    Default Sound gets muted, dock degraded

    Hello,
    The last few times I start up my (recently installed Mac OS X) System I
    see the following behavior:

    The first time I click on something with the cursor or I type something*
    I hear a clicking sound and a transparent sound icon appears on screen,
    after that sound is muted. and some of the behaviors of the dock stop
    working. Processes I activate after that don't have a animated startup
    icon in the dock and don't get the triangle widget to indicate they are
    active. I can unmute the sound in the sound panel but the dock remains
    degraded.

    Anybody have an I idea what is causing this behavior? What can I do
    about it?

    What is the usual way to troubleshoot something like this in Mac OS X?
    Are there some prefs I can trash? Any help appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Steven


    * typically this is when I enter my login name, but when log in I
    automatically it is when I first type something in an application.

    Looks like I solved this problem by zapping the PRAM
