can't listen to onlline radio or live streaming

Hello guys. It is my first post and hope to find some help with my laptop sound problem. The last 3 days i can't listen to live streaming such as online radio or online tv etc.. I try to install again the google chrome, i install again the wmp firefox plugin on my chrome, i install the java again but nothing. What could be the issue for this sound problem? Thank you guys for any help.

First thing to consider... many of these radio stations use Flash, so make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Are you using the 64 bit version of IE or??? If yes, try the 32 bit version... there are some "issues" with Flash and IE64.

You dont have any other apps open at the time monopolizing the speakers do you?

Did you try pandora?

Pandora does not use plug-ins and I want to see if it's a plug-in issue.

You could also give RadioSure a try. It works great and it's free.

Feel free to call me an idiot if you think I'm stupid offering so simple possible solution, but this could be one of those issues where theory of Occam's Razor apply.

According to your problem description, only sounds you don't get are those of a browser. Have you checked that you are not accidentally muted your browser?
