    If I'm understanding you right. It's the system sounds that you can't hear. Try left click on the little speaker on your taskbar (bottom right). Then your volume control sould show. At the bottom of the volume slider control you should see the word "mixer". Left click on "mixer". Then you should see some more volume controls. "Master Mixer", "Windows Sounds" and maybe some others. Make sure the slider is up for "Windows Sounds". If it's already up, check to be sure it's not muted. Hope that works for you.
