Both firefox and IE just recently stopped playing audio on videos. The video plays fine but there is no audio. I've done some searching but had no luck - checked the volume icon on the tray, checked the internet options, tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash... no luck.

Any ideas?

There are no exclamation points, but there are yellow question marks beside "Other devices" and beside the two things under it, "multimedia audio controller" and "RAID controller."

Is your computer set up for RAID? The other would be your sound driver. What is the make and model of your computer and/or sound card?

The sound card is pretty old - it's a "creative sound blaster live" card. The computer itself is a mishmash. ABIT motherboard, athlon processor. I run windows XP on it.

Audio worked fine until a couple weeks ago, when it suddenly stopped working for firefox and IE. I've had no problems with the audio on any other applications.

I just realized that i don't have sound in winamp, either -- but I do have sound with VLC media player and with Samsung Media Studio.
