Hi there,

I hope someone can help...this problem is driving me nuts.

I can hear sound through my speakers when playing tunes through windows media player. I can't however, hear anything through my system (IE if I go onto sound and audio devices in control panel and select event sounds, the play button is unresponsive, yet if I browse, I can play the files in Windows media player) and finally, I cannot hear any sound from the internet. (youtube etc)

I have tried regedit wavemapper etc but that doesn't work. I have check all volumes and everything seems normal but still no sound. I have also uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it. I have also tried reinstalling my flash player

I am running XP with service pack 3. I have a DP35DP board and sigma tel HD audio.

Thanks and I look forward to to some sound advice (excuse the pun!)

Go to Control Panel. Select the Classic View, and double-click on "Internet Options"
Go to the "Advanced" tab
Then scroll down to "Multimedia"
Check the box "Play sounds in webpages"

I may be wrong but I think I had sound problems with Utub videos and it was a flash player problem. I updated and they have been OK since

Although when I try to edit photos on Photobucket it tells me that I need the latest update for FF, when I have it installed , When I try to down load it again in IE it locks IE.

Go to
Start and then to Control Panel
Go to Sounds and Audio Devices
Click on the Sounds Tab at the top
In the Sounds Scheme make sure there is a Scheme chosen and if not Open the Drop Down Menu and pick one.
At the bottom of the window you can pick a sound for exampleExit Windows and then click the Right Arrow to play that sound. If you get sound then you are on your way. :)
Click on Apply and then OK

4. Look for any entries with Yellow Exclamation marks or Red X's

I'm looking for specifically anything under Sound and Audio Devices

Tried that already! No yellow exclaimation marks whatsoever! It's seems as the driver is loaded fine and that everything is in order...but still no sound!
