I suspect that I’ve inadvertently done something stupid to the computer, because all of a sudden I’m getting no sound: not even system sounds. It was fine yesterday afternoon.
I’ve checked all the obvious things–speakers seem to be connected, no wires appear to be loose, I’ve not unplugged anything accidentally, volume is on the usual place on the slider and not muted, the sound-card seems to be working, there don’t appear to be any hardware conflicts in Device Manager.
What’s interesting, though, and may provide a clue to a person who actually *has* a clue about this stuff, is that the sound’s still fine through headphones.
When I’ve had sound problems in the past there’s always been a very simple solution, arising out of the fact that I’ve done something daft. Does anyone have any ideas, please?
