Hi, I'm sure this is not the most uncommon topic brought up on the sound and audio board but I checked and didn't see anything that sounded helpful - the audio on my laptop suddenly stopped working!

I was watching a youtube video with my headphones, all was going fine, I paused the video and walked away for a moment then came back and the sound no longer worked. I unplugged the headphones and still no. I tried restarting the computer and still no. I checked the device manager and it says my sound devices are working properly. Everything is unmuted.

I do recall this problem happening once of twice in the past and its always been when I had my headphones plugged in so I really think its got something to do with them or the jack. The problem always seemed to fix itself eventually and the sound would come back. I'd like to get this figured out and not have this problem anymore. Does anyone think this could be a hardware issue? My laptop is barely a year old. Its a Toshiba L655 running Windows 7.

Any tips or advice would be most appreciated. Thanks!

***Update***

I shut my laptop down for the night and just tried it again this morning, the sound is now back.

I would still appreciate any tips/advice for what may be happening. I'm sure it will happen again. Restarting does not help but apparently shutting down over night does?
