Windows 7: Default System Sounds/Windows Sounds do not playback

13 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Default System Sounds/Windows Sounds do not playback

I am experiencing the same issue as this user and this user.

I noticed my log on, log off, error sounds, usb sounds do not do not playback after a period of time. System sounds do not playback even when I preview them in Control Panel. All other sounds play fine, Youtube, Winamp, MPC-HC, etc. Just not the default Windows sounds.

If I reboot my system the sound comes back. The only game I've been playing recently is Battlefield 3 but I've tried searching BF3 forums regarding this issue and nothing's come up.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 my soundcard is the ASUS Essence ST (1.41 UNi drivers).
