    Problems with the Windows sounds

    Hi people! Since a few months, it seems that my Windows regular sounds had just disappears.

    Exemple : Windows startup : no sounds
    Msn messengers : No alert sounds
    Empty the trash can : Just a bip from the motherboard speaker

    I have looked at the sounds settings in control panel, they're all on ! Volume controls : all on !

    By any chances, Does someone have an idea on this ?

    have u tried playing anything, like a cd or your media player?....do you get sound then....have u checked your hardware to see if the sound card is showing any conflict symbols....it may be a driver issue. What OS are u running?

    I can play all other sounds : Games, cds , Net, etc... .

    I've updated to the latest driver possible for my sound card yesterday after a Win2K repair.

    Card says that driver is working properly.

    What i have is Win2k with sound card Soundblaster live.

    Lightbulb Solution

    Finally found the only solution to this problem.

    Fully reinstall Windows 2000.

    No other way.
