTime standalone Installer.
    On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
