Well I'm not giving up yet...
Flash Player sites have no sound
Posted 18 October 2005 - 03:22 AM
Have you looked at default playback devices
Click start then control panel, sounds and audio then sounds and audio devices
Suddenly realised (as I have them turned off normally-they irritate me
) that I don't seem to have system sounds either. I've checked what you suggested above, and all my audio devices are working fine. Could this be another clue?
Does anyone have any ideas on this one?

Download Everest Home Edition
Run it, click + next to computer then summary, look on right for multimedia / audio adapter
Visit the manufacturer's site for a suitable driver and any available software
Please set a system restore point before you install anything
If you are unable to find anything, or are unsure if the files are correct, post the make and model here before you download anything

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar, after the bar goes, reboot.
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should
If no change
Please go here to repair your operating system
Use the last one - Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method
Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system
After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates

Will try the later suggestions and see how it goes.

/f : Fixes errors on the disk. The disk must be locked. If chkdsk cannot lock the drive, a message appears that asks you if you want to check the drive the next time you restart the computer.
/v : Displays the name of each file in every directory as the disk is checked.
/r : Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. The disk must be locked.
/x : Use with NTFS only. Forces the volume to dismount first, if necessary. All open handles to the drive are invalidated. /x also includes the functionality of /f.
/i : Use with NTFS only. Performs a less vigorous check of index entries, reducing the amount of time needed to run chkdsk.
/c : Use with NTFS only. Skips the checking of cycles within the folder structure, reducing the amount of time needed to run chkdsk.
/l : Use with NTFS only. Changes the log file size to the size you type. If you omit the size parameter, /l displays the current size.
/?: Displays help at the command prompt.

Start > Programs > K-Lite Codec Pack > Configuration > Codec Tweak Tool
Then check the box next to [Registry] Fix non-working system sound
It should fix the problem (Did for several of us)
