I just reformatted and downgraded from Vista to XP yesterday. At first, the sound worked, however after a while it stopped working (perhaps after I installed updates).
I've tried checking the Volume Controls, and it says no audio device is detected.
I've tried updating the drivers.. but no changes.
I've tried system restoring back to the very beginning of the changes, but no.
I've tried uninstalling Service Pack 3 and going back to SP2.
My sound device is detected in "Device Manager" and it says it is enabled and working fine.
Interestingly, I can only hear sound coming from my speakers in my driver's Audio Manager (Realtek HD Audio Manager), by listening to the "3D Audio Demo". In any other programs, there is no sound, and for the Windows sounds, all I hear is an annoying beep coming from the internal speaker. This shows that my speakers are indeed working.
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A200-AH7 and my sound device is "Realtek High Definition Audio".
Anyone know what's up?
P.S. - here's some screenies that may help - http://i34.tinypic.com/28rz2c8.png
