Acer Aspire laptop stuck in mute (no sound). I've done it all already; Clicked speaker on taskbar; went thru all that numerous times. FN F8 does nothing. Uninstalled audio, restarted, no change. If I hold the up arrow key, the speakers work. Let it go, and down to zero it goes. Changed drivers. Unplugged battery. You name it, I've done it. Can't find any other app or program in mute. Turned on/off microphone. No change. Went to "sound" a dozen times, and it keeps saying to raise the slider volume. Duh! It won't let me. Just started this 3 days ago. No updates have come in. Device Manager says everything is fine. I need help BEYOND the obvious stuff! 

Note: The sound card and speakers DO work. It just wont come off mute. 

Any NEW ideas would be helpful!!!!
