I've been experimenting on my ME machine and was finally able to duplicate the problem AND fix it... :whistling:

Let's hope this works for you, too.

Make sure you have a copy of the system.ini tucked safely away in your "My Documents" folder. Then open the system.ini file in the search results window by double clicking on it. Delete the line in red below and then press "Delete" again to remove the space it leaves between lines of text. Close the window, choosing "Yes" to save the change.

[boot]
oemfonts.fon=vga850.fon
shell=Explorer.exe
system.drv=system.drv
drivers=mmsystem.dll power.drv
user.exe=user.exe
gdi.exe=gdi.exe
sound.drv=mmsound.drv
dibeng.drv=dibeng.dll
comm.drv=comm.drv
mouse.drv=mouse.drv
keyboard.drv=keyboard.drv
*DisplayFallback=0
fixedfon.fon=vgafix.fon
fonts.fon=vgasys.fon
386Grabber=vgafull.3gr
display.drv=pnpdrvr.drv
SCRNSAVE.EXE=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\3DPIPE~1.SCR

Reboot...you will still have no sound... :blink:

Search for system.ini again and double click on the file in the search results window. At the bottom of the [Boot] section, add the line drivers=mmsystem.dll and press "Enter" to add a space between the [Boot] section and the section under it. Close the window, again accepting the change.

Reboot...do you have sound?

Have you tried the troubleshooter? That may shed some light on the sound problem. At least it will be something to try while I research this some more. :whistling:
  • Click "Start" and then "Help"
  • In the Search box at the upper right, type troubleshooter
  • Click the Sound Troubleshooting link
  • Click the option that best describes your problem and then click "Next"
  • Repeat step 4 until your problem is resolved or you have reached the end of the troubleshooting path
