Windows 7: Lost video sound since reinstall of W 7

21 Nov 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)bit build 7601
Lost video sound since reinstall of W 7

I use VLC player and on reinstall got it down as usual. I usually shut off vids on news but went to listen to one and found couldnt get sound.

. Now I'm average user. And now 80th year, so forget things a bit lately - but I have googled and not found a lot to fix this except to download other players and try them
so I did Real Player, and another and also tried inbuilt media player. None worked.

I also downloaded Flash and Shockwave player after finding out how to get the Firefox to allow them as its stopped these. Still didnt work.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled VLC player.

I have gone through services and devices all are working says Windows.

I couldnt get Media player set up going as well as it should and wont play or anything much.
And have forgotten how to roll it back - there is a way - senior moment kicking in!

Any ideas with how to do it clues - will absolutely be a Godsend. I hate being beaten but I am.
And feeling stupid. Be Kind! Its probably something silly.
