    [Windows 10 Pro] - Personalized sounds won't play


    Hi. I just installed Windows 10 after years of avoiding it. I have already updated everything available. My computer play sounds like music and videos sothis is not an Audio Device issue.


    On Windows 7 I made an audio theme I'd like to re-do on Windows 10. I have all .wav audio files, and they all play correctly when I test them, but most just don't work. I can handle not having the predetermined beep with a custom sound, but I can't accept not having a login/logoff sound.
    I have a laptop with W10 with the exact same issue, so it's not the first time I Google this and read thousands of unanswered questions on this forums. Today I decided I would make my own question and see if someone has managed to solve it. To summarize the issue:

    • Sounds like Connect/Disconnect device, Empty trashcan and Minimize windowWORKS.
    • Sounds like Predetermined Beep and Login/Logoff DON'T WORK.
    • All audio files I'm testing are .wav and WORKED ON WINDOWS 7
    • Audio Drivers are updated.
    • Music and videos play sounds without issues.
    • This issues are happening on a DESKTOP PC


    Any way to fix this? It's a situation well known for those who like to fully customize their computers. This has been going on for a while now and I can't believe Windows hasn't solved it yet.


    Thank you

    :)
     

  2. No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.

    Thank you.

    Sony Sound Forge 7 won't open since Windows 10 upgrade

    Tried to open my registered Sony Sound Forge 7 software program today and realized that since Windows 10 upgrade, like some other software programs affected, this one won't open.

    (1) Tried some of the suggestions in regedit but didn't see all of the Sony entries listed in the steps

    (2) Tried opening with "run as administrator" - didn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Windows sound not playing after recent Win10 Update

    Hi all,

    Symptom:
    Since last windows update, windows doesn't play the windows sounds: Startup, UAC sound, exclamation, warning, notifications, etc.

    Note: Other sounds, like games, videos, calls are working well.

    I use SoundBlaster Z series sound card. Their recent driver update release notes lists that the driver is fixing this issue.

    Actions taken:
    Removed the driver completely
    rebooted
    Reinstalled the driver

    Results:
    After initial boot and subsequent restarts, the windows sounds play well.
    After a computer shutdown and startup - the above symptom is introduced again, i.e., windows sounds don't play anymore.

    I've repeated the steps above and ended up with the same problem.

    Can anyone please assist?


    Win10 Pro
    Version 1909
    OS Build 18363.657

    Thanks.
