I have recently re-installed Windows XP on my PC and I cannot hear any audio from Flash steams such as YouTube videos. I can hear it from Silverlight streams and from things such as Spotify. It just seems to be Flash. I have tried the following regedit:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]

quick question: why did you try those specific registry edits? if you can play sound elsewhere its clearly not a driver issue – Redandwhite Oct 31 '09 at 15:25
I was given that advice elsewhere – GaryDevenay Oct 31 '09 at 15:33
Give more information. What browser? Have you rebooted? Did you check the Flash volume slider? Have you tried a different browser (e.g. switch from IE to FF or vice versa)? What version of Flash Player? – CarlF Oct 31 '09 at 17:22
Okay. I've rebooted many times, Tried both IE and FF, Any version of flash player, tried uninstalling flash and reinstalling, yes I did check the volume slider. – GaryDevenay Nov 1 '09 at 11:26
