No sound when I play BBC i Player/Radio etc.what to do?
I've checked Sound,Audio & speech from control panel, says there is no device, was trying to see if "Mute" was on,all to no avail. Think I've installed "Adobe Flash Player",is this necessary to get sounds plus does one need to install Active x",if so how.
Our computer was out of action for a while but prior that we got sound.
Do we need to deploy the disc that came with our ISP Package?
Hope you can help

Re: no sound when I play BBC i Player/Radio etc.what to...
We cannot yet tell if the issue is software or hardware related. Do you get sound from any apps? If not, verify that the device and drivers are working properly. Are your speakers built in or external? If built-in, and no sound comes from any apps, your sound card may be bad, or drivers need reinstalling. Check the driver status using Device Manager. If the speakers were/are external, be sure that they are securely pluged into the correct port - speaker and not microphone jack, for example - common mistake. Be sure that the power supply for the external speakers is working. Do you have a status light on them to verify if they have power? My suggestion would be to try another pair of speaker if you have them. Even if you used internal speakers in the past, external may work fine as a work-around. Hope this helps. DigiChick

Then there is a dialog jump out and click to the voice tab, then click Test hardware at the bottom. And following the prompts steps to finish the test, after that the problem almost will be solved besides there is a hardware error
Hit Ctrl,Alt and Delete all at the same time> Windows Task Manager should open> Click on the "Applications Tab"> Click End Task to close all Apps.> Now go to your Cd/Dvd player hit the eject button on the front.> Remove CD.
Now for your device problem try this:
To specify your preferred audio devices for playback or recording in Windows, do the following:
Windows 98, 98se, ME:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Multimedia or Sounds and Multimedia.
2. On the Audio tab, select the devices you want in the Preferred Device boxes.
3. Click the Use Preferred Devices Only check box to select it.
4. Click OK.
Windows 2000 and XP:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Sounds and Audio Devices.
2. On the Audio tab, select the devices you want in the Default Device boxes.
3. Click the Use only default devices check box to select it.
4. Click OK.
1. Go to Start > Control Panel
2. In Control Panel, select the option that says Hardware and Sound
3. Under the listing for Sound, select Manage Audio Devices
4. Under Recording and Sounds tabs, you will find all available devices. To set a default device, right click on one of them and select Set as Default Device.
Windows should now be configured to use these devices for both playback and recording.
This should fix your problem, if not use link to go to Sony support. Use the E-Mail option for a faster solution.
hello.... 1 - r u facing NO Audio/Sound issue...? 2 - is ur Volume Control not responding ? 3 - is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ? 4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?
if ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....and no file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…. Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service. www+sureshayyar+110mb+com Copy the above address in the browser, replace + with dots...all the best
Do this in steps to insure you are trying the correct solution. 1st) Double Click on My Computer and Double Click on Control Panel. 2nd) Double Click on Sounds and Audio Devices. 3rd) Select Audio tab at the top of the dialog box. 4th) Select Sound playback "Volume button" to check if any options have the mute box checked and if so un-check the box. This is where to start. after this is done go to the help of the Media player and determine the revision level and include that in the request information. Good luck for a quick fix.
I had exactly the same problem and solved it by updating the drivers for the USB sound/audio device.
My XP version is in Swedish so I´m not sure what it says in English, but it should say something like the following.
Go to the "Device manager" by right clicking on "This computer" and choosing "Properties", locate the "USB sound/audio device" under the "Sound, Video and Game"-category and right click and chose "Update drivers". Then chose "Search for drivers on the internet" and chose "Recommended installation". My new drivers are called "USB EMP Audio Device". They work perfectly.
I wasn´t able to update the actual EasyCap video adapter, but it doesn´t seem to matter if you´re having problems with the sound. Although I can´t use an S-videocable, only a videocable, otherwise the picture turns black and white.
FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports. If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations. (If you hear sound from other devises such as plating a CD of the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.) If this is OK then try... Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on 'My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem! If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time... Double click on each of the devises that have 'Audio' in the listings. Click the "Properties" tab, look for any "Warning" icons Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below. Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program. Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
