Hi,

 

I hope I have posted this in the correct section as I'm not quite sure what the problem is - flash problem or sound card problem or both?

 

When I attempt to play videos (YouTube, new sites, streaming etc.) it either plays without audio or doesn't play at all (loads but when I press play, it stays at 0.00). 

 

The problem does not appear to be restricted to a particular type of browser - occurs in both Chrome and Firefox.

 

It also appears now that I have a problem with all sound on my laptop e.g. when I attempt to use Spotify, it states 'there is a problem with your sound card'?

 

However, sometimes when I restart my laptop, everything works fine for a short period of time.

 

Operating system - Windows 8

 

Laptop - Samsung Notebook

 

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi marils :)

Let's try with the most simple solution in this case, re-installing the sound card drivers to make sure that you have to right, up to date and working drivers for your sound card. However for that, I need to know what edition and version of Windows you are running, as well as knowing your exact computer/laptop brand and model. Can you provide me these information please ?

I tried the Microsoft Fix it Solutions Centre option but it wouldn't run.

 

I am running Windows 8 and my laptop is a Samusung NP900X4C.

Are you running Windows 8 32 or 64-bits ?
