I can't get any sound using firefox or IE but for files I download and play using media player the sound works fine. Also, I can not see the sound icon in the right corner by the clock that used to be there.

I have seen other topics on this and checked the registry editor and wavemapper is already there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Download no_sound_in_browsers.reg file to your desktop.
Double click on it, and allow registry merge.
Restart computer.

Just tried that and no luck.

Having looked at similar topics I typed sndvol32 into the run command and received a message saying no active mixer devices are available I have checked in device manager and there doesn't seem to be a problem with any of the audio devices- I don't know whether this is relevant? I have also tried reinstalling flash.

No I don't think so I had turned them off just tried turning them on and not getting anything. I have noticed that under the sound and audio box from the control panel, looking at the volume tab it says there is no audio device however the hardware tab says everything is working properly.

I think, the sound chip is going south.
Is it laptop, or desktop?

I'd buy cheap sound card (starting at ~$15), and see, if it works.

You can try Windows repair: http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html, or you can try to reinstall Windows: http://www.michaelst...nxpinstall.html, or you can buy cheap card.
