I have recently moved house which of course ment the PC was disconnected and reconnected again at the other end. Since then though I have had a problem with the sounds on my PC. I can listen to music through Windows Media Player fine with sound from all the speakers (only 2 of 4 worked with my old setup). But no other sounds work.
All the normal sounds to say I have new mail, that my PC is switching off and any sounds you can normally expect with internet browsing are absent. Also music cannot be played through the Nero player when it could previously.
What have I done wrong that Windows Media player works better than before but nothing else works at all?
My OS is XP and I have no idea what my sound card is.
Check that you actually have a sound theme active by selecting 'Sounds' in the Control Panel.
If this is active then make sure that you have not muted .wav files under options within the sound 'mixer' (Double click on the speaker icon in the system tray) Also, make sure that the .wav volume is turned up.
