I came here via a search as I was experiencing exactly the same issue and tried all the steps suggested to Clay Freeman with the same results. What worked for me was going into Systems Preferences / Sound, where I noticed that the slider for Alert Volume was at its leftmost setting. Sliding that to the right resolved the problem.
