Recovering a vista home Premium 32 bit laptop for a friend, just noticed sound stopped working, so i restored it back a few days to when i though it was working, still no luck, when i open the control panel/sound the device "speakers and dual headphones " is set as default, right click then choose test and is says "failed to play test tone"
the only other device listed is :
SPDIF ( digital out via HP dock)
restored back as far as i could, still no sound...
i found a link for a registry fix, but it didn't apply in this case as the entry wasn't present.
Not sure what happened here or how to get the sound back.
