    Without some basic information like what your computer is and what version of Windows you're running the answer quite simply is no we cannot help. We are not clairvoyant.

    So what you're saying is that you can hear audio when using WMP, but when watching video or audio online (youtube as an example) you don't hear anything? In that case try another browser or reinstall the drivers for your soundcard.

    thanks for your reply jesse_hz i tried reinstalling the drivers but it is still the same, the soundcard is built in to the motherboard and worked for a short while. could you recommend a decent browser?

    Try Opera or Firefox. If they don't work, then I really don't know what to do then. Can you get audio in other applications like games?
