    No IM sounds? What'd I do?
    I've already run through the preferences tab in ichat. I don't get a sound when I send or receive IM's or when I send mail through mal (that little "whoosh" was most gratifying ) So if anyone has any suggestions as to what may be wrong . You'd figure after about 6months with OS X I'd have figured out how to undo anything I did by accident...not so.

    Well here's the thing. I can't hear the whoosh for mail, IM alerts, the trash can "thunk" when I drop stuff in there and so forth. So any ideas?

    Did you reboot? If so, do you have Garage Band on your Mac? If so, open it and hit a few keys and make a few sounds then try your alert sounds.

    Ok to fix this go to Applications then Utilities then open up "Audio MIDI Setup" and then set your Audio Input and Output Format to 44100.0 Hz and everything should work again. You probably have a game or program that sets this to something else and it should be set to the above.

    Ah, Murlyn thanks for the input. However, when I opened Audio MIDI Setup audio input was already at 44100.0 and audio output said output is not supported (and I'm not sure if it's suppose to be or not). Methinks I'm smelling a trip to an Apple Store.
