I'm running XP SP3. If I play mp3 tracks through WMP all is well and I get full sound. However when I'm on the Internet (browser independent) I can't get any sound from websites. I've checked Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices and all the selections are correct.
My Audio Controller is a SiS7012 and the AC97 codec is ALC203. Device Manager reports all OK and a RealTek AC97 device.
I have the latest drivers installed and all the relevant sliders are set to maximum (just in case!). Nothing is muted. WMP output is fine (and loud). My soundcard is the only one listed so no other options avilable. Very odd!
I'm going to try installinb a VoIP phone as that will generate an extra soundcard to try.........and I did but still no output via my speakers or a headset, except from WMP.
brundle - done that (ie uninstalled then installed the latest version). Still not working. After I uninstalled then IE7 did report I couldn't run the site because Flash Player was missing - so I installed it. Now the site ignores Flash Player (so is it installed?) but doesn't produce sound!
Incidentally if you run several browsers like IE7, Firefox and Opera which version of the Flash Player do you install?
brundle - I tried the Flash web Manager and one of their suggestions was to run the K-Lite Codec Tweak Tool. I downloaded and ran it (very small) then chose what looked like the likely parameters. Problem solved. Looks like a broken codec.
Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
