View Full Version : Where'd the other half of my sound go?

After a while part of the sound seems to disappear. As in the maximise and minimise sounds still work but the sound when you click on the start menu stops working.

Will work fine when you run the sound manually though.

Have tried drivers and windows update.

You may have a 'theme' with sounds that play when you do certain things; like click your start button, goto Control Panel>Sounds and select 'NO SOUNDS' from the drop down menu and see if that does anything.

When I select No Sounds I end up with having absolutely no sound. When I select another theme, I still have no sound for the start menu.

But after rebooting it will come back.
