    No sound on youtube vids etc

    On my laptop, When I start a vid on youtube or similar, I can't get any sound. My volume settings are all turned up ok but still nowt.

    This happened to me a while back & it was a real simple solution but I'm that simple I can't remeber what it was I did to get the sound back.

    Any ideas guys? Please no techy spechy jargon.

    Thanks.

    me.

    No- 1st thing I tried!. Sound works ok on everythhing else, media player etc just not on online video/tv stuff.

    Just youtube? Re-install flash, goto contol panel and uninstall it. Go to the adobe website and reinstall it. You tried firefox if using IE
