I currently am having a problem with my sound. I have gone through all the help guides and its not working. My problem is this: I do not have any sounds or playback sounds. I do get beeps when warnings or file probs arise but not sound playback. When I go to the sound and audio devices control panel it says no audio device. However, when I go to hardware it shows I have my SoundMax card and it is working properly. It is also set to be used. I also do not have a speaker icon in my toolbar as I previously did. So I don't know what gives. Any help would be awesome.

Let's look at some settings.

Start > Control Panel > Sound, Speach and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab
place a checkmark next to: Place volume icon in the taskbar

Then click on the Audio tab. Under Sound playback, what is listed as the default device? Use the pull down menu to select SoundMax if it is not already selected.

Click Apply and OK.

Does it work now?

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
