    Question Sound problems with Internet only - any solutions?

    Hello!

    Has anyone had problems with not hearing any internet sound? I can use my iTunes and all other such programs, but nothing sounds from the internet at all!

    I've been working with Dell forever on this, but they have not solved the problem. At the most, they were able to get me to be able to hear something on yahoo (this is no longer the case), while I couldn't hear anything on YouTube!

    Weird.

    Meanwhile, what they advise now is wiping my computer. I'd rather not. Any suggestions, troops????

    Thanks so much!

    Hi lori... All I can think of is that you need to check your browser.. addons..and make sure that your browser is enabled to play music..and that your computer internet options.. has a music player enabled... It's a bit of a hassle to deal with but once done ..it's done and working.... Doug

    Thanks Doug, but I've already tried all of that. Thanks for taking the time to answer, though. I appreciate it!

    Whats your default media player? Try making it windows media player or real player. If you can hear every thing else, im guessing its a compatiblility issue. Check Itunes for issues with their requirements, and make sure your windows/explorer updates are current.

    I'll have to figure out how to try making the default Windows Media Player. I'll "report back" once I've done so! Thanks, Karen!

    You may try this if you havn't already:

    Control Panel
    Sounds and Audio Devices
    Properties
    Speaker Volume
    Restore Defaults (check)
    make sure 'mute' is NOT selected
    Advanced
    Options
    Properties - check all boxes

    Hi... Try setting Quick Time as your default player. i.e. mp3 player I found that when I had media player and real player on my computer .. I had lots of problems... so I dumped real player .. and set Quick Time as default player... it seems to work well with Media player...Hope that helps... Doug

    Does it mean anything to anyone that on my Volume Control the "Input Monitor" is grayed out? Could that have anything to do with anything?

    Hi lori... If the input monitor is dithered (grayed out) it means that your volume control is not available to use.. and yes that could be the reason why you are not hearing anything...Be sure to go into your computer settings and turn it on or connect it... Doug

    Try reinstalling your Internet Explorer without all the add-ons and see if it works.

    That is not a viable suggestion.

    It is obvious that the level of "computerese" Lori demonstrates is such that she has not utilized any plug-ins or "add-ons" to IE or any other utility.....re-installing IE is a larger can or worms altogether.



    I am personally more inclined to think you are simply posting for the sake of posting, after viewing all your other recent "contributions".......
