    Okay, my mom's laptop is not playing sound. There's a red "x" next to the speaker symbol on the right side of the task bar. When you hover it says "No Audio Output Device is installed." The sound was working fine on Saturday. :dunno:

    Any ideas? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    This has happened to me and I am going to try my best to explain how I fixed it. I was downloading an updated driver for my laptop and found out the thing didn't work so I just reset back to my old driver. I'm trying to think how I did that as right now it evades me and if I do I will get back to you soon. Sorry to be so vague.
