Help! My sound has died

  sharpe 16:40 19 Jul 2007

My sound has gone completely. I can't hear when emails arrive, when friends 'call' for a chat on MSN/AOL etc, no sound when I play online games.

I've checked out the sounds and audio devices in the Control Panel and everything is as it was before it went dead.

Any ideas please?

Can you test the speakers on an external device,like a walkman?
Is your sound ,integrated into the motherboard or on a sound card?

Jeeez, I read, "Help! My soul has died"....

Go into device manager and check whether there are any yellow question marks (indicating a missing driver issue).

Have you tried simply rebooting the computer? I know it sounds silly, but guess who spent two hours trying to find the problem.......say no more.
