Recently my browser doesn't play the sound when playing a video. It doesn't matter if it's flash, adds or whatever. When researching this I have noticed 2 weird things. 1) the sound icon has disappeared from the process bar and 2) in Control Panel/Sound/Sound units under MIDI-player the field is empty, I can choose Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth, but when I open the sound properties again the field is empty again.

Other relevant info: Windows XP, IE 6.0, all other sound units work fine: WMP, Itunes and so on (off course playing local sound files or movies)

I hope you can help me

Addition: I have just found out that Skype doesn't work either. It will not let me make calls because there is problems with my sound unit. I live abroad so Skype and the Internet are my life lines!

Go to "eventviewer"(START RUN type eventvwr) and look under application or system for any red crosses and post them here to find out what is causing this Posted Image to BC BTW :thumbsup:
