Sound

Although my sounds work in control panel/media and sounds, the windows start up and exit music don't play when I start and exit. My sound card is SiS7012 which is on the Motherboard CD. When I just did a custom Windows update it said I could download C-Media AC 97 Audio Device. Should I do that?

Hi auffief

if you say that ur sounds work in control panel then there is no need for any driver as the same is present. To further check if your sound device is present you can check with any media player to re-confirm the presence of sound driver.
If it is only the startup & exit of the windows then go to>control panel>sound and devices>on sounds on devices properties > sounds> in the programme events scroll down & YOU will find WHAT YOU NEED.

GOOD LUCK

Set up is OK

Both are there and when I test them there, they play. They don't play, however when I start or shutdown Windows

"sound schemes" Auggie. Check in the control panel, "sounds and audio devices" and then "sounds" tab. Where it says "sound scheme" make sure "Windows Default" is set where the drop down box is. Below that it lists the sounds that are supposed to play such as the ones you are looking for plus mail coming in, recycle bin, etc. If "Windows Default" is NOT selected, just select that and click "apply" "OK" at the bottom of the page. Do NOT click "save as" next to the propdown box.

Roddy. Did all that. Everything is right except the sounds just don't play when I turn on computer and shut it down which is when they should play. They only time they play when I go into sounds and test them. I'm not sure of when it started but it might have something to do with my installing SP2 a long time ago. If not, it might be a conflict between windows and the SiS 7012 driver. Windows doesn't approve of that driver and tells me so when I install it.
