Hi John

Spoke to a new support Queue called "Qresolve" yesterday regarding a similar kind of issue with my comp.They were pretty helpful(you can visit them at www.qresolve.com).The resolution they gave me and which worked for me instantly was..,

To hear sound while viewing web pages with audio:

1.Click Start, and then Control Panel.
2.Click Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices and then Sounds and Audio Devices.
3.Click the Sounds tab.
4.In the Program events list, find and select Windows Explorer.
5.Select Complete Navigation and set " sounds" to " notify.wav"
6.Start Navigation and set the " sounds" to " Windows XP Start.wav"
7.Click OK.

Make sure that your PC audio is working and volume controls on the PC and speakers are set properly.

regards,
Sid

I am experiencing this same issue, no audio on web pages that should have audio. Whether I use Firefox or IE 6, no audio on either browser. My audio stopped working on the web after I installed Windows Media Player 11. I since rolled back to 10 but my audio still doesnt work on the web. It works in Media Player and any other app but just not Mozilla or IE. I have re-installed my audio driver numerous times and dont know what else to do. Please help me.

Yes. My audio was fine before the Media Player 11 upgrade. That is the only thing that changed.

I double-checked that option and it is checked. I have no clue what is wrong...

Before you do that maybe uninstall and reinstall it. Might have a corupted file. And is that doesnt work do what Blackmirror says, system restore should work.
