Just recently i turned on my comp and the sound did not work. I rebooted and it still didnt work, neither my speakers or headphone jack. Then i went to volume control and muted the sound then turned the sound back on. It worked perfectly. Then the problem has arrisen again and i tried the mute trick i tried earlier but to no avail. i have updated the drivers and still nothing.

Hmmm.....do you have a sound card or onboard audio (integrated audio)? If it's a card, what is it? If it's onboard, make sure that you have the right program for your computer (seems simple enough, but I've seen people with multiple computers try to install the wrong programs on different computers!).

Go into your control panel, double click on "System" then click on the "Hardware" tab, then click on "Device Manager". Are there any yellow exclamation points or red question marks? If so, where (what are they next to)?

Please provide this information, as it'll help us to help you! Post back and we'll go from there!
