Hey ya'll, i was just clicking around tonight on my Lombard running OS9.1 with 320 megs of RAM and i was IM'ing and i switched apps, and suddenly, my fonts for the menu's were all in bold!! and i can't change it back to regular, and my sound died on me, no matter how high i turn up the sound, it's always muted, and i can't even unmute it using the shortcut key. Does anyone know what's going on here? Any help would be appreciated! :-)

Ok, the bolding of all text on the system is normal, well sorta. It's a known bug in AIM that AOL has yet to address. That is, IF they ever address it. A restart will fix it right up.

About your problems with sound, I dunno. I have a Pismo and I have never had that problem. Can someone help him out?

Open AppleWorks, then quit it.
Or if its open, hit Apple-Q, then cancel when/if it asks you to save your work.
That'll fix your menus.

As for sound, delete your Sound preferences.

My Pismo had pretty much the same sound problem once. I wasn't running IM or anything, but the sound died when I inserted a DVD movie. When I ejected the movie, re-inserted it, then restarted the DVD player, the sound came back on. I still haven't figured that one out!
