Just guessing.

Can you hear sound otherwise, eg playing music from music tracks on your computer and not from within a browser?

If so then there is nothing wrong with the computer sound.

So, just guessing here, but when you are on the internet watching a video or listening to music, look for the "Volume Control" on the media player that you can see in the browser, and see if you need to increase that.

Did it ever work?

If so the only choice I see is to use System Restore to when it worked. While we know there are controls for this volume beyond what's noted, I find most folk don't want to go looking (will only accept a step by step.)

It's time to restore to when it worked.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
