Hi

My system sounds have suddenly stopped working.

Games CDs etc. all work fine just no system sounds.

In the sounds & audio devices I have default sound scheme chosen.
The only program events are for messenger and chat.

TIA

Hi,

Did you check your mixer to make sure the volume is high enough or not muted?
Did you check your connections to the speakers?

What was installed before this started?

Hi,

Is your sound card drivers "working properly" in Device Manager?
Is there any devices with a yellow dot and/or a type called "Other Devices" in Device Manager?

Oops sorry! I am reading too many threads at the same time!

Go through the devices on the Hardware tab of the Sounds and Audio Devices applet in the Control Panel to see if they are all "working properly".

From the Sounds tab, does the play button work?
From the Audio tab, is the Sound Playback Default Device set to your sound card?
If "Use only default device" is checked, try deselecting on the Audio tab.

Hi Sylvain

No problem - thank you for taking the time to help.

1.Play button is 'greyed out'
2.Yes - sound card is set to default.
3.'Use only default device' is unchecked.

Hi,

At this point I would try to un-install any software/drivers for the sound card, shutdown/power off and remove the sound card, reboot into Windows, shutdown/power off again and re-insert the sound card, reboot and supply drivers when new hardware is found. Hopefully this time all sound components will be installed correctly.

Hi Sylvain

That didn't work but I was given a link to a file called restoresounds.reg which did the trick.

Thank you once again for taking the time to help.

All the best
