Get the feeling he has unchecked midi. Tittle did you reinstall sound drivers?
I display my sound icon in notification area (where your clock is) just right click it open properties>options check all boxes then o.k. Then make sur ein Play control it is not muted and volume is up high.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
