Hello there, I'm hoping someone might be able to help with this...

I seem to have lost sound this evening on my computer, I only noticed this when it became apparent that my msn instant message alert wasn't sounding... I haven't (wittingly, anyway!) changed any settings or anything like that, and I managed to plug in a different hard drive to the same pc - and sound played perfectly well, so I'm guessing it's not a hardware issue.

I'd previously been listening to a bbc radio station online, which plays through a real player plug-in, and I at one point muted the volume control on the little real player - this is probably not as relevant as I might think, but I remember having real player on one older pc that I had. If I muted any clip or sound in real player, opening up any other clip or sound in a different media player would result in no sound being heard - I'd have to re-open real player, and slide the volume back up on it to hear sound in, for example, WMP - a possible connection here?

Any ideas and/or thoughts would be much appreciated!

Do a system restore and see if that helps.

if not, go to control panel then sound and audio device and uncheck the mute section.
