Windows 7: Sound stopped working ?!

Sound stopped working ?!

Hi,
my Win7 64 was working fine but out of nothing my sound stopped working. When I plug in my headphones, the Asus software says "back pannel jack plugged in" as it used to say before but I just have no sound.

The Windows volume control is moving and it's not muted. I tried the troubleshooting tool which did not find any issues.

The headphones work well on another computer.


Any ideas ?

Try these steps:
  1. Open Device Manager by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, and then, under System, clicking Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.*
  2. In the list of hardware categories, find the device that you want to update, and then double-click the device name.
  3. Click the Driver tab, click Update Driver, and then follow the instructions. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
