is to check in Start/Control panel/Sounds & audio devices.

Click on the 'sounds' tab and check that the sound scheme is set as 'Windows default'

You never told us.

So you can play music etc with no problem?

Also go to start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Devive Manager > Any exclamation marks etc showing?

if sounds are set as windows default it should work the event and then click the drop down box below and associate a sound with the event.
