MIDI Audio Problem

Hi everyone,

I’m having a problem playing MIDI files on my computer using a Realtek AC97 soundcard. It plays but no sound comes out. I’ve tried updating drivers, downloading other audio programs, and every other thing I could think of but nothing helps.

In control panel Audio Properties there is a drop down box where you can select Default MIDI playback device. When I select my soundcard (the only available selection there) and click apply, it bounces back to an empty selection. Please help me with this [problem. Thank you so much
