sound only works for one user, but not other user logins

I'm puzzled. I'm running XP. When I log in under my name, the computer sound works fine. When my wife or son log in, they get no sound. Any ideas how to fix?

  1. well what do their audio settings look like in the control panel, nothing is muted? everything is setup properly?

    what if you create a new profile just for testing
  2. I am having the same problem.
    one user gets sound and the main user doesnt :x

    i have checked all the settings that I know of in the control panel and cant find any problems there :cry:

    one thing that i thought may have been a problem was i installed a demo version of NERO 7 and when it expired it wouldny let me use it (obvously) but also when I treid to run different media items the Nero box would come up and ask for the rego and therefor I couldnt get the item to play.

    I treid to uninstall Nero but it didnt exist in the programs list and so in the end I just deleted all the files in the Nero folder. This maybe completly unrelated but i thought I had better mention it :idea:

    Can anyone plase help :)
