No sound for anything on the internet, but offline programs work fine

  1. Hi everyone, the title pretty much says it all...If I go to sites such as myspace to listen to music, the player says it's playing, yet there's no sound. When I play something out of iTunes or Media Player though, it works fine and I can hear it.

    I've fiddled with all the settings I can find but can't seem to fix it. I'm pretty sure I'm overlooking something obvious, so i was hoping someone could point me in the direction of the problem.

    Thanks heaps (in advance)!

    Thanks heaps for that, it looks perfect. Problem is, I couldn't find the drivers32 location anywhere...that is, it wasn't in

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

    So I downloaded the general flash no sound registry fix but that doesn't seem to have worked either...does the absence of drivers32 have anything to do with do you think?

    Cheers

    I checked on my computer,and drivers32 is in -

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

    Do you see the subtle difference ? :)

    There also a few more solutions at the bottom of HERE

    ya know I looked and looked everywhere did not find this
    bow s head
    my old seedbox now plays streaming sound
    and no reboot
    I thought it was the stupid cheap video surveillance card
    that stopped it

    Ohhh LEGEND!
    Thanks so much, the msacm32.drv file had been quarantined (I'm currently getting rid of a trojan).

    Thanks again and as a Bob Dylan fan I like your username!
