Default Sound Problem

Hi Everyone! This is my first post

I'm having a problem with a pc can anyone help me out?

Its an XP home system. It plays music in itunes but won't play system sounds i.e. boot sound, msn sounds. Any idea whats wrong

I've tried updating drivers but that didn't work

My friend discovered the problem when trying to play music on But i think it's been like this for a while.

Thanks for any ideas i'm stumped

Give me some background....Itunes, isn't that an Apple pay per song deal? So you buy a song and download it as an AAC file? Have you installed proprietary software that reads AAC files? It might be the software defualt to AAC, and if that is the case, your standard windows sounds would then be defaulting to that software which does not read windows media. ??????
