Sorry without reading it all again, have you tried Firefox and Internet Explorer 7
how about instaling firefox as your web browser?
i fixed this kind of issue installing firefox,when done,
Internet Explorer is as well already working.
EDIT: sorry Kimsland,you got in first before i clicked post quick reply.
tired them both, prefer firefox to IE since in my opinion using IE is akin to putting your hand in a blender.
Firewall off ? Then test
Actually you could have a bug/virus (I'd even temporarily turn this off too)
Have you done a full scan (using the normal free Ad-Aware and Spybots etc)
Plus a full AntiVirus?
Another option is setting all security zones to defaut in your browser.
Actually I wonder what starts with your computer (ie spam control or something)
You can try Startup control panel for that (deselect everything on every tab - for a test) then restart and test
I'd be interested if that one worked.
Lastly you could try sfc /scannow (Start-Run) this checks all Windows files are intact (without hurting anything) Network should be out, and firewall off, also you may require your Windows CD, and it takes about an hour to do
Please try each of those (actually in order) but I do like the startup one.
i tired to turn off the firewall and got a error message saying "Due to a unidentified problem, Windows can not display Windows Firewall settings"
so a chance that might be the problem, which in turn gives me a new problem lol.
i checked and it says security center isnt even enabled
When you install a 3rd party firewall (basically all of us!)
It disables the Windows firewall (in Start->Run>services.msc)
Just disregard this, and continue to test
Also if you deselect everything in Startup Control Panel and then reboot, you'll get another error Antivirus not installed (again ok for testing)
To disable all these messages (if you ever turn off firewall etc) just go to Control Panel -Security Center --> "Change the way Security Center alerts me" and deselect all ticks.
Anyway continue on, and report back with "Sounds now working ! (Optimistically speaking)
Just reinstall XP and all its updates and use IE7. Firefox does not usually cause any porblems, but IE7 works better if you do all the Windows Updates
ok this is just strange, as a goof i decided to try and play it using RealPlayer itself using it's browser and for some reason im getting video AND Audio with it, but still nothing with IE or Firefox.........that make sense to anyone?
I'd uninstall RealPlayer and test again (may be conflicting)
Also no reply about other options I asked!
How old is this system?
like i said not my computer so no idea how old it is, and ive tried the other options and no help at all
This PC was built in late 2001... This makes the system VERY old. Is XP updated to SP2?
HP Pavilion 503n
Probably never had a clean install since then either!
I believe that it would be much easier to backup any data, and reinstall your Windows (SP1) and then update to SP2 and then install all your drivers and MS security updates.
Can take a while (~4Hrs all up) but after this many years, there could be any number of issues, even a low level format (including removing the partition before install) would be advisable.
Also this is where putting your System Specs in your Profile does help

Even if it is not his computer... I thought I recognized the model. I just worked on one. It had Windows 2000 installed. I installed XP Pro, SP2. I just bet that SP2 is not installed, and
