I just spent a lot of time on the am I infected forum cleaning up some infections that I had. I am clean now (the person who helped me said so) but in the process of cleaning my computer, I encountered a new problem: no system sound.The person who helped me did not know how to fix this, so he suggested I go to the vista forum to get specialized help.
Here is what has happened:
-I get no system sounds i.e. no startup sounds etc. I manually tried to open the .wav files in the media folder in windows and I got an error saying the file could not be opened.
- I also do not get any sound from onlline video sites like Youtube.
-However, I am able to play songs and other music through media player.
I have done many obvious things to correct this:
-Made sure computer was not on mute
-Installed latest Flash player version
-Tried different browsers (Chrome, IE8 and Firefox)
-Reinstalled my Realtek audio drivers
But nothing seems to work.
Here is my system information:
- HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop
-Windows Vista Home premium SP2
Can somebody help me?Thanks!
