Thanks APsit190 for the reply!
I had no issues with any hardware. I'll try to clarify my concern. With some questions for you.
Do you use Chrome or Firefox? If so, just leave them as they are.
Are you using a Windows PC, Win.7 or above with IE 11+? If so, there's an option in Programs Removal (or around this area), Turn Windows Components Off/On. In there you can completely disable IE or whatever, there's several options. Great tool I personally think. Just turn off IE. It may take some time to do it's thing. It may want you to restart, can't remember! Just restart and IE is still there but completely disabled.
Open Esword and try the Sermon Audio Tool again. With me it wouldn't. This is with IE disabled!
Now, make Chrome or Firefox the default browser. Try the Tool again. I still didn't get it to work.
Now, when I went back to Windows Components an turned IE back on, going through the same mess as described above. Low and behold, Sermon Audio Tool worked.
I hope this is a little clearer!
I've never had an issue with e-Sword's SermonAudio thingy (real IT terminology being used here, "thingy." Has to be a real worry) came out since, of which I was using Windows XP at that time, and never had an issue with it in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (never had Vista or Windows 7).
In regards to Chrome and IE (and this includes Edge,) I've barely used these products, and am a Firefox user and have it as my default browser.
So, with that, here are a couple of tests you can do to determine if whether or not you have an actual hardware or sound driver issue:
- Play an audio file (mp3) of a sermon or music on your PC to see if you are getting sound.
- Play a video (mp4) file to see if your sound through your graphics/video card
Now, if you're not getting sound from any of these devices, then you have an issue with one of two of these devices as either being Hardware related or Sound Driver related.
Test though using the following:
- Speaker output jacks
- HDMI connection
- USB Headset or headphones.
Once having done your tests please post the results.
Having said all of that, my gut instinct tells me is that your machine is on the way out due to the fact that it would be about 7 to 10 years old. Moreover, your problem could be software incompatibility related and/or outdated drivers. And if any of these are contributing factors to your audio(/video) problems, then you seriously will either require major driver updates or a new or updated PC.
