Some of the sound effects in my games arent working, such as spell sounds, bullet sounds, shooting sounds.

music works fine.

i have a msi mpower mobo, with realteck audio HD.

I also have something called THX TruStudio pro, which came with the mobo driver cd.

My first guess would be that you have your sound card is set for surround (5.1ch / 7.1ch) and you only have 2ch speakers attached. You can fix that by selecting stereo for your speakers.

My second guess is that you've got something mucked up in your registry that is limiting the number of simultaneous voices: which ought to be fixed by completely uninstalling and reinstalling your sound card. Be sure to use the drivers from your motherboard website and not directly from Realtek in case MSI did something custom with the implementation.
