HI -

A client's workstation running Windows 7 Pro desktop will not play any system's functions but it does make sound when the computer boots up and shuts down.  In Control Panel the sound app shows the system's sounds and the arrow is green - meaning it thinks it is working.  The sound is not muted, the volume is set to the highest and in Control Panel,  Under the Playback tab and Properties the sound works under the Advanced tab when it is tested then.

Any help would be appreciated.
