Hi all, For the last two days I have noticed that my PC is no longer issuing any sound for any Windows events. I checked the obvious, like volume settings and sound and audio devices and cannot pinpoint the problem. My speakers are built into the display screen so it can't be a loose cord or anything like that. Any more detailed suggestions on what to try? I am running Windows XP Professional.

Thx

David

what do you mean any windows events?

Do you mean the opening sound when windows starts or the sound when an alert comes up?

Are you still able to play audio files like mp3s or wma?

Yes, that is what I mean by Windows events, any event that is programmed to initiate a sound file. That includes all AOL events also, like Welcome, You got Mail, etc.

Second, I do not receive any sound for any sound file located on my PC, that includes video formats also, get picture, no sound.

try updating the driver for your sound device.

If you do not know the make of your sound device then download Aida32 from the download section. It will provide a list of the components of your computer.
