Hi Middy2,

If you have the sound drivers just install them again and restart your computer.

Let me know if you need more help.

Hi Middy,

Sorry I was away. My system shutdown so had reboot again and get back on net. Sorry for that. Ok so you said that your system was running ok sometime back. Okay. Lets try System Restore and see if that works for you.

Here are the steps for it :-

  • Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.

     

  • On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.

  • On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point where system was working fine.
  • On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
  • Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
  • The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

Let me know if this helps. If not I am right here till your issue gets resolved.

Regards,

Krish
