Hope this is the right place to post this, if not I apologise.
Recently I lost system sounds (startup and shutdown etc.) and all sound in anything flash related/based (YouTube etc.).
I removed all my codecs when I was trying to get Movie Maker working and it screwed up these sounds it seems. I've installed codecs again and new drivers and no luck.
I've tried googling this problem but just find mostly unrelated junk and people with the same unresolved issues :(
Other than those sounds everything else works; MP3, AVI, MPG, WMV etc.
At first I thought it was just flash, reinstalling that didn't help. Then I noticed the startup and shutdown sounds were missing and checked to see if they were turned on, which they are. It won't let me play any of the system sounds in the Sounds menu from Control Panel either. I also think other sounds, such as MSN Messneger ones, get interrupted at times too.
Can anyone help me? :(
