Select the correct output device
Open up Sound dialog and make sure you have selected the correct playback device.
Hint! Click the thumbnails for a larger view.
Make sure you restart any programs that use audio. Sometimes it's required, sometimes it's not. Web browsers usually require that you either reload the web page that uses audio and occasionally you have to restart the browser.
Open up Performance Options dialog and make sure "Animate controls and elements inside windows" is checked.
