volume goes up, and then drops back down to zero

hey guys,
i need help real bad! i've tried everything, and all websites and have nothing..
Essentially I just closed my laptop last night and set it down. Today when I opened it, the volume was at zero, and when i press the volume button on my laptop to make it go up, it goes up as long as i keep pressing it, and then as soon as i let go, it drops down to zero again..
so essentially i have no volume..

and in general my cmputer has been kind of glitching today. I ran my antivirus but that didn't help at all..

any advice, suggestions, help?

much appreciated!

Well that generally fixes this kind of volume problem, and is the only one I'm currently aware of, hopefully one of the more seasoned guys will drop by and give you more options.

Something may have just gotten stuck in the resume data when you put it to sleep.
Glad you are sorted.
