No sound In Google Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer, but wmp works

Hello, Everything Was fine Until two days ago. I have audio in Windows media player, CD's, games and programs but for some very odd reason, I get absolutely NO audio in any browsers. That includes Google Chrome, FF, IE and even Safari. I have re-installed all browsers, re-installed java/flash player, re-installed all audio drivers and nothing works! I have a quad-core Gateway win 7 PC. Please help! Email me at if you have an answer.

Hello fowler, and Welcome to Sevenforums.

It is probably not a very good idea to list your email in a public forum where anyone could potentially use it to send you spam (unless you want people to send you answers to your email, thus giving you their email address *Gasp* are you a spammer?). Which begs the question of why you would want someone sending you the answer via email instead of through this forum.

Now to the problem at hand for this forum. Please answer all of these questions: When did this problem start? What antivirus do you run? Have you changed any registry items? Have you installed a 3rd party firewall? Why do you have all the major browsers installed (this one just because I'm curious)? Can you go to youtube and play a video, and can you hear sound then?

Have you checked the volume mixer? Maybe the level for the browsers was reset somehow.

Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox WON'T OPEN!
:mad: Irritating! I was on the Channel 4 website watching videos, then I closed Google Chrome, opened iTunes (which incidentally doesn't work now either, keeps freezing), tried to go back into Google Chrome, no joy, neither with Firefox or IE. They just won't open! What's going on here?!
