Dear Forum

I have a sound problem on my girlfriends Win Me PC.

If I pop in an audio cd into the cd drive and use Real Player everything works/sounds fine so I know that the speakers/drivers etc are all ok.

However use Windows Media Player to play the same disc - no sound at all. Moreover, no sound from our sons pc cd games or from the browsers (IE and Firefox) or on start up.

Add to all this the problem seems to be intermittent - it started working (of its own accord) a couple of days ago after a two of weeks of silence. Now the sound has gone again.

I have considered the idea that perhaps our three year old has been hitting a keyboad shortcut to turn off/on the sound - so I have been careful to play an audio cd with both Real Player / Windows Media Player and have got music with Real Player.

Has anybody come across anything like this before and/or make a suggestion>

I restored the PC to factory conditions a month or so ago - and could do so again but would like to check if there are other options before doing so.

TIA
