The sound card on your computer may be damaged. My husband went through this exact situation, and we had to replace our Sound Cards.Usually, they will run about 30-50 dollars, depending on where you go. The other problem may be with IE itself,and they can trouble shoot the problem for you if you go to their helpdesk website.
