What about other system sounds? Do they play ok or how do they sound?

You may need to reinstall your audio software.

Give more details of your system and someone may have an answer.

What sound card do you have? If you know it, get the latest drivers from the manufacturer. If you don't know, then get Aida32 to id the sound card for you. click here#
