Is there anything in here that has a ! or ? next to it?

Expert:  Scott L replied 8 years ago.
I did not give an answer I am requesting information. Did you follow the steps I indicated because you did not answer my questions? We need to see if it is being detected in Device Manager. Ther is no magical answer to your question, we need to do some research.

Expert:  JMU 1998 replied 8 years ago.
did the sound ever work or it just started to happen? Any recient changes or updates to the computer? Have you tried the point-in-time system restore option.

See below:

If you are not familiar with system restore what it does is basically restores your Operating system (NOT PERSONAL DATA) to a point-in-time of your choosing.

So if you recall a date when the the problem was not occuring just restore it to that date and the Operating System will restore itself to that moment-in time. Yes, this process is reversable and can always go back to today if it does not solve the problem by running another restore again this time picking todays date so it is reversable.

Again this does NOT change any of your personal files ONLY operating system and drivers give it a try.

Below are instructions to run the wizard.

1.Click Start.

2.Point to All Programs.

3.Point to Accessories.

4.Point to System Tools.

5.Click System Restore.

6.Follow the instructions on the wizard (restore to a date you know for sure it worked)
