If they are all ok then I would uninstall all the programs that you have installed recently that affect your audio, any players etc.
Finally you can install all the latest audio codecs from Microsofts site here
Hey, I just wanted to let everyone know that I finally fixed my problem. I'm ecstatic about it too!
So thanks to everyone for their help. Here's how I fixed the problem for anyone else that comes across this problem. I can't say that this is a solution for everyone, but it worked for me. Alright the problem is really the mapping of wavemapper in Windows registry as reported by one member of the forum. All you need to do is to open registry editor by going to Start menu, Run, typing regedit and then Enter. After that, in the registry editor, walk yourself through the tree in the left pane, till you reach
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win dows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32
And then on the right pane, right click and click on New, select String value, enter "wavemapper" (without quots of course), ENTER, right click again and click modify under value data type "msacm32.drv", ENTER.
Close the editor. No need to restart. Video on Google and YouTube et al would work fine now.
