    Whenever I play a online video such as Youtube I can't here the sound. I've checked all the settings in the volume control panel and all looks good. I can here sound fine when I play songs in Windows media player or when I play a DVD. I've tried rebooting the computer but that dosen't help either. Not sure where to look next. Any suggestions?

    Do you have the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player 10.0.22.87? For Internet Explorer, click here.

    For non-Internet Explorer, click here.

    If you do have Flash, uninstall it completely with this uninstaller, then reinstall it.

    I'm using firefox. I didn't have the latest version of Flash player, so I uninstalled it and installed the newest version. Still no sound. I did it also for IE with the same results. I noticed when I play a video i get a little static in my speakers during the video.

    You could try updating your sound card driver.

    1. Click "Start".

    3. Type: sndvol32
    4. Click "OK".
    5. Make sure the following are not muted and the volume is up for "Volume Control" and "Wave".
