I've been having a problem of sound lately. I don't know if it's related to my sound card but what i realized is that even if i change my speaker or plug headphones instead, i can't hear anything. Also, I've realized that my computer doesn't have the volume function anymore.
Let me explain: usually, there were a little icon in the right corner where i could ajust the sound volume. I don't have it anymore and when i look under Configuration Panel (sorry for a wicked translation but my pc is in french..) well it says that's it not install. I don't know if it's my sound card that has a bug... in fact i've been looking forward to buy new speakers (maybe if they come with an installation CD, all will be alright
so thanks a lot for your help,
and by the way, merry early christmas
