Have you tried dxdiag? if you thing DX may be to blame.

I have tried dxdiag,and I can hear the test files ok i have even used audio acceleration slider set to basic,the problem seemed to have started after i downloaded a plane file for MS flight sim 2002 I have long since erased the offending plane but the problem still remains :(
