Hi and welcome

It is probably the game that it grabbing the sound card and not releasing it. If you quit the game does the sound begin to work again?

If not it might be a driver problem. You can check this by typing device manager in search. go to the sound card. Is your card listed? does it have a yellow triangle on it? Are there any other "unknown devices" with yellow on them?


let us know

After several Hours with 4 Windows Techs...

I had a laundry list of problems including no sound, no backup, no internet, no ready boost, no security, etc... after an aborted program installation and a bad Windows shutdown

There are at least 4 component services required for recognition of hardware and drivers for sound to operate!

If you can, create a restore point before proceeding.
See http://www.blackviper.com/Windows_7/servicecfg.htm for additional information about services settings.

Start---execute on command line "service.msc"
Or
Start--All Programs
Administrative Tools--
Component Services---Services (local) [maximize window]

Inspect the list of component services (screens of them). Select disabled services one-by-one, reset Startup Type to "automatic" (a few won't allow this or will reset properly at reboot). You can attempt to start each service as they are activated (some are dependent on other services, view with tab of dialog) or reboot after all are activated.

I had about 3/4 of the services disabled. Took about 3/4 hour to reactivate. Results were pleasing to the eye and effort!

Zigzag3143, thx...I found out that there is no problem with the sound card...probaly is the game...but when I'm playng and the sound grabs, I quit it but still all the sounds of the windows and music programs stop...only rebooting gets it back...But I think it's the game, before I started playing it I had no sound problems.
