This has been an issue for a while now ...been overseas in September....noticed it when returned....
Expert:  Bryan replied 10 months ago.

Hmm, okay. Just to clarify, do you not get Windows sounds either (e.g. when logging on to your account)? Can we go ahead with a free remote session so that I can check this for you now? Do let me know.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No I dont. Speakers dont work.
Expert:  Bryan replied 10 months ago.

OK, please do this now:

RIGHT-CLICK on the Start button at the bottom-left corner of your screen, and click "Device Manager".

In the Device Manager window, double-click on "Sound, video and game controllers" - do you see any audio device listed there?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Realtek High Definition Audio
Expert:  Bryan replied 10 months ago.

OK; please RIGHT-CLICK on that device and select "Uninstall".

TICK the "Remove driver software" checkbox when prompted and uninstall the device.

Next, in the Device Manager, click on the "Actions" tab at the top > Scan for hardware changes".

Allow it a couple of minutes to detect and reinstall the audio device.

Finally, open up a video on Youtube and check if the sound works all right this time. Do keep me posted.

Still no sound on You tube video after audio device automatically installed when scanned for hardware changes. Computer installed High Definition Audio.

Hmm; can we set up a quick remote session so I can troubleshoot this further, directly?

Okay, let's get started with the remote session now. Please open up the following link:

On the page that opens up, click on "I Agree".

Follow the on-screen prompts to download and OPEN/RUN the "Elsinore Screen Connect" remote file, and we will be connected.

Oops I lost your comments...
Expert:  Bryan replied 10 months ago.

Hmm, I got disconnected from your screen now - did your Internet connection drop?

Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 10 months ago.

Dear Client,

my name is***** previous expert has opted out of your question because you both seem to have lost the connection with each.

Would you be interested in letting me continue to solve this problem directly at your computer via another remote connection? If so, please accept my offer for this and we can get started.

Thanks for your patience and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck
