My old computer ( operating with Windows 2000) normally sounds pretty good.

Sometimes when I boot up--if I don't hear the normal start up sounds, then its like the sound is dead. IF I try to play music in Winamp when startup does this, THEN the player has No indicator of position or place in the file ( the button you'd drag to play at a different point of the song ). Usually just a re-boot 'fixes' this recurrent issue.

This problem is Different from that.....a NEW--unseen before --Problem.

I had been playing music earlier. Later I tried to play something else .......NOT a new file....been played before....and it was scratchy..wouldn't play...but was NOT that absolutely dead non-sound I mentioned earlier. So I reinstalled Winamp.

NO change.

Then I tried to play that file in other players....

NO change.

Then I tried to play avi & other video files.

NO sound.

Any ideas about what seems to be a systemic problem...?

The first thing to try is to uninstall/reinstall the audio driver. Have you done that yet?
