Hello. This is my first posting so I hope someone can help please.. I am running Win XP Pro. My problem is with no audio from sites like IPlayer and Youtube. I have no problems with other audio. CDs and games play normally. I am using a plantronics switch to change between headphones and speakers. This works perfectly well with the CDs etc. I have checked everything I can think of, latest drivers, sound muted, reinstalling the latest flashplayer etc. but nothing seems to work. This only started a few days ago but I cannot think of anything that has changed to cause it. I have googled my problem which seems to be fairly common but none of the fixes I have tried has worked. Any ideas please?
Thanks for that. When I go into sounds and audio properties I find that it is set to P&P audio device. I change that to C-Media Wave device, click apply then OK. Come out and go back in to see that it has reset itself to P&P. I have unticked the box 'use only default devices' but it still reverts to P&P. Baffled.
Are you sure you have checked your Audio Settings - you can do this via the volume icon on your taskbar or via control panel (Sounds & Audio Devices) but theprocedure is the same.
Right click on your volume icon in taskbar - you should have 2 choices - volume control & adjust audio properties. Choose "adjust audio properties" - Volume Tab - Device Volume set to High - Click "Advanced" Volume slide to High (Top) - Speaker Settings (next to picture of speakers) click on Speaker Volume - slide to High - Advanced Tab - Select Laptop Stereo Speakers ** Remember to click OK at the bottom of each screen **
I don't have a volume control in the task bar despite having ticked the box saying I want it. If I go into 'sounds and audio devices properties' and click audio I don't get an option to 'adjust audio properties' This is where I get this P&P audio device thing which I mentioned above. I am set for desktop stereo speakers and every volume control I have is turned up full. Sorry for late response.
