    I can't get any audio sound for music or videos (or even "sounds"). However, in my music creation software (Finale, Band in a box) it works perfectly. so there's nothing wrong with the speakers or sound card, etc.

    Is there a setting somewhere that I have somehow violated?

    T:confused: o try to solve this, I did a system restore and it restored my sound. However, I had subsequently installed and done a bunch of tortuous, special setup with Dreamweaver, and I cannot restore the machine to a time when I had both the sound and also Dreamweaver. so I'm stuck...

    I notice that on Wed. of last week, it indicates that a "Software distribution service 2.0" did something at 11;34 p.m. Anyone know what that means? Because, I can restore back to Tuesday and have the sound, but after that "Software distribution service 2.0," the sound is gone. something messed with the setting or whatever. To reiterate: I get sound just fine with my music audio programs, but not in anything else...Please, any ideas?
