Hiya everyone! I am having some issues with the sound on my computer. If I open musicmatch or itunes I can play files and I hear sound. I can hear all of the system sounds, sounds in games and on some websites like pogo. If I go into myspace, cmt, sony musicbox, youtube or any site like that, I have no sound. I fixed it one time but I can not remember how I did it. Thanks in advance!

Quoted from here:

Yay I fixed it thanks for the suggestions.

here is how it was a posting on an adobe fourm I found about 6 pages deep on the google search for no sound from youtube:

Alright the problem is really the mapping of wavemapper in Windows registry as reported by one member of the forum. All you need to do is to open registry editor by going to Start menu, Run, typing regedit and then Enter. After that, in the registry editor, walk yourself through the tree in the left pane, till you reach

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

And then on the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter "wavemapper" (without quots of course), ENTER, type "msacm32.drv", ENTER.

Close the editor. No need to restart. Video on Google and YouTube et al would work fine now.

Thanks to the member who pointed out the key. I just mentioned the procedure.

What media player are you using? Try to look in one of the menus to what files are being supported by the player and enable all of them.

Thanks everyone for your help. I got irritated with the situation and I just decided to finally upgrade my computer to Vista. That got rid of the problem. :)

Hi! I am having this same problem. When i walk through the steps outlined above I get an error message when I click on String Value. It says: Cannot Creat Value:Error Writing to the Registry.

I recently removed a virus could this have anything to do with it! Any suggestions would be appreciated! I am so sick of trying to fix this!!!!!!!! :)

I am about at wits end here. I have the same problem, I have installed a new driver, I have tried K - Lite, I have tried the registry editing spoken of previously and I get:

"The registry editor cannot rename New Value #1. The specified value name already exists. Type another name and try again."

Also, when I go to my Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio > Sounds and Audio > Sounds Tab, the Sound Scheme is set to Windows Default, but at the bottom, there is an option to play the sound that is chosen, but it is greyed out an uninteractable. I just noticed this while reading this post and I have no idea if it is helpful knowledge or not.

There is no start up music when I restart my computer. It has been about 2 weeks now that I have been scouring the internet trying to fix this problem.

I appreciate any help!

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
