Hi,

Short story:
I don't have any sound coming out of my speakers/headphones.

Long story:
A program was not responding so I opened task manager and went to end the process, i accidentally ended one of the svchost.exes which gave me a warning that my computer would shut down in 1min. The computer then restarted and when it was all fully loaded I had no sound, I went to check the sound icon in the task bar but it wasn't there.
A Google search brought me to Here. I followed garmanma's advice and went to the device manager. The only exclamation mark was System Devices > then something to do with plug and play. I proceeded to uninstall it (in retrospect I shouldn't have done this). I then restarted the PC, I still have no sound and no idea how to fix my problem.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
