    # No sound in Windows Vista / 7:
    In some cases, Vista mutes Songbird. Open Songbird, then left click the sound icon in the task bar, select ‘Mixer’ to see if Vista muted Songbird.

    That was the problem in my case, after all. Stupid Vista. After one simple click, everything works perfectly fine again.
