Although I can hear a *click* when pressing "play" to start the game, I do not have any ingame sounds at all. No *clicks*, no voices, nothing. Is anyone out there with an idea how to fix that issue? Thanks in advance!
Edit (additional information):
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
Installer: BG:EE Standalone Installer
Sound Card: I guess it's an onboard Realtek
It's not clear yet what exactly causes the sound problem. A missing file (OpenAL) might be the reason for the missing ingame sound. Possible solutions:
download the file: oalinst
unzip, install, blah blah blah
try running baldur's gate again. i did, and had sound!

ii) Download and install this file: http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/oalinst.zip

iii) FOR WIN XP:
"Start > Run > dxdiag
Slid the "Hardware Sound Acceleration Level" down the to minimum setting ("No acceleration")." (reported by @RomulanPaladin)
iv) FOR WIN 7 and 8:
"1. Go into device manager.
2. Select the X-Fi device under "Sound, ... controllers".
3. Update driver.
4. "Browse my computer..."
5. "Let me pick..."
6. "High Definition Audio Device"." (reported by @Kruno)
v) Re-install BG:EE with beamdog client (no need to remove the standalone version). Start BG:EE with the beamdog client and install OpenAL by doing so. Quit BG:EE, start the standalone and make sure you have ingames sounds now. (reported by @Arktosa)
Please let me know if one of the above suggestions helped you!
