    WINDOWS XP I recently lost all sound on my windows live messenger. No problem with sound anywhere else just that program. Tried troubleshooting ...nothing doing. Any ideas? I'd be very grateful.

    Try reinstalling the program. If no joy go into windows sound management and check the windows messenger sounds. But before anything else i would try running system restore to go back to before the problem started.

    Thanks, I have tried both of those options but it hasn't repaired the problem...it's driving me a bit nuts! Any other thoughts?

    Have you checked the preferences to make sure you did not somehow mute the sounds? Sounds silly but it may be that all this is is that in the preferences the sound is turned off.

    did cross my mind but sadly nothing that simple...maybe I'm doomed to suffer mute IM-ing
