Question about Computers & Internet

I downloaded Adobe Shockwave and now I have no sound on my computer at all. I've tried uninstalling the program to see if my sound would return, but no. I've reinstalled Shockwave and it's still the same. Absolutely no sound now with any program.

#1, see if it somehow disable or muted your sound card.
Look in Device Manager for the disabled indication, go to control panel for audio controls to see if the mute was turned on.

If it is enabled, and the mute is not on, I would try reloading the drivers for your audio card.

Shockwave is usually a very unobtrusive software, so this is kind of unusual.

I get shockwave crashed but not all the time when I am on my e mail and someone told me that I need to download it


Reinstall shockwave flash. since it's really two separate programs, you need to install two things, but first you need to manually uninstall both. to uninstall shockwave, go here: http://download.shockwave.com/pub/shockwave/uninstaller/swuninstaller.exe. as for flash, go here: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe. once you do that, restart your computer just in case there are any final uninstallation things that need to be done, and then reinstall both, using these two links: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ for flash and http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/ for shockwave. this SHOULD fix your problem. don't try to just reinstall both without uninstalling, because for some reason that doesn't seem to work (though it might for your OS). sometimes though this may only be a fix for a few days,

Fix adobe flash crashed in all browser


Try to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player Active X and Plug in and then reinstall it as there could be traces of previous versions in the computer which are interfering and making it difficult for the browsers to properly display videos on your computer. You can do this from the computer user settings and manipulating the "Add/Remove" programs list.

-- Try to use Flash Player 9 is your Flash Player 10 is not working fine. You can simply download it from the Adobe web site.

-- Update the drivers, the link is given below which would ask you to download the file through internet and run it on your computer.

-- The problem behind the Shockwave Flash crash could be your sound drivers. Follow these steps:

1) Open Device Manager
2) Look for the sound-card device
