    Hello All,
    I'm new to the site, so don't beat me up too bad if I don't make much sense at first....I'm sure I'll get the hang of this ;) . I am having problems getting sounds for the applications. I go to Control Panel, Sounds and Multimedia to get different sounds for some of the applications. For example...when Windows open or close, I would like to use the Windows default sound. But in the name box, there is nothing there. I go to browse, but not sure which file to look in, if in fact there is something there. I am running Windows 2000. I've been trying to fix this problem for about 3 weeks and have just about given up....but I stumbled upon this site and hope someone could help. If anyone has any suggestions, please send them my way.

    Well explained, you certainly wont get beat up!

    I am using XP, but it shouldn't be that much different.

    In the Sounds name box, as you have nothing there it does suggest that the default .wav sounds have been deleted?

    If you use Search (Start - Search) and look for "*.wav" files it should confirm that they have been deleted, or (hopefully) where they are on your HDD so you can browse for them.

    As a guide, mine are all in C:\Windows\Media.

    Good luck!

    If they have somehow been deleted, you should be able to get them off of your Windows disc (provided you still have it).
