I lost the sound on the internet. Is it a Firefox setting or a computer setting?
thanks

Sounds like a computer issue. I know nothing about WIN so you likely will have to wait until one reads this thread.

No probs, Walt.

I suppose that you checked the "Speaker" icon > "Mixer" & that nothing is MUTED?

I am referring to the SPEAKER icon in your SYSTEM tray... down near the clock.
That will show you all the audio/sound settings for any program that you have running.

You can turn on or off the volume system icon in the notification area like so.

Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Notification Area Icons > System Icons

You can open the volume mixer by running the following executable.

C:\Windows\System32\SndVol.exe

choose Level>Turn on speakers>

With HDMI I have sound from my laptop to my 40"TV again....Amazing
