LOL very very tempting!  I am wondering if it the combined graphic/cpu that is the issue, perhaps getting an nvidia graphics card might help (I know I am grasping at straws here).

The plot thickens, when running a live cd of the latest Mint I get sound on youtube.... next step is to install it and see if it still works (though I am slightly wary as Grub doesn't always pick up other Linuxs installed (so a quick back up and a look at adding grub entries would be useful! ) 

If it does work what do you suggest I make a note of?

Lyn, the issue I've found with GRUB not picking up other installations depends on whether you're installing a 32-bit or 64-bit system. It's been my experience that GRUB for 32-bit distros tends to ignore any 64-bit installation.

OK installed a 64bit version of mint and all is working as expected, I have sound when using the www....  Flash etc This proves that its not the hardware that is a problem its the software (and its configuration).   Now what configuration files do I need to look at to replicate on Vector - so that I can get sound working in my Vector install....  Sound also works in Manjaro live 64 bit version.... an Arch Linux based distro.

Any idea of what config files I should be looking at to resolve the no sound on web pages issues?  Now that I have a distro where I have it all working what should I copy to my vector installation?

I searched the internet and couldn't find that page, I suspect quite a few people with have this issue so I think if we could make the solution "sticky" then that might help others....and thank you again for this.
