for some reason vista hides the devices after you disable them--I was correct in assuming I could re-enable them.
I did something really stupid the other day out of frustration-long story short I couldn't get sound for a video on a certain platform so I started systematically disabling my audio output devices, thinking that I could simply re-enable them later. Lo and behold they disappeared. I have been trying to restore my system, but the only restore points showing up are from after the disaster. Is there any way to reveal earlier restore points (perhaps that my computer made automatically) so I can get my sound back?
edit: I am operating on a Vista basic
