    When I get 'are you sure?' type pop up windows, eg exit without saving a word doc, instead of getting the expected sounds(Control panel>sounds), or no sounds at all, which is what used to happen, I'm getting a system beep from inside the actual case, not the speakers. I'm not too worried..it's just a bit 'why's it doing that?', ya know?

    Just tried doing controlpanel>sounds and changing the sound scheme to windows deault and no sounds and it doesnt make a blind bit of difference...

    From the Control Panel, select Sounds and Audio Devices. On the Audio tab, on the 3 drop down lists, make sure your sound card is selected on each one and not any other device (like a bluetooth device). If your sound card isn't available it might suggest you need to reinstall the sound card drivers.

    Ooh, there's a 'MIDI music playback' choice as well as 'Sound playback/recording' and it's set to 'Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth' with no other options.. is this the problem perhaps? ('Sound playback/recording' are both set to my soundcard)

    No, that should be fine. It's probably a different problem then, have you Googled it?

    Yeah (admittedly just now :p:), it came up with this thread and something you have to register for to see the answer.

    I'd not noticed the 'MIDI music playback' option until this problem started.
