If the above does not correct the issue:

First off have you ascertained that your computer has sound in general?

Do you have your sound MUTED on your computer or volume turned down so low that you cannot hear sounds? Using a desktop computer, if so be your speakers are plugged in and turned on. Were you gaming and have a headset still plugged in.... if so you will not hear sounds unless you have your headset on. 8-)

Go to Windows Control Panel. There, go to Sound and then to Sounds. Test sounds there. You can scroll down the list of sounds there until you come to the sub listing entitled Quicken. Test sounds there and other sounds. Are you able to select a sound, test and hear that sound?

If your computer just suddenly became unable to play sounds you can often quickly correct the issue by doing a system restore.

This will often repair corrupted audio card drivers if such drivers have been corrupted, etc.. Guess there is always a possibility your sound card has died.

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
