When I turn the computer on, there's no sound. This happened after I updated Windows a couple of months ago. I found a Windows Troubleshooter that fixes the problem temporarily, until I turn the computer off. The troubleshooter is the hardware and devices troubleshooter under step 2 on this site: Troubleshooter When I run it, it says "hardware changes might not have been detected." It seems to me that my computer doesn't recognize the sound card somehow until after I run that troubleshooter.
Out of date computer
Although I try to keep things up to date, you indicated before that I needed to update a lot of things. I confess to being lost as to how to address this issue, so I could sure use your help with that.
