I use Google Chrome as my main browser and hold IE in reserve. I've just noticed that I am not receiving any sound when I use Chrome. If I switch over to IE the sound comes through fine.

Can you please advise how to get Chrome to permit sound.

If I go onto Amazon and try listening to a sample from a CD nothing comes through. Just tried to watch a BT video clip and no sound on Chrom, but fine on IE. No sound effects on Sim City on Facebook.

Did a google search and it looks like a known problem. Off to look some more to see if I can find a solution. Will report back if I do.

Hi - I've downloaded the file you recommended Sea Urchin. I've been into Chrome plug ins and Flash must be enabled because the only thing I can see for it is to disable it.

Still no sound.

Other than Firefox does anyone have suggestions for an alternative browser?

Read that article Woolwell. I have 4.1 speaker system but dont want to go messing about with settings. Think I shall just have to revert to IE until the bug is sorted out.

Hello and good morning. Although I only have 4.1 speakers, your suggestion to set it to 5.1 worked. I now have sound on Google Chrome.

Many thanks, especially Woolwell.

To test if flash is installed go to

www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

This will test Shockwave and Flash and show the versions installed.
