My Win7 machine has lost its sound and part of its sight and I'm at a loss on resolving it. On-line video from utube to even the ads and yahoo news clips are all affected. The video will play for about 8 seconds and freezes and there is no sound at all. I've cleared caches, reinstalled Flash player and Java, reset items in the control panel, all with no effect on the problem. Both sight and sound are fine with downloaded and DVD content and that is true with Win player, Win Media player, Quicktime and Realplayer.
That leads me to think its Java or Flashplayer causing the problem, but I have no other ideas on how to solve the problem. Any thoughts anyone?
