Good Day,

My problems is that no sound can be heard from my laptop. The volume is there. When I play a music file i see the green bar going up and down (in the sound bar). The correct Device is selected as default device in Sound Options. I can get the sound back by disabling and enabling the Audio Device in Device Manager, but sometimes it requires a restart so it's kinda cumbersome.
The last thing I did was install an update for my Video Card driver.

My Laptop is Alienware M17x R2
Specs are,
Processor : Intel Core i7 CPU Q 820
Memory : 8192MB Ram
Display : ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5800 series (HD 5870 Crossfire)
Sound : Speaker / Headphones (IDT High Definition Audio)

Have you tried reverting to the previous driver?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
