  1. I am having an issue with some sounds being there, some not.
    Music cds, some games, wma files, etc, all play fine.
    I am missing startup sounds, warning sounds, all sounds on Battlefield 1942, gun sounds on Combat Flight Simulator, and cant hear anything on You tube and some other video sites.
    I have talked to HP tech, chatted with HP tech, all to no avail.
    My system is Windows Media 2005 Rollup 2 with a Realtek HD sound set. A
    Any ideas???? Pleeeeeaaase!!

    Sounds to me like it's a codec problem? Try reinstalling/updating the Realtek drivers and perhaps that will solve it. If it's a specific codec, I'm not much good with those and couldn't point you in the right direction.
