Ever since I began fixing my virus problems the sound has quit working on my computer. I thought it might be something to do with the drivers so I reinstalled those, that didn't fix anything though. I've checked to make sure that the speakers are plugged in properly and turned on, which they are. When I Checked the multimedia portion of the control panel the Audio portion is greyed out and inaccesable, also volume controls do not appear on the system tray. What else can I try short of a factory reset, and what if even that doesn't work?

Have you checked to see that the sound card in recognised in the Device Manager?

Have you made any hardware changes lately? Even something is small as just moving a card to a different slot?

Heh, this pc has on board sound, it's a d*** dinosaur. Anyway, I went ahead with the factory reset and the problem is no more. I guess I'll never know what it was but at least I've got sound again.
