    sound. (start up sounds etc. there is nothing) please help. I've checked the
    volume controls in the control panel and they are all at %100

    Have you had a look under the levels too?

    If you go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Sound -> Speakers ->
    Properties -> Levels. There are some more volume controls there for
    specific types of content.

    There's also the application mixer. Which you can get to by clicking the
    volume icon and going to Mixer, there will be a slider for Windows Sounds
    too.
