Default IME not responding, no sound coming out of computer, no video playback

#1
I turned my laptop on today and every time I try to stream a video online, whether it be from megavideo, bbc iplayer, youtube etc causes the browser window to crash immediately. I then tried to play a film in windows media player - it wont open and immediately crashes. The same film will play in VLC but with no sound. The volume control seems to be bugged and I can't open it, either from the keyboard or from the desktop toolbar. When I open task manager, it says 'Default IME not responding'. I cant open Itunes, and I can't open the sound tab from the control panel, it freezes immediately. I've done a virus scan and tried the windows troubleshooters, Ive reinstalled windows media player and I'm now completely stuck :( I cant reinstall windows cuz the disc is at university and I'm not back there for a month and I can't handle my laptop not working for so long, please help!!!!

Thanks, Rachel

Does this happen after the machine has gone to sleep? This "Default IME not responding" seems to be a bit of an known issue, some say updating drivers has helped, for your networking chip and sounds as well.

it happen anytime, not specially after a sleep mode...
tried to update my drivers but seems that nothing changed...

the bug is always happening due to a crash from my web browser... tried to uninstall then reinstall but nothing changed too

Fire Fox I assume? If so what version?

tested on Firefox 3.6.3
tested on IE 8.0.7600.16385

but it's like what is said on the first post, WMV -VLC - WINAMP - or any other media player are affected by the same bug once it happening.

And the volume control can't be opened, either from the keyboard or from the desktop toolbar.

ps: sorry for my awful english

Long Shot???
1) Open WMP
2) Went to menu Tools>Options>Network Tab>Streaming Proxy Settings Section
3) Configured any listed streaming protocol (HTTP/RTSP) to "Do not use a proxy server".
My setting when the problem was occurring was that HTTP was set to "Use proxy settings of the Web Browser" This, apparently, was causing the problem.


Applicable O/S: Windows 7 Professional Version 6.1 (Build 7600)
