Ive lost all my sounds,new email,windows start up etc.im not bothered much about the windows start up/close down but i would like to get the new email sound back in operation.windows media player works okay plenty of volume there its just the program sounds that i have lost completely.when i go into sounds and audio devices if i click on the new mail icon which has no speaker icon next to it a box appears saying[windows cannot find the file % system root % media windows xp sound . wav.]& the lowewr drop down box has none written there.ive tried system restore with no joy,can anyone please help me as i would like to get this email sound back up and running.Thankyou.
You could do a search to see if the folder has moved somewhere else, if you cannot find any trace do a RUN/sfc /scannow. an example to look for: Windows XP Error If it finds that it may point you to the rest.
