I would go to the device manager (Start>Run> type devmgmt.msc), Click on "View tab, Click on "Show Hidden Devices", Cursor down to "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers", Click on "+" to open...Check for any of these !, X, or ?... If there are any conflicts (any of the symbols !, X, or ?) double-click it to open...Click on Drivers tab and choose to either Roll Back or Update...You can also Un-Install and then re-boot to let Windows find it for you...
You can also go to the Manufacturers website and download the drivers...You must know the make and model and even the service tag to get original drivers or even updated ones (to a certain extent) to get your sound back (providing of course that you don't have a hardware problem)...If you download Drivers from the manufacturer just follow the instructions on the download page for installation.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
