    Been like this for a while and I'm not sure how to get it back. Everything else is fine. I just doublechecked and they are all activated and the test play works. I just don't get sounds in teh situations above.

    Anyone have any clue as to why??? I could use any help I can get right now.

    Thanks!! :)

    You didn't say what operating system so, I will guess a flavor of 9x.

    Go to start-> Settings -> control panel double click the sound icon and check to make sure the schemes tab is set to windows default. If it already is, change it to no sounds, reboot, go back in and change it to windows default then reboot. If you are running a desktop theme, you may want to change that and ensure it is set to change the sounds also.

    Let us know
