Sound Advice For Sound Problems
One thing that perplexes many users is that they can hear the sounds on their computer just fine but they cannot hear music on Web sites like our "Name That Tune" contest page. The reason for this is: Sounds that programs make on your computer are, for the most part, WAV files. WAV files are real recorded sounds. MIDI "Music", like that on our "Name That Tune" contest page are MIDI files, which are not real recorded sounds. Instead, Midis are synthesized sounds which more or less sound like musical instruments. Which means the same devices and drivers needed to hear WAV files are not the same ones that you need to hear MIDI sounds. Both types of sounds, of course, require you to have a sound card and speakers.

Click here to see if you can hear sound. If you do not, then it means
the sound problem is an issue on your system and the following will assist
you in getting back your sound. Keep in mind there are two main types of
sound files used on the web, "mid or midi" and "wav" files. Just because you
can hear one, does not mean you can hear the other. That is why some people
think they can hear sound at some websites, and not at others.

Internet Explorer/Outlook Express. You can try the repair feature (Internet
Explorer 5x only) for this; instructions on this can be found on our FAQ
page. Many people get corrupt installations because they do not turn off all
running programs when setting up Internet Explorer/Outlook Express;
Microsoft recommends you turn all programs off while installing updates
including anti-virus protection programs.
