Windows 7: No audio but the green sound bar on the volume control is moving?

Help

Hey my name is Shaio Fencski, I'm 13 years old and know alot about computers. The only reason a sound system would not be working is either it is sending it to another speaker that is virtual and just keeps switching or that your computer power options are turning the sound driver off, yes of course the volume moves but it moves even when a sound driver is not installed, all systems come with a sound system and all of them can be disabled, I would try to get a sound splitter and plug one end into a surround sound system or bom box or somthing, and the other end into headphones or ear buds. if both of them create sound then your computer and drivers are fine, if only 1 or none of them make sound then there is somthing really wrong with the computer, and I would suggest getting a new one.

Click run and enter "services.msc" without qoutes. Look for Windows Audio. At the left side, click Start if it is Stop, otherwise click Restart. Hope this help. Post back if it solved your problem.

Today it happened again - the sound went off and I tried that method. I opened services.msc and it said "Started" so I restarted it and it worked. What does that mean?

I can't figure out the rason yet. I'll try to examine it.

But you can do this:

Go to services.msc again. Double click Windows Audio. Please check if the Startup Type is set to Automatic. If not, please change it. Then restart the PC/Laptop. Check if it occurs again.

Yes it is set on automatic. One more thing - I have Windows audio endpoint builder. I have no idea what it is since I am nowhere near good on OS architecture. Should I check something on it too?

Just installed a brand new windows copy. Went well for 2 hours and the EXACT same problem. I was not doing anything in particular. I didn't even run windows updates just in case but the problem is here again. Why is this happening... I just don't get it.

Guys please I am desperate and I spent $100 on a HDD a few days ago for this laptop.. I don't want to buy a new one as the " 13 year old guy who knows a lot about computers" said..

P.S. The restart thing that theneves told me to use is working for about 10-20 seconds now.

Did you consider the suggestions above - by fireberd and ShaioF?

I guess the problem is your hardware. I think it is the cause of the problem, since you said that you installed a new copy of your Windows. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to hardware. I guess someone here can help.
