    Is anyone have trouble with their audio? For some reason my sound isn't functioning, be it in iTunes or streaming on YouTube.

    Whenever I try to turn on/up the volume, this box comes up (I've never seen it before)

    What type of hardware do you have?

    Is it possible that your mac is trying to use HDMI for audio? That screen would show up when using HDMI.

    Press the option key when clicking the volume slider in the menu bar to check the audio output device (or go through system prefs).

    I have a mid 2008 MacBook Pro. No, I'm not using anything, just trying to use the built in speakers. I checked the audio output device and it says "Internal Speakers" so that looks good; likewise, I checked System Profiler and it is still recognizing the built in speakers. Even when I try to play a song in iTunes, it won't. Very weird. Any other suggestions?

    I had that problem too but I tried to reboot and it solved itself :)

    I had similar issue but it was fixed. See if this will help you:

    Now I'm having the issue of random whossh sounds like when you move things out of your dock--it makes a whoosh noise. so, out of nowhere every 3 minutes it makes a whoosh noise. I don't know how to stop it? I remember it started happening after I deleted some duplicate notes form the note app.
    I restarted the imac but it's still making that noise- also I quite the note app and restarted. the noise is really annoying! Halp!

    **never mind; I think it was iChat lol. (did a little googling) it plays a sound when a buddy logs in/out.. I always used Adium. it's so weird b/c I don't have a buddy list.. this will take some time to get use to. I tried to open the buddy list for ichat but it won't open? errrr.... this isn't very intuitive :|

    Anyways, I'm leaving this for others.. I know other people will have the same issues.
