I'm running XP on a P4 processor.
I have lost my log on startup sound, my shutting down sound and my recycle bin sound when I empty it.
I have tried to change the sound scheme from custom to windows default and back again without success.
I have gone into the windows file and checked that all of the media folder is intact and not corrupted, it is fine.
When I'm in the sound scheme setup and I play the related sounds to windows default with that little play sound button found in the sound scheme setup, it plays fine.
Here's the kicker, all other button click sounds and messenger sounds and IE sounds are working perfectly, as is the ability to play any other sound or video file with media player.
I have tried selecting other .wav sound files using the browser button in sound scheme setup without success.
Heck, I've even gone through the volume settings just to make sure none of them are on mute.
Every other sound plays fine except these three and I swear, I haven't installed any weird new programs or tried anything funky on my system.
System is clean of viruses, adware, spam ... nothing that would explain this.
So, totally at a loss, I turn to the experts.
lol, thanks for your time people.
