    Error sounds won't play

    I've been having a problem, and it started ever since I changed my system sound scheme. It worked fine until I restarted my computer, and now whenever I get an error or trigger things that should make a sound, nothing happens. I changed it back to default but still no sound from error messages. In case your wondering, it's only the sound that won't work, the error message or notification still pops up, it's just no sound plays.

    Hi a person. Welcome to the TenForums @a person

    First off I would right click the speaker in the lower right corner, systray or notification area, then open volume mixer. What level are the system sounds set to. If they are not muted and are loud enough to hear, close that window. (move the slider up to at least half way.)

    Next right click speaker and this time click sounds. In the sounds window that opened look for Critical stop. Is there a little speaker to the left of the words. If a speaker is present click on test. Did you hear a sound? (make sure volume is loud enough.)

    If there is no speaker present move down to sound box and pick a sound. Click test. If you heard a sound then click apply.

    Post back what happened.
