Depends what the sites you speak of are using to embed the audio. If they are using Macromedia flash, and you see the video or animation or whatever but no audio, then you may just have to update your flash player to the latest version. (Get latest flash version here
) If they are using embedded windows media player, that version may be out of date as well, but commonly version issues with WMP does not give you any problems.
Another thought it that though the volume on the computer and speakers may be turned up, for whatever reason you may have the WAVE volume turned down. To correct this, double click the speaker in the bottom right of the taskbar and find the levels for "wave" and verify they are turned up.
If you've checked all of these things, and none of them correct the issues, then it may be a problem with the website itself, or a more serious issue with your computer. But if your audio is working elsewhere, just not on the internet, you may want to check for browser updates, or try a new browser (I personally use Firefox 1.5, and it has a ton of extensions and add-ons that let you do anything you want. My favorite is adblock, which lets you right click on advertisements and chose to block the advertisements server. IT also has a whitelist to prevent blocking specific images or servers. www.getfirefox.com
If you have any other questions or problems, PM me, and I'm usually quick to respond. I'm online all day everyday due to my awful class/work schedule here.
Best of luck!
