    i noticed that when i change the volume with the f11 and f12 keys i used to get little blips, but now theyve gone. i think i turned them off somewhere, but i want them back again, but i cant remember where i did it :p

    It is done in the sound fx tab of sound in System Preferences. Check the "Play feedback volume" box

    Do you have something plugged into the headphone jack?
