Windows 7: Enabled sound threw tv, now computer speakers wont work

Enabled sound threw tv, now computer speakers wont work

Hello, this is my first post
I was trying to watch a video on youtube one night, and the sound was not loud enough, so I changed my audio device from my pc speakers to my tv, I use for a monitor. Now I cannot enable sound on my pc speakers, in fact they are nowhere to be found in my audio devices....all I can think is, what the....? In my task bar the soundmax icon has a red circle with a slash through it, and says (no soundmax audio device...you cannot use soundmax audio settings). I try to open soundmax, and it will not open. I don't know what to think about this, all I did was change audio devices, which I have done several times with no issue. I know my pc is old, but this is probably gonna be my last straw! I am so sick and tired of all the windows glitches, and errors, I am about to jump into a Mac faster then you can say "windows sucks"
So, can anyone help with this latest of many errors I am experiencing?

How did you change audio devices? In most cases when HDMI is used Windows automatically switches the sound to from "Speakers" (PC audio) to HDMI.

Mac's are OK, but I see a lot of posts of problems related to Mac's on recording forums. Also 3 times the price for equivalent hardware (and many times less). I had a PC I built with a Q6600 and an Intel DP35DP motherboard. Can't say I didn't have problems. I now have a system I built with an i7 3770 and an ASRock motherboard, originally on Win 7 and it is now on Win10 and hardware is still 100% compatible.

I just changed it through the hardware and sound, and manage audio devices. After it was changed, my pc speaker icon totally disappeared.

You could also try a System Restore with an available restore date that is BEFORE you did the change.
