    No Beep (All)

    In any VBA application (Access, Excel, Word,...2003 or 2007) and even in VB Express 2008 I have no Beep sound on one of my pc's. All other sounds are OK.
    Anyone an idea ?

    Do you have a sound set for Default Beep in your sound scheme in the Sounds etc. control panel?

    Allegedly, uninstalling Norton Anti-Virus can cause this - see Default Beep Missing - a few years old but may still be applicable.

    Try this:
    - Go to Kelly Theriot's Tweaks and Tips.
    - Download, then open the .reg file in line #6 on the right hand side ("Fix the Ding.Wav File").
    - Windows will ask for confirmation, and if you click Yes, you should see a message that the information has successfully been entered into the registry.
    - Open the Sounds control panel to check whether you have a default beep now.

    Thanks Hans and Leif

    The registry fix from Hans did it.
