    Can you provide some specs on your setup -

    Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Soundcard (dedicate s/card or onboard on motherboard.) / Win OS.

    Check in My Computer > Control Panel > System > Device Manager - are there any yellow or red ? or ! marks under Audio ....

    Have you got a little speaker icon on your taskbar (bottom right) ?
    If so right click it and select Open Volume Control.
    If the volume sliders for Midi and Wave are set to zero then slide them up a bit and see if that helps.

    If you have no speaker icon there, let me know.

    Go to the control panel, multimedia, do you have a choice to show volume control on task bar?

    You don't see the choice? It's grayed out? There's no little check mark box at the bottom? What do you see?

    See if you have the cab files on the hard drive, usually they are under C:\windows\options\cabs.
