I have one problem, i have experienced blue screen on windows 7 and after restart all system sounds are not working, sounds from plugins are not workings (flash player in any browser) but sounds that I playback trough winamp, windows media player, bs player are working fine. When I go to sound settings for system sounds and I chose sound for example windows startup and I click test it doesn't play.

I don't know what to do?

It can be a hardware or a software issue.

Try that to solve a software issue:
- see your device manager (win+break then "device manager"). If some drivers are marked with exclamation or question mark, see what is the problem with them (properties). Try to reinstall them and test the sound
- reinstall your codecs (try K-Lite Mega Codec Pack in www.superdownloads.com.br) and test the sound
- reinstall your sound drivers. Although is is not marked with exclamation or question mark, remove current driver and reinstall it. Test the sound

Then try to get Windows updates. If it does not fix it, then reinstall Windows 7; try to use another Windows 7 DVD.

No solution for this, only one was to reinstall my system.
