Hey, I am completely lost with my pc. I went on it last night, and had a video playing on youtube, all fine, and i pressed the shutdown key to turn off the comp. When I put on the computer this morning there was no sound. I checked the obvious, like the volume control settings, scanned for spyware and virus' (just in case) and have generally been messing about for hours trying to figure this out. I tried different speakers, updated drivers... I was about to try a different sound card to see if mine had gone kaputt, but on a whim I tried my microphone... I get sound through the speakers from my mic! Nothing from windows sound files, nothing from cd's or anything else. Please please if you have any ideas of what could be causing this, I'd love to hear.... its driving me crazy!!!!
Yeah, I'd already tried restore. Tried the services thing, it is set to automatic. Also, I dont understand why I can hear sound from my microphone but nothing else?? Thanks for your help so far guys xx Appreciated.
*LOL* no.... If i use my microphone I hear the sound through my speakers. Its just for some reason windows sounds, application sounds, like cds, itunes, ie, games, - Anything else.... I just cant hear.
Oh Thank God! Somehow the problem is now resolved xx Thanks for your help all xxx I'm not sure what did it, but I cleaned the registry and then restarted to last known good config and now I finally have sound!! F'in windows!!!!!!!!!! grrr
