    If I play a sound file on my PC or a CD that works fine but there is no audio coming through my speakers for any website using any browser. I am running windows 10 and have tried installing the appropriate drivers. My headphones which connect to the PC via USB do work. Any ideas please?

    Right click Sound icon. Do you see something like Open Volume mixer? If so, click that and under applications make sure the sound is not muted for the browser.

    Thanks for that. I checked and the sound is not muted but for some reason, just for the Internet and not for other sources, it is coming through very faintly although the level is set at maximum.

    In Windows 7, if you click on the speaker you see the main volume. Under that is the mixer link which opens the individual volume controls (and the browser can be a seperate control). There could be additional options in the audio drivers. Which, as you are using a USB headset, will be the USB headset drivers/software (not the standard audio chipset). You may also want to enter the Windows audio config and ensure the headset is selected as the default output device.
