But if a system restore fails, and you backup to do the system recovery fails, then for under 2 bucks I use one of these.
The new motherboard costs much more.
My computer is a dell inspiron 570, running windows 7.
I've had it for a couple years now, and this is the first time I've experienced this problem. I went to bed with my computer on and it automatically when to standby, but when I woke and tried to use my computer, there was no sound coming from the speakers.
All of my drivers/settings are intact. The sound is not muted, and the speakers themselves work when I jack them into my Mp3 player. I have also tried using headphones in the speaker jack, but there was still no sound.
I've attempted a system restore, downloading new drivers, etc but the problem persists.
