    The only recent changes I've made to my computer is the newest update from Microsoft. When I log on to XP, the startup sound is fine, but the normal system sounds are very very muffled. I've checked the levels, and checked for conflicts, and nothing seems to be wrong. Aside from the system sounds, known wav files have the same very very low volume.

    Using XP SP3, realtek 97. When I use the HRTF demo under the audio configuration, everything sounds fine. Just not sure why if all the levels are good, why things don't work.

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Read this and see if it helps:

    If you have them, uninstall and then re-install your audio drivers. Sometimes this will fix a glitch.
    Check that the Windows Audio service is set to Automatic and Started (Start => Run and type in "services.msc" {without the quotes}).
    If it's missing, download and run this fix:
    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
    Line 371 - Left
    Open Device Manager (Start => Run and type in "devmgmt.msc" {without the quotes}).
    Expand System devices, and check that 'Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator' is present and is "working properly".
    During the routine you may see "Driver is enabled but has not been started".
    If it's not present, or not "working properly", or you get the above message, see at the end of this post.
    =============================
    If it's a case of no audio just on certain websites (flash video). Read the following:
    http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_19166
    =============================
    If it's a case of just no system sounds (CD's play OK) - the beeps and clicks you hear when performing actions in Windows, download and run the fix here:
    http://www.nosystemsounds.com/
    =============================
    If you have DirectX installed, go to Start => Run and type in "dxdiag" {without the quotes}
    Run the Sound tests.
    If you don't have it, you can download DirectX.
    =============================
    If it's a case of no audio at all, and you've ruled out any audio driver problem, then run these routines:
    (You may want to print this off.)
    First the hardware ... check that your card is being recognized by your computer.
    Right-click on My Computer and select the Hardware tab.
    Click on the Device Manager button and scroll down to Sound, video and game controllers.
    Click the + sign to expand this section and make sure that your sound card is showing and that there are no yellow ! exclamation marks and no red X's against any of the devices listed.
    If all is OK, proceed to check your software settings:
    If you have a music file that's fairly long (10 minutes) or you can set to Repeat, open it and start it playing so you will know if you hit on a solution.
    Go to Start => Control Panel => Sounds and Audio Devices.
    In everything below, be sure to click the OK button after every window.
    First, under the Volume tab
    Check that the Device Volume slider is at least one-third way across.
    Check that the Mute box is cleared (unchecked).
    Check that the box Place volume icon in the Taskbar is checked.
    Click the Advanced button.
    Check that there are no Mutes and that the levels are at least one-third way up in all sections.
    Click the Speaker Volume button and check that the levels are set somewhere in the middle.
    Click the Advanced button.
    Check that Speaker setup has Desktop speakers selected.
    Click the Performance tab and check that both sliders are set to the far right.
    Next, click the Audio tab
    In the Sound Playback section check the selected Default Device. It should be set to your sound card and not your modem or anything else.
    Click the Volume button.
    Check that there are no Mutes and good levels (none at zero) for at least Volume, Wave, CD Player, etc.
    Click the Advanced button. This is the same as you saw in the Volume tab, but re-check it anyway.
    In the choice of speakers, Desktop speakers should be selected.
    Click the Performance button.
    Check that both the indicators you see are set to the far right.
    Next, click the Hardware tab
    In the list you see, highlight (select) your audio device from among the listed hardware (drives and other stuff).
    Click the Properties button.
    Check to see if it says "This device is working properly". If it doesn't we're looking at a driver problem.
    Click the Properties tab (not the Properties button).
    Expand the Audio Devices item (click the + sign) and select (highlight) your audio device.
    Click the Properties button.
    Check that the round "radio button" for 'Use audio features on this device' is checked.
    Beside Status: it should say "Driver is enabled and working properly".
    If no joy so far, back in the Hardware tab, click the Troubleshoot button.
    You can run a series of tests from here.
    ==============================
    'Plug and Play Software Device Enumerator' is missing or not "working properly".
    This fix may work, although this should normally be taken care of by reinstalling the audio drivers:
    1. Insert your Windows XP CD and find swenum.sys - either in DRIVER.CAB or SP2.CAB. Copy it to the proper location noted above. Also put it in C:\Windows\System32\drivers. If you don't find it or can't do it, just skip to step 4.
    2. Do a search in your Windows folder for machine.inf. There may be more than one location, but note down which one you select.
    Open it (double-click) and locate (near the top) the line "ExcludeFromSelect=*". Put a semi-colon followed by a space at the beginning of this line to disable it.
    3. Look for this line near the top: "SWENUM.CoInstallers.CopyFiles = 11 ; %windir%\System32".
    "%windir%\System32" indicates that the file swenum.sys should (normally) be located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder.
    Close machine.inf, saving changes.
    4. Go to Control Panel => Add New Hardware. Follow the wizard and manually select to Add System Device. Click on 'Have disk'. Navigate to machine.inf. You will have to do a search in your Windows folder. In the list of Standard Devices on the left, select "Plug and Play Software Enumerator" on the right. Finish the installation.
    Restart the computer.

