|I don't have any sound when viewing Youtube on IE or Firefox or when XP starts up. Was working fine until I did an XP update then sound disappeared (before the Microsoft cut-off date). |
I still get beeps from the X31 Thinkpad though, just no sound with Youtube or XP on start up for example.
By the way Youtube is lagging too since the win xp update -it wasn't before my sound problems.
I updated all the drivers for my laptop from the manufacturers site but to no avail.
I have the latest Flash installed.
Installed Shockwave too
Direct X installed - didn't make a difference. I think its something to do with the windows xp update cause after that my laptop got stuffed up, Youtube slowed and Soundmax drivers kept disappearing and reappearing.
Not sure why I can''t see the line in opetion under Volume controls either, it was there after the sp3 update but
seems to have disappeared.
I tried the regedit trick for audio whereby you trick windows into thinking it's service pack 2 (I'm on service pack 3, XP). Also checked Device Manager under audio, no ! marks beside the audio. I tried CCleaner as well. I disabled the video accelerator under settings in Youtube video as well I don't have many 3rd party programs installed on thee laptop eg no iTunes, no Skype either.
At the moment I can see the volume control (except line in) and Youtube is smooth, and the sound card is installed
under device manager, but still no sound for youtube or XP start up or IE/Firefox
Can some one help me please?
Thanks in advance
