    this is the exact procedure of how to do ,click the link directly.

    but for your help
    if you find thid instructions bit hard 
    then its advisable you just call a local computer hardware engineer at your place and get the windows setup reinstalled.its just a 2 hour job.and the engineer will just load the software nothing the cost will be negligible .as no part is faulty.

    this will help.

I cannot hear the videos on you tube anymore

If 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 have problem with my youtube, videos are not playing.. pls help!

Make sure that your flash player is installed. You can go to and click on adobe flash player.

If you're using a 64 bit browser, make sure that you use the 32 bit internet explorer instead of the 64 bit internet explorer (If you click on start > all programs, you will see 2 internet explorers, a 32 bit and a 64 bit).

Let me know if this helps :)
