I've been searching for about a week now & downloaded various codec packages to retrieve sound, unfortunately no success.
Following the reinstall, the computer is back to normal (speed-wise), just no sound with it,
I've done all the idiot (connection) checks & tested the monitor speakers through another device, the volume channel is unmuted, all seems OK,
When I've followed the advice from microsoft & ran a test, it comes back with - digital device is working normally.
It tells me no drivers need updating & when I click on the the speaker icon to open the volume level there's no column with a speaker in it (how I remember it), but 2 columns, 1 with digital output device & the other is windows sounds. But no audio coming through.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
