What would make BEEP quit working? I've been using a paid-for TCC Version 18 on Windows Vista Home Premium since 2015, and all-of-a-sudden BEEP does NOT make any sound, but other computer sounds work and I can play mp3 and mp4 files.
The response to NET START BEEP was "The requested service has already been started" and BEEP still does not work.
If my "Windows is broken", do you have any suggestions as to WHERE it is broken since all OS sounds DO chime and playing mp3 and mp4 files DOES produce sound, ?
"In the past many problems were found in the use of the Beep API. Since Windows 7, the Beep API has been re-coded by Microsoft to work with computer sound cards. Prior to Windows 7, the API functioned only with an on-board sound chip. Unfortunately, during the transition from sound chips to sound cards, some computer manufacturers still used chips while others used cards. This is the basis of the problem for older Windows versions. No problems should be encountered in the use of the Beep API for recent builds."
Yes, I did. After a lot of disk activity, it asked me to insert my original disk -- which I have NEVER had.Have you maybe run SFC ? (system file checker?) did a disk check?
