Hi aralopez90! Welcome to G2G!

Go to START-->RUN and type devmgmt.msc. In the new window that appears, check and see if any items have a yellow exclamation/question mark next to them.

Looks like you need to install the Audio Driver for your computer. What is the make/model of your computer?

THank you so much I click on the yellow question mark and click on where it said to reinstalled and got my sound back , Thank you I had someone come in and see it yesterday and he had advice to buy a new sound card, it was going to cost alomost 50 dollars to get the card and get it installed, Thank You so much, also that person that came in did a system restore point going to Start/Run and DX Diag. Is there any way I can reverse that but without eraising the sound again because alot of the new updates I had got erased since the system when back to how it was back in May

Glad to see you got your sound back! :)

I wouldn't worry about the restore that person did as long as you are not experiencing any other ill-effects because of it.

*EDIT* -- Just go get those Windows Updates again and they will reinstall.
