Minecraft no sound problem [how to fix] Windows 7

I had a problem with no sound in Minecraft. It was very hard for me to find the solution on the internet, so I will post how I did here. This might work for you if your game crashes when you try to enable sound in game.

1. Download OpenAL from CreativeLabs

2. Go to Minecraft folder, press Start > Run and type in %appdata%/.minecraft/

3. Open bin > natives and delete the OpenAL32.dll file, also delete the other OpenAL64.dll (i think) file, just to be sure.

4. Go to C:/Windows/System32 and copy the OpenAL32.dll from System32 folder to %appdata%/.minecraft/bin/natives/

5. Now you have replaced the Minecraft OpenAL32.dll with the new OpenAL32.dll, open Minecraft and go to options and enable sound. This should work now. :-)
