    I was in the middle of a play list in WinAmp, my sound player of choice, when I received and opened an e-card, sent to me from a friend. I went to the site where the card was. I waited quite a while and the card did not appear, just the music. So I closed the window. As soon as I closed the window that I had the site open in the music that was playing in WinAmp stoped. I checked it and it was still playing but there was no sound. To make a long story short, I tried everything I could think of and as of right now, I can't listen to music on WinAmp, music on a CD in my CD drive, any sound in Windows Media Player, any sound effects on any website other then the one where the card is, and I don't even get the sounds I usually get when I'm clicking on my favorits menues and stuff like that. The only sound that will come out of this computer right now is the music on the card that seems to have caused the whole problem in the first place.
    All I can figure is that the site somehow changes some settings on my computer or something like that. But I'm at a complete loss as to how to find the exact problem and fix it.
    By the way, the site is www.bluemountain.com that caused the problem and I'm using Windows ME.

    I'd really appreciate any suggestions.

    No problems with that site here.

    Have you tried doubleclicking the System Tray icon for your sound card, or otherwise opening it, and verifying whether all volume sliders are 'open'?

    And have you checked all tabs and radio buttons in Control Panel/Multimedia?

    Thanks, but yeah, I've tried all that. I think I'm going to try to use the windows restore option. See if that helps. I've just got to figure out how to do it. I've never done it before.

    Yeah, I might need to try that. But I haven't made any changes in my system settings in a while so I'm going to try the system restore first. If that doesn't work I'll re-install winamp. The weird thing is that it's affecting all sound applications, web, cd-rom drive, windows media player etc. Thanks
