No sound on laptop speaker

Two days ago it was working.Yesterday I turned it on no sound.I found my headphones today and they work.There is a red speaker icon above the key pad that I think means the speaker is muted.When I tap on that icon a volume scale appears on the screen.Tap it ,sound off ,tap it again sound on(I have volume set at 100%)The red speaker icon stays on no matter how many times I tap it.The scale on the screen says it turning on and off,the red icon says its not.It does turn off and on the headphones.I cant remember when was the last time I used headphones on this computer that is almost 3 years old.

Since this recently happened, two things to try.
1. Use the System Restore and restore the PC back to a date when it worked OK. If that does not work, System Restore has an "undo" option to undo the System Restore.

2. If the System Restore does not work, Uninstall the sound in the Device Manager - RIGHT Click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT Click "Uninstall". DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

Didn't try to restore,lost all but one restore point late Sat.(I don't know how I managed to do that) I uninstalled the 2 parts of the sound control,it works now.Thanks a lot. By the way,3 years ago I didn't know how to turn on a computer,much less all the stuff I tried over the last 2 or 3 days.Thanks again
