Volume No Longer Works

Last week or so my volume just stopped working. I don't believe my speakers are the problem. I've tried to fix my problem by doing a "system restore" but that didn't work. Also I have tried Control Panel>Sounds. Here it says my speakers/headphones are working and it also says my Digital Output Device is working. However next to Digital Output Device says "SPDIF OUT". When I try to click on the "Digital Output Device" option the 'configure' and 'set default' options are greyed out. I am not sure where to go from here, so hopefully one of you could please help me. I hope what I have said makes sense. If i need to be more clear please let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Let's start with the obvious here.
  • Re-install sound-drivers.
  • Try alternate speakers / headphones.
  • Unplug and plug the audio cables.

Thank you for the reply. I have discovered that when I switch my preference to "Speakers/ Headphones" instead of "Digital Output Device" I can once again hear my audio. I feel like an idiot. Thank you for your time.
