Hello,
The audio on my Internet Explorer and Firefox does not work. The audio on my computer, such as iTunes, system sounds, basically everything that has nothing to do with the browsers, work perfectly fine. The last thing I did before this happened was delete an infected file through Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program. It said I had to restart my computer in order to complete the deletion of the infected file but I was busy and did not restart right away. The sound on the browsers after the scan was working perfectly fine. I forgot about restarting my computer and left it on for two days before my power went out, and when I turned my computer back on, I couldn't hear sound on videos that use Flash Player.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (build 7600). I've literally have been searching for a solution to this problem for the last 16 hours straight and I've yet to find anything that will fix this. So far, I have tried the following:

*Checked options on both browsers and they are where they should be.
*Checked the mixer, nothing is muted, but I read that there should be a box for the browser volume control when I play something that has sound but that doesn't even show up when I play a video on youtube.
*Uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player.
*Tried every jack and USB port on my computer and still nothing.
*Did two different system restores to two different dates when everything was normal, before I even deleted the infected file with Malwarebytes'.
*Used Ccleaner and installed the K-lite codec pack (the mega pack and the 64 bit pack).
*Checked the the System32 file for the msacm32.drv and it is there.
*Checked the registry for wavemapper which was there and also made sure it had msacm32.drv as the value data.
*Used the registry fix (missing.reg) that is basically found in EVERY post related to this problem.
*Made sure all the permissions were set to the correct settings.
*Made sure sound drivers were up to date.
*Uninstalled and reinstalled the sound device and drivers.
*Ran a sfc /scannow on cmd and after it finished it said it was unable to fix the files.
*Even went as far as making a new non-admin user and still nothing there.

I'm beyond annoyed and frustrated. It seems like everybody else out there finds a solution to this except for me. So far this has proven to be impossible to solve.

PLEASE help me find a solution. My last resort might have to be doing a clean install of Windows again and I really don't want to do that.

Your time and help will be GREATLY appreciated. Sorry for the wall of text.

Let me know or I can make your computer bark every 2.3 seconds for hours,

Good luck

Hiya,

am going nuts with my sudden -no audio on youtube.

- I check the global and normal settings.
- uninstalled and reinstalled all adobe stuff I had installed
- did all what was on this site,
- checked the volume panel in case it was muted (obviously, also checked teh volume)
- went to internet options and made sure "play sound on websites" is on,
- made sure to enable active x, java, flash stuff - well those bis

The problem started when I got a really nasty trojan, refef.k and siilars and I refused to reformat my computer because I cannot find my Windows 7 CD.

To defeat that bstrd I had to (not confidently, but thinking that may be a last resource before reformattng as none of the antimalwares worked) fiddle with the registry. I must have deleted some registry folder that was connected to this Flash (or whatever relates to youtube) not to work.

As I saw you posted something related to the registry (which i, unsuccessfully tried) I wonder if you may have any ideas on how to repair/add/check other registry folders that should be there and are not.

Thanks!! :)
Andrea
nothing changes on me .. pls help ???

Another fix:

Open registry editor by going to Start menu, Run, typing regedit and then Enter. After that, in the registry editor, walk yourself through the tree in the left pane, till you reach

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

And then on the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter "wavemapper" (without quots of course), ENTER, type

Good Luck!
It worked for me, thanks a lot

I found an answer that worked for my HP computer with RealTek Audio. See http://ccm.net/forum/affich-104991-adob-flash-player-10-has-no-sound#newanswer

Once I went to www.HP.com\support and downloaded and installed the latest RealTek audio driver, rebooted, whalla I had sound again from IE8.

Prior to that I did the following:
- Verified Volume Mixer Internet Explorer was not muted
- Verified speakers worked with iTunes
- Checked Internet Options -> Advanced -> Multimedia -> Play sounds in webpages
- Reinstalled Java
- Reinstalled Adobe Flash Player
- Applied the registry fix described on this post
- Verified wavemapper=msacm32.drv and msacm32.drv existed
- Ran sfc /scannow
But none of these worked.

@Andrea

To help you and precribe a remedy, I must make a diagnostic and to do so, I require a system log.

1. Boot in safemode with networking.

2. Open this link and download ZHPDiag2 :

http://telechargement.zebulon.fr/telecharger-zhpdiag.html

(Don't be alarmed is the site is in French, it sometimes happens, the tool will take your system language and allow the download if you get a warning message. Also clicking on the "hardhat" icon allows to change the language.)

3. Save the file on your Desktop.

4. Double click on ZHPDiag.exe and follow the installation instructions.

the tool creates three icons ZHPDiag, MRB, and ZHPFix (If necessary,we will use ZHPFix at the next step).

5. Double click on the short cut ZHPDiag on your Destktop.

6. Click on the Magnifying glass and run the analysys.

Wait for the tool to finished (maybe a long time)

7. Close ZHPDiag.


6. To transmit the report, click on this link :

http://www.speedyshare.com/

7. Click on Parcourir and search the directory where you installed ZHPDiag (usually C:\Program Files\ZHPDiag).

8. Select the file ZHPDiag.txt.

9. Click on "upload »

10. Copy the url and post it here

Best regards
