    Unable to hear the sound in Windows XP startup

    I have already checked the “Sound and devices” settings and there is sound set for the Windows XP startup but still I won’t hear the sound. Why is that? What might be causing the problem? Can someone give me the needed information to fix the sound problem in my Windows PC? Thank you.

    4. Goto start menu / run again and this time type in NOTEPAD and click return

    5. Now right click on the notepad window and select paste. Then select save from the file menu and save the file, make sure the filename you enter ends in .REG Remember where you saved the file and close notepad

    6. Finally, navigate to your saved file and double click on it. You will see a dialoge asking whether you are sure you want to add the information from the file to the regestry, simply click OK. Once this is done, then try the website you have been having trouble with and see if it works. Any problems, simply double click the backup file you created in step 1 and this will restore your regestry back to what it was.
