I lost audio in Flash (which is what Youtube vids are) on my Win2k rig several months ago. I blame it on Adobe.
You're highly unlikely to enjoy Linux. Getting any audio whatsoever in Linux on certain rigs that came with Win2K installed is nigh on impossible.
EDIT: Actually, it's worth a shot downloading, burning and running a live CD to see if Linux would work for you. IF you ONLY need a browser, office suite and a photoshop-like program, Linux might work for you. If you need specific Windows programs, you might be outta luck, however. You could try Mint mentioned above, or Ubuntu, or...
If you burned the CD correctly ( you may need to "press any key to boot from CD...") and Windows boots, then you know you need to adjust your BIOS.
The BIOS work is pretty easy, you just need to make sure your computer is set to boot from CD first. F2, F10 and Delete buttons while booting are the most common keys used to enter the BIOS.
