Tried playing a DVD and mp3 file through many different media players, and none of them play sound. Some even refuse to start playing. All applications also have no sound. Streaming in browsers however, have sound. Such as Youtube and Last.fm. I think I remember having sound before fiddling with gpedit.msc and altering some registry keys for full administrator access.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You might consider removing your support for sound in the device manager and then rebooting. When you do that, it should auto-install the drivers for you.

Click on the control panel, then sounds. Click on the device that is checked, then click on properties. Now click on the 'advanced tab, and see if it's set to DVD Quality.
