To access analog/digital settings (not sure if this is what you need but I'm throwing it for you anyway)
If you have a sound icon next to your clock, click the icon and open Play Control. The first panel, at least on mine, is Play Control. Click the advanced tab there, in the box that comes up check 1 Digital Output Only. If it's checked, uncheck it. Put in a cd, see if you hear anything.
Also check the sound controls to make sure nothing is muted.
If you don't have the sound icon in the system tray- Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Volume Tab. Click Advanced to open Play Control, follow the above procedure.
When Play Control opens, if you don't see the Play Control panel or advanced in Play Control, click on Options/Properties. Check the box next to play control, then OK.
(The above steps are based on my SB card. Yours may be the same or something similar. The first time I formatted my computer and reinstalled SB drivers, it took me 4 hours of going through my sound settings and sound control before I stumbled on the Digital Output solution)
You did not use WinUpdate to get drivers, did you?
What website provided the updated drivers...and why did you update?
If it were me, I would just uninstall the drivers via Device Manager...reinstall the old ones...see if sound resumes. Solves many an irritating circumstance in ComputerLand.
If so, I would try updating them properly.
And, of course, file corruption could have been the culprit .
