Desktop suddenly lost all sound. No idea what could have caused. Someone suggested reloading driver, but I don't know where to start. Anybody willing to give step-by-step instructions..would really appreciate.

Simple solutions from simple minds here.

Open the control panel. Go to the Sound applet. Make sure it is showing the sound card.

Check to be sure the speakers are plugged into the wall and turned on.
Check to be sure the speakers are still plugged into the computer.
Check the volume control and be sure it isn't set to Mute or no volume.Do the same with the mixer.
Test the speakers.
Make sure the sound card is firmly seated into the motherboard if the computer has one.

I'm suggesting these since I've seen them as the cause for no sound more than once.

Good Luck

You might suggest to Windows 7 Users: Start > All Programs > Accessories > CMD (Right-Click: Run as Administrator), then enter; sfc /scannow
I Tried your Suggestion in the RUN command and got back unknown entry
