As of yesterday, the sound on my computer has stopped working. I run Window XP Home. I use a pair of powered Sony desktop speakers. My Windows Media Player version 10 works fine and I can still listen to music (am doing so now). But my e-mail notification wav and start up and shut down wav files no longer play. I went into my device manager and all my sound devices are reported to be enabled and working properly. All volume levels are up and mute has not been selected on anything. I'm at a loss.
I use Outlook Express as an e-mail program and Mozilla Firefox as a browser, not that I would think that either of these would have any affect on the sound schemes of my PC. The only other recent change I have made was the installation of Skype.

START > CONTROL PANEL > SOUNDS, choose sound tab

You can choose a default SOUND SCHEME here, or scroll the list and make your own, forexample, choose EMAIL NOTIFICATION, then browse for a wave file

I've tried that. Still nothing. When I select wav files already assigned to program events and press the play triangle to sample them, I get nada.
