Q: Why don't my AIM sounds work?
A: You might need to check your sound settings.

Windows: Go to the Sounds tab in AIM preferences. Make sure that there is a sound file associated with each event and that the sound events are all enabled. If no sound file is listed for one of the events, click Browse, and choose a sound in the Sounds directory in your AIM directory. If a sound file is already chosen for an event, click Browse, and select the sound file again from the Sounds directory inside the AIM directory.

If a sound file is listed but you don't get any sound when you click Preview, it is possible that the sound file is damaged. If checking your sound settings doesn't fix the problem, try reinstalling AIM as a last resort. If you don't have a sound card, choose the Beep option to allow AIM to use your PC internal speaker.
