I had v4.6 installed on my XP Pro machine and got an alert to upgrade to v4.7, which I did.
I'm not sure whether the problem was there right away after the upgrade or if it took some time to develop, but I've since uninstalled it completely and, after a restart, installed v4.6 again.
The problem is to do with the sound; the only sound I get when someone sends me a message or logs in is a bleep from the motherboard. I've checked the sounds in the appropriate options dialogue box, and the sounds I used to hear are still attached to the appropriate commands, such as Contact online, New Message.
Googling has come up with no ideas. Can anyone help?
what sound did you used to get? I thought they were pretty much all you got anyway? I turned my sounds off, but don't remember getting that many sounds to begin with. The main problem soundwise I keep getting with it, is the sound for the cam keeps disappearing so i have to use the audio tuning wizard to get it back.
You could try uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Assuming you can, as pre sp1 you can't (and neither can i) Don't think I ever got any noises from hotmail tho. Try having a look in the audio tuning wizard at speakers, don't know if it affects general sounds but worth a try. Second bottom option under Tools.
