Sound only works for CDs and itunes but not internet (i.e.,utube)

I have tried to adjust the volume through the control panel by acessing sound device but when I get into the drop down box the volume is set to "low" and the area of the box is "grey" so I can't adjust the volume arrow?

    I have the same problem, but I have no clue what a sound card or chipset driver are. And I have no clue how to find said items.

    Check Device Manager and see if your sound devices are still working.

I seemed to have lost my sound just to utube


No sound on YouTube videosIf you don't hear sound on YouTube videos, please try the following steps:
  1. Adjust the volume control on your computer and speakers.
  2. Adjust the volume control located in the lower left corner of the YouTube Video Player.
  3. Restart your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
  4. Ensure that the volume is turned up on other video players, such as Quicktime, Real Player, or Windows Media player, as this might affect the video player sound.
If you still have no sound after trying the steps above, you may want to try the steps below:
  1. Install the latest version of Adobe Flash (necessary for streaming YouTube videos) after removing any old versions you've installed. Learn how to install the most recent version of Adobe Flash player.
  2. Allow third-party Flash content on your computer by visiting the Adobe Flash Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try re-playing the Live Event.
    Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.
  3. Check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third-party Flash content.

I am trying to hook the mic up to my computer in the location for microphones and it is not working. i also tried via my tv and stereo system. it will work to receive sounds if plugged into the phones


Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.
