I've got REaltek audio on my XP machine. Last night, my speakers were working fine, then all of a sudden no sound came out. I checked my device and whether anything was muted and my settings appeared to be fine. Speakers still don't work, however, my USB headphones produce sound. Help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most USB headphones have a built in sound card chip. SO I would look at uninstalling the realtek and reinstalling the drivers. See if that helps.
