I, as best as I could quit everything and turned the mac off, seen as it wasn't shutting down, I had to force it too. upon switching back on, I heard the chime, and the noise to tell me I had no new emails but no pop sound and no voice over and no syrinx tweet sound either. I shut off, and did a pram reset to no avail. and upon the pram reset, heard vikki announce, as I have her do so that I have new mail. but still no popping voice over sound. anyone have any ideas. please. I've been searching around on the web and to no avail. is this a apple genius problem? thanks sad mac user what mac are you using?
