Try going here if you didnt.
Control Panel>Sound,Speech, and Audio Devices
Then Click On "Sounds and Audio Devices"
You should see your Sound Card Name Like Mine does here.
See where it says Aztech Audio Does your's say its there?
Then go to the TAB that says "Audio"
and you should see like this
Click On the Space if there is nothing selected and see if your Driver/Sound Device is listed.
Let me know if that solved anything.
After installing the latest windows updates, my toshiba satellite laptop has lost the ablity to play back sound on speakers or headphones.
Everything was working fine until the automated download of Microsoft's latest security "FIX".
I checked device manager and all audio devices - no hardware problems, have the lastest drivers, etc. In short, nothing on my system says that I should be having this problem.
I tried playing some music in windows media player, it was playing fine, I just couldn't hear it.
Anyone else have a problem with sound cards going bonkers after a windows update?
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling sound drivers for the sound card (realtek AC97)...any other suggestions or solutions for this problem? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
