I have uninstalled my audio drivers and re installed them,updated them. did windows updates, hp updates. gone through device manager and services. nothing so far has worked. I am trying to avoid a "nuke and pave" on the system.

crashes

can someone please help, anytime I go to view something on youtube it stalls out, says the page is unresponsive. None of the media players I have work either. There was a issue with my sound, I uninstalled and re installed my drivers and updated them. I have done system updates,system repairs,everything I can think of. I went to flash player (adobe) and tried to update an it says I have the latest update. can someone please help me. other than possibly wiping out the system an starting over I don't know what to do. thank you

Hi and welcome to FpcH

I have merged your two threads.

I figured it out, it was two conflicting flash players
Congratulations - it would have taken us a long time to find that one :)

Can you let us know which Flash Players were conflicting - this may help others with a similar problem.

I have chrome and I had adobe flash player, which automatically came with chrome so I removed the adobe one and it corrected the issue.
