Doing so has stopped the speakers in the laptop working. How do I get the sound back please? Carafaraday 11:11 30 Jan 2017 Just in case anyone else has the same problem. Right click sound icon, select playback devices, set speakers to default. Result! This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
