Disabled Audio, how to fix?

Last night i was trying to get my USB headset to work and i accidentally disabled my sound cards audio. i was wondering what was the best way to recover the driver? (it does not show up in playback devices or device manager) and also how to do a system restore on windows 7?

Thanks for any help
