    I am using Windows 98 SE, my default sound has disappeared (Control Panel/Sounds/sound Properties), I have checked my registry and at Hkey Current User and Hkey Users, under .Default\AppEvents\Eventlabels\.default there is a key for default sound, but it is just not showing up, please help

    My advice is go to housecalls & run the free online virus scanner.
    Click here to do so!

    always safer than not sure...

    Have you looked in system properties ( is that what you meant)
    if so... try add hardware see if its there .
    select I want to find it myself
    sound,video & game controllers

    Go back to sound properties>click on default sound and highlight it>go to the name box below it>click the down arrow>scroll down and click "ding">click the arrow button in the preview to see if that is it.

    I have found the solution but still do not know what caused it.

    To get the Deafult sound showing agin in the Control Panel/Sound/properties, I went into add/remove software/windows setup, and deintall multimedia/mutimedia sound scheme, and immediately re install it. It came back, then chose a sound file for the event and bob's your uncle.
