Hi, I'm new here and I really need some help. For some reason I can't get any sound from web pages. My speakers are working fine on other things, music and such. It's just when I try to look at something on the web (like utube) that I don't get any sound. I am running xp.
Please, can someone help me???????????
Thanks heaps.

There are a great number of fixes for this problem, which is really a lot of problems. First, are you using Internet Explorer? Try going to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced Tab and under Multimedia make sure Play Sounds is checked.

You can also try re-installing flash.

You can try this bit (from here):

To hear sound while viewing web pages with audio:

1.Click Start, and then Control Panel.
2.Click Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices and then Sounds and Audio Devices.
3.Click the Sounds tab.
4.In the Program events list, find and select Windows Explorer.
5.Select Complete Navigation and set " sounds" to " notify.wav"
6.Start Navigation and set the " sounds" to " Windows XP Start.wav"
7.Click OK.
