To restore the default sounds you'll probably have to go into Control
Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices, then choose the Sounds Tab.
Actually, I prefer not to use Windows defaults. I have only 3 or 4
defaults enabled, if that many. To me, most of the defaults are
For the PasteBoard I use a sound that is supposed to emulate a camera
shutter click, very distinctive, it won't be mistaken for some other action.
I doubt that re-installing NoteTab Pro will do anything for fixing the
sound problem but, NoteTab has a 'Check for Updates' choice under the
It's been so long since I've used it, I'm not absolutely sure how it
works, but, I think if you need an upgrade, you will have a choice to
download the upgrade, if you don't need and upgrade the download choice
won't be there.
If there's still doubt about needing an upgrade go to the following page
and download the upgrade package directly from NoteTab. The address
You install NoteTab over the installed copy, it automatically detects
your registered copy and installs. Shouldn't be any problem but, if
you've altered any of the stock clipbooks, in the Libraries folder, and

downloaded, Nicole's, Eric's and one other from Nicole saying
NoteTab. She has a nice voice and good sounding .wav files. They
are all of her saying something, no sounds of camera shutters,
etc. ;) You'll need to find your bong.wav and configure it.
I have no idea how the sound got messed up, but maybe with
everything you did the path was no longer there to the sound.
Once you find your bong wav you can reconfigure it of course.
Download CSE HTML Validator Lite - it is freeware, does not time
out, etc. and does a good job of validating web pages so that
they work correctly in all browsers. It works directly from
NoteTab's Tool menu and a nice Clipbook Library is made so that
when you click on an error it highlights that line in the HTML
file! Really makes validating HTML pages easy and fast! You can
test it out online and download from my main:
NoteTabbers Assistant Page
You can't miss the online checking form to put in the link to
whatever web page you want. I'm sure you'll at least download the
freeware version once you see the online version work! :)

Have a look at your .ini file it should look like the one below ,if it is
