For a while now I've not been able to hear anything at all if I try viewing any video content online. My volume on everything else is fine - I can play CD's and DVD's as normal and aslo listen to iTunes and Limewire etc but if I want to listen to anything that involves streaming at all - nada. Nowt. It's driving me insane! I've tried downloading FP9 and also Realplayer (again), just in case and done a full restart each time but to no avail.

Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbsup:

You have software problems that's causing this, and what you listed as what you're using, (especially Limewire), I would recommend you to do a complete virus scan.

iTunes, I'd uninstall that one for sure.
RealPlayer, QuickTime, Windows Media Player, I'd stop using them and use the alternative players from FREE Codecs http://www.free-codecs.com . They have players that play all of the mentioned programs' file types. They're smaller, and cleaner. and they're FREE.

As far as the Limewire is concerned, I hope you're using some type of ip blocking tool, like PeerGuardian 2 http://methlabs.org or a similar program. If not, you can't stop or see all of the ip's connecting to your computer at any given time. Don't ever p2p without some type of ip blocking protection.

Recap..... one or more of those mentioned programs is likely to be the culprit, but at the same time, Limewire could have given you a lamewire (computer infection).

Since this problem is only happening while streaming, then you may need to uninstall that program you're having problems with, then try an alternative one, or reinstall it again and hope it works.
