Have you tried a different browser? While the symptom is audio - it all seems web related...

Denny,

Not sure, but I 'think' what I suggested last time fixed it (unfortunately I'm pretty sure that thread was lost in Brewhahaneverneverland)

Try right-clicking My Computer and going to Manage....then Device Manager....then try uninstalling the audio device totally (right-click Uninstall)...reboot...then reinstall the drivers again....

Could be a different issue this time, but it's worth a shot.....

Yeah, that worked in the past, but not so far this time....

Good idea, so I tried it with IE.  No go, though....

OK, download the Ubuntu disk - work off of that for a while to see if your speaker issue remains intermittent. This will tell you if you have a hardware or software issue. You don't need to install Ubuntu, you can run it from the DVD.

Yep, it's not the files themselves....


SHHHHHHH.....

don't tell my computer, but I really do have it working now!  A combo of driver screwing around and resetting audio options in Firefox.  My audio apps are working and I'm listening to Pandora for the first time in months!
