To any and all who would are willing...
I am not able to hear any audio whatsoever through either internet explorer or firefox...both are the most up to date versions and all plugins (flash etc...) are also current and up to date. The problem occurred when I installed a codec package, supposedly an end all be all solution to codec issues...turned out not to be the case. Anyway, upon discovering that I had lost audio support in my web browsers, I uninstalled the codec pack immediately, but the problem remains. I am however able to hear audio through any media players (winamp, wmp etc...), or other programs that require audio on my comp which are not a web browser. In fact the only way I can hear audio through my browser is when it initializes wmp, quicktime etc... to play video online. Youtube or anything similar will not play audio...I get video just fine...but no sound.
An intractable problem? Perhaps...and I am willing to format if absolutely necessary, but would much rather avoid it. Does anybody have any ideas, advice, words of wisdom? Anything would be most welcome at this point...thanks in advance.
