I have a 13" mid 2012 MacBook Pro. I am not getting any sound on increasing/decreasing volume and on mouse clicks.

The MacBook has suddenly stopped making those click sounds and the volume button doesn't make that sound as well. My speakers are fine. I have recently upgraded my RAM.

What could possibly the issue be?

    Welcome to Ask Different :) Can you please go to System Preferences → Sound → Sound Effects and check if Play feedback when volume is changed settings is enabled.

  • Also, please specify the version of macOS running on your MacBook Pro.

  • I'm using MacOS Mojave 10.14.3 Feb 23 '19 at 13:52
  • Did you manage to check the setting as mentioned in the first comment?

  • Yes, I did. There's a different sound coming, not what used to come before. Is this because the sound is updated? Feb 25 '19 at 5:38

Go to System Preferences → Sound → Sound Effects and make sure Play user interface sound effects and Play feedback when volume is changed are checked.

The sound clip played back when increasing/decreasing volume has been changed starting with OS X Yosemite and, thus, you will find it different from earlier versions of macOS.

  • This was my problem & solution. Thanks. Does anyone know why my Mac decided to shut this feature off without my permission? Some strange shortcut accidentally pressed? I've used this feature several times a day for the past 6 years. yesterday
