    After aim is running for 30 minutes or so all of its sounds stop working. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that didnt fix it. This started about a month ago or so. Anyone know how to fix it?

    Stop running AIM. Try Miranda, or some other reasonable, spam free IM client.

    is it only AIM's sounds that stop or does all sound stop working on your computer? i agree that there are much better AIM clients than the actual one released by AOL, but if it is affecting more than just AIM you'll probably still have something to fix.

    It is just aim, I have tried a few of the other ones, but didn't find one that I particularly liked. I'll try them out again, there have probably been some updates since the last time that I used them

    And I wish Adium could send/receive files. Its pretty ridiculous that the IM client most mac users use... can't send/receive files.

    After a reboot? Sounds like this is not connected to AIM.

    Sounds like a driver/hardware problem. My life has gotten MUCH better since I went out of my way to not know how to fix such problems. :big grin: I punt.

    It's good when AIM stops bleeping at you. That shit will get you killed if you ever have a roommate, just so you know.

    i use trillian instead of aol's client. at work i use meebo.com but that's only because everything else is blocked. :)


    have you tried reinstalling your sound drivers?

    Just reinstalled them, we will see what happens. Also I am using aim ad-hack, not regular AIM so I don't have to deal with all that annoying spam shit ;)

    Re-installing didn't help. I think I'm gonna switch to Trillian, any plug-ins/customizations that are good?

    I'm thinking that ALL sound stopped working, right? It doesn't sound related to AIM.

    Can someone help this guy fix his sound?
