So I've had this problem with my sound for the longest time, but have only just recently regained internets. Nobody has been able to help me before with this; but I can't go through life without sound. The thing is, any video I've downloaded and all of my programs have fine working sound, so it's not my sound card. I downloaded all the newest drivers for everything I could think of; doesn't fix it. Most often I get sound when I go to ytmnd.com, but I'd really love to be able to hear video and flash, too. My information is:

Microsoft Windows XP
Professional
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+
2.21 GHz, 1 GB of RAM

Any other info you need, just ask.. please, somebody help me get my sound back.

I am sorry buddy but couldn't understand clearly. You are able to hear sound when you visit a particular website and are unable to hear it with videos?
Is that what you meant? Are you sure with the drivers installed in your system that nothing related to sound is missing?

So you do not hear sound in flash videos (like on youtube)?
Have you tried clearing browser cache and other private data?
Did you try another browser like Firefox?
Did you try uninstalling Adobe Flash and re-installing it again?

Mmmmkay I guess I wasn't as clear as I thought before.

All of my programs which use sound work properly. Any video I download from the internet works properly. However, if I try and watch anything in a browser (and yes, I have tried so many browsers), there is a 99% chance it won't work. It doesn't make sense to me, but this is how it is. I can't hear flash movies, nor quicktime or any other kind you can think of. Sometimes I can hear sound from ytmnd.com, for some reason. I'm not sure about anything that has to do with drivers missing or anything, but I did download the newest drivers for all of the pieces of my rig that I could think of.

It might help keep our focus to just pick on one browser at a time.

I think most folks are partial to Firefox and IE in that order, so I suggest we start with Firefox and fix that.

Tell us your Firefox version.

Here is a link from Mozilla (the Firefox people) with some troublshooting methods I found by doing a Google search of "firefox no sound", and there is a message there from Bo (with 13,740 alleged posts), therefore Bo has instant credibility over my measly posting volume :thumbsup:, and it sounds kinda like your situation.

Bo has some good ideas that if it was me, I would try them, but then that thread seems to deteriorate a bit with registry changes and a System Restore and what not, so I would just try the Bo post and leave the rest as pleasant reading and FYE.

Hmm I've updated my firefox version, the flash player, and went over my plugins.. nothing seems to be working :thumbsup: I've got the most recent versions of everything now, and I'm still sans aural pleasure.

Well darn.

I did another Google search for firefox no sound (you can too) and found other links where IE and FF could not play stuff from the Flash player:

http://www.devhardware.com/forums/software...-ie-102939.html

and

http://www.afad.nl/alternate/2008/09/04/no...tube-firefox-3/

Look at the part about 4 speakers if that applies to you.

Another same registry load/fix of the same:

http://forums.techguy.org/web-email/559748...ox-2-0-0-a.html

It goes back to that registry thing again...

The registry idea I might try next (but that is just me) of course after exporting my current stuff and it could make sense in that these people had no sound with things like youtube and IE or FF but other sound things seems to work fine. The suggestion is a system wide thing - not specific to one browser so perhaps it would fix the problem with both.

You can also use Device Manager to check your sound drivers against the latest on the manufacturers WWW site - a good check since this would also be a system wide thing effecting all browsers and we would not want to be embarrassed about not checking it later. Do you need help with that?

I'm not jumping ship, but I don't have your problem and there does not seem to be a single magic bullet solution. I can only offer the things I would try and make some sense to me! If I did have this problem, I would be compelled to figure it out.

Are you able to do some Googling of your own and see what you can come up with - maybe the magic bullet?

So I tried the registry thing, it didn't work.. I did however discover this site,
http://www.digyourowngrave.com/the-five-st...e-in-quicksand/ for which the sound works.. I'm trying a few things and I'll let you know how that turns out, but this really is stumping me here. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I yearn for sound again.

That's indeed a strange problem :thumbsup:
Maybe one of the steps from here might help?
