    Java and Flash: Sound not working

    Sound is not working in Java or Flash... what can I do?

    Sound works on other things, just not these.

    hey you could try installing flashplugin-nonfree.

    and, make sure youve got the medibuntu repository in the software sources dialog System->Administration->Software Sources

    and if that still doesnt work, check this out:

    Just found another problem: It is not only java and flash. Sound only plays when battery is low and the system beeps to remind me.

    My sound card is a Presario V6133CL. I cannot use sound at all. None.

    hmm...im waaay out of my league here, but it sounds (duh!) like either the sound card is dead/not installed properly, or the problem is software related. Im gonna guess that the *beep* is the system speaker, which is nothing to do with the soundcard.

    have you ever got sound, or is this a recent problem?

    i know this is a dumb thing to say...but check all your volumes and mute switches...
