Help with sound!

Okay, so yesterday, my mic wasn't working but I know it's built in, so I was messing with the audio settings.

Today, I plugged in my head phones, and no sound comes out of my speakers or my headphones anymore. I went to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices... and now everytime I try to click on the sound, it freezes. Please help.

Welcome!

Check in Device Manager (devmgmt.msc into the start menu), in the Sound, video and game controllers section. Right-click on your card, and could you please post a screenshot of your General and Driver tabs?

Also, could you please upload your msinfo32 file?

I got it fixed, actually. Thank you, though! I had disabled something that made it not work.

Thanks for the report, glad it's working now.

What was the setting, out of curiosity?
