All of a sudden I don't get any sound while on youtube...etc. I can listen to Media Player and it works just fine but nothing when I am browsing. I also have the same problem on game sites. Is there a way to fix this? I have checked to make sure that nothing is muted.....pls help



TIA

I wouldn't trust Java to update itself correctly. What version shows up in Add and Remove Programs under Control Panel?

It means you don't have the latest one.

Uninstall all three of the ones you have then go here and download Version 6 (it's the fourth one down).

Check the Device Manager for any errors related to your sound.
