Perhaps they found a hole in your speakers?? Try uninstalling the update..
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
