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.
