    All of a sudden the sound just stopped working on my laptop (Compaq M2000). I've checked everything I can think of and still nothing. This is really pissing me off because it means no more music or DVDs. Any suggestions? :x:

    Did you check the mute button?

    Yeah, it's obvious, but it's the obvious stuff that people forget.

    if the mute is not on and the sound is turned up then reinstall the sound cards driver.

    No, headphones don't work, and no the mute button isn't on. I've tried everything I can think of. How do I reinstall the driver?

    Can anybody help? Should I just take it to those GeekSquad people at Best Buy?

    Right click the My Computer icon, click on Manage.
    Click on Device Manager.
    Scroll down to Sound, video, and game controllers.
    Right click on the sound controller (could be one of a few things, like sound drivers, legacy sound drivers, etc....should be obvious though)
    Click on update driver
    install the driver (if you don't have a cd, download it from compaq's website)

    I reinstalled all of my drivers (Even the video ones, etc.) and still nothing. Any suggestions? This laptop is only 6 months old. Wtf?
