for some reason all of a sudden my sound stopped working... it's funny cause i can hear sounds from media players but i can't hear system sounds (start-up sounds,recycle bin sounds...) or sounds embedded in webpages... it's as if my system doesn't recognize my drivers although it tells me they are all working properly.the volume icon in the taskbar is missing also.it does not re-appear even when i check/un-check or re-check the option to appear in the taskbar.

i have uninstalled/re-installed/updated all my sound drivers numerous times... i've even updated my bios.

also... i have volume controls on my laptop and those are non-responsive now.

i been everywhere no1 knows what the deal is... re-installing windows is out of the question. :thumbsup:

ps:i have system restore off so that is also out of the question.

Run the device manager, does it see any errors with any of your devices? Have you recently installed any sound boards that could be causing a conflict?

na idk what that is...

volume control ain't as big of a deal as being able to hear sound in my browsers/system tho... i believe they coincide tho because when i lost my controls i lost sound.

Look at this page and choose a program that is free, not free to try, just free,

http://downloads-zdnet.com.com/3120-20-0.h...&tg=dl-2001

After you choose one and install one tell me if anything changes.

Hm... Have you run any virus scans to check for a possible viral infection? Check out our tutorials for up to date virus scans.

What type of virus scan do you use? Could it be a codec problem?

Providing everything was working properly on your computer and you know exactly when the problem began the quickest way to fix the problem may be to use Windows System Restore to revert your system state to a point before the problem began.

start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Start the System Restore Wizard and choose a date from before the problem began.

symantec antivirus corporate edition... lavasoft ad-aware/ad-watch... spy sweeper... yahoo anti-spy and a few others i 4get... my PC like Fort Knox.

i doubt it's a codec problem cause i can hear sounds in WMP and winamp... it's just system sounds and sounds in my browsers that don't work.
