Hi newbie here. I have a problem downloading videos from websites such as you tube that has just began.It says I either have Java script turned off or I need to get the latest flash player which I have downloaded several times and installed and I still get the same answer. I have windows vista basic on a Dell 1520 inspiron laptop on 3 mobile broadband and have just upgraded(after the problem started) to IE8.Why has my video viewing come to an end :confused:

:) Glad we can help Jonno and donations are both appreciated and are used strictly to maintain FPCH for our members.

I would give some consideration to rolling back to Internet Explorer 7 until 8 is a bit more proven. It has received some pretty mixed review at best.

Hi

Go to Control Panel and select Sounds and Audio Devices
Put a check in the box by Place volume icon in taskbar

Check Device Manager:
  • Right-Click My Computer and select Properties
  • Click on the Hardware Tab and click on Device Manager
  • Is there any yellow ! or red x by the Sound or Audio Devices?
