no sound in videos on my laptop

I got an unusual problem with my laptop earlier today in which while playing videos like movies i cant hear the sound. i tried another format's video and happened the same. The laptop's sound is normal because i get sounds when playing youtube or other videos on facebook but the only time it happens is whenever i try to open a downloaded video from my computer. PLZ help me out.

what program are you using to play the videos?

Try using VLC player as it should play the majority of file formats

I use Vlc always. it isn't a format problem, the same video was playing yesterday on VLC and today it wont give sound.

Check sound settings for mute

Check device drivers

I checked the sound settings for like ten times. updated the drivers thrice and result the same. so i installed my windows again and that solved the problem. But i wanted to find a solution without reinstalling the windows that i couldnt. Anyhow it is all fine and working now. Thanks for the response though . I really appreciate that.
