MessageBeep() doesn't give a sound

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Hartmut \(Harry\) Kloppert, Sep 8, 2010.

  1. My HP-Notebook( with W7 64-bit) all of a sudden (probably after
    executing one of the "cleaners") stopped given a sound with the
    MessageBeep() API. Also modal screens (e.g. messageboxes in Word) usually
    give a sound when you click oiutside of the box. But not on my computer
    All other sounds are fine, e.g. log on/off, Media Player, etc.
    I tried a lot of things (driver, sound configurations, etc.) w/o success.
    On my wife's identical machine it works flawless.
    Any idea, where to check or compare?

    Try system restore to a moment before the alleged "cleanup".
    That should bring things back to normal.
