 Weird, external speakers stop working and on board sound starts to work, (device manager says device is unplugged, whether speakers are plugged into front or back). This happened a month or so ago and i came across a random YouTube video that had me stop a service, delete the hardware from device driver and install a driver, that worked sound returned.
Cant find that instruction again.  Any idea?

I managed to find and download a new driver set for this unit and now the speakers work., Why does the driver keep changing?

Any file...may become damaged/corrupted in Windows.  The reasons for corruption are varying, but the end result is that the file cannot do all that it is supposed to do.


Corrupt drivers are often highlighted in Event Viewer and BSOD logs/bug reports.


The standard cure is to uninstall the damaged file...and reinstall one which is undamaged.
