    For some reason I can't get the Messenger sounds to play correctly on my
    machine. All I hear are what sounds like the sound starting to play, but
    being cutoff very quickly. The wink sounds (Flash animations) play fine.

    Is there a reason for this? I have made sure my sound drivers are all up to
    date. It is only with messenger I have this problem (other messengers, the
    sounds play fine).

    By any chance do you have a Sound Blaster Live Sound Card? If so, it's a
    known issue which should be addressed in the 8.1 release.
