I rolled back my driver and got sound on my CDs, DVDs, and Windows Media Player. Presto! My speaker icon returned. I now have sound everywhere EXCEPT from the Internet.
My own research indicates that I may be missing a file in my Registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32. I looked there and it is empty.
Here are my qustions:
First, do you feel comfortable offering an opinion whether the solutions offered at either of the following sites might address my problem, i.e., I have NO sound from the Internet.
http://en.kioskea.ne....nd-on-internet (the advice and text offered in the light green box by Allie, on Dec 9, 2008 4:39:35 am GMT)
http://www.mydigital....emapper-trick/ (the three-step process provided under Flash No Sound WaveMapper Solution)
Second, if you are not comfortable giving an opinion whether either of these will work, could you please tell me how to make them happen. I've tried to do both and cannot get the text entered in my Registry @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32.
Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