    The tips you suggested didn't prove successful, however, while waiting for your reply, I tried a few web sites and games that have been known working. For instance, I have Microsoft FSX, and I hear most engine sounds, but not the ATC voices. I tried an Internet Blues radio station, and it brings up Windows media player fine, but when I try to play a wav that did work, it is very very low. YouTube video is fine, but audio is just like the system sounds. Bringup things like Full Tilt Poker is ok, but all the card shuffles and other sounds are very very low. My .wav volume controls are fine. I just can't seem to figure this one out.

    I didn't try unloading and reloading the drivers. I do that from the device manager, correct?

    Yes, correct.

    By the way, I'm a big blues fan. Do you know a great free Blues radio station on the Web?

    The one I was talking about is at: http://www.koqx.com/

    I did uninstall and reinstall the RealTek drivers, and that didn't help. I don't know how to determine it, but it seems like something else is controlling the wav file volume.

    I never have an easy solution to any of my problems.

    In that case:

    WAV playback problems
    If you’re having trouble playing back WAV files, there are a couple of ways to correct the problem. First, verify that the problem isn’t just with one particular file. You can do this by opening and attempting to play a standard Windows XP WAV file, such as \WINDOWS\MEDIA\WINDOWS XP STARTUP.WAV.

    WAV driver update
    If the test WAV file doesn't play, check the system’s WAV configuration by opening Control Panel and clicking Sound Speech And Audio Devices, followed by Sound And Audio Devices to view the Sound And Audio Devices properties sheet. Select the Hardware tab to view a list of all of the audio components installed on the system. Select the WAV playback device and click the Properties button. Unlike the MIDI device, though, the WAV device tends to be easy to spot; it usually has the same name as the sound card.

    After clicking the Properties button, you’ll see the WAV device’s properties sheet. Select the Driver tab and verify that a driver is installed for the device. If the driver provider is Microsoft or if the driver is not installed and the system has a name brand sound card, I recommend downloading a new driver from the sound card manufacturer’s Web site. You can install the new driver by following the same instructions for using the Update Driver button in the MIDI section above.

    Audio Codecs
    After updating the driver, return to the Sound And Audio Devices properties sheet and verify that a listing for Audio Codecs exists. If not, there’s no way that you’ll be able to play back WAV files. To solve this problem, open Control Panel and click on Performance And Maintenance, followed by System. When you see the System properties sheet, select the Hardware tab. Using the Device Manager, remove all references to the sound card. After doing so, use the Hardware tab’s Add Hardware Wizard to redetect the sound card. When you do, make sure to supply Windows with the new device driver.

    Check the WAV hardware device
    Let’s assume that you’ve already updated the system with the latest driver for the WAV device, but WAV playback still doesn’t work. The system could have associated WAV playback with the wrong hardware device. To fix this problem, return to the Sound And Audio Devices properties sheet. Look at the top section of the Audio tab for a section called Sound Playback. This section contains a drop-down list that allows you to select which device should be used as the system’s default WAV device. You’ll usually only have one audio device available to you in this drop-down list, but if multiple audio devices are listed, try using each of them.

    I've looked through all of these suggestions, and there's still no luck. Drivers up to date, everything seems normal. Actually, I experimented while in the windows/media directory. The Windows XP Startup.wav plays normal, but most others play like the are on a volume setting of 1 instead of normal with the sound being very muffled. Same as any other wav file I've looked at. Very, Very confusing.

    The problem seems to have happened since I updated Windows recently. When I looked at the Update History, the only thing I could see is an update related to Media Player with the following details:

    Update for Windows XP (KB959772)
    Install this update to enable Windows Media Player to automatically correct an error which may occur when DRM protected content requires an update to the license. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

    Should I remove that specific update and try again?

    You might know if you remove the update. However, I've downloaded this update without any issue. Try it and we'll see. You can always get it back later.

    Just removed the update. No luck. Now I'm really lost. How do I tell what else has control over the wav files? I've tried to play even the windows audio files in everything that I can think of. It's so frustrating, I'm about ready to implement the TPS fix. (That would be a TEN POUND SLEDGE)!

    What next?

    Haven't tried a system restore yet. The part I'm worried about with that, is it may take me to a working version again, but still won't tell me what happened. Is there anything we can find in maybe another program that wants to take control of wavs? A HiJackThis readout or something? Would that help?
