Hi all, hope I'm not double posting, but I searched the forum and couldn't find anyone with the same problem. I'm a new user to Linux Mint 8(Ubuntu 9.10) and I've been experiencing a weird problem. Everything works fine on my HP nc8000 except that when I'm watching some flash in any web browser, my audio stops working in other apps. eg. Skype, VLC.... funny thing, if i do a sound test in skype while i have some flash on, i cannot hear it, but as soon as I close the web browser, I hear the test as if the sound was queued... Go easy on me Linux gurus, I'm a noobie..

Thanks in advance.
