No sound coming from speakers, headphones OK

Since yesterday sound has stopped coming from my laptop speakers, when i plug my earphones in sound comes from through the earphones.

Additionally when i click the volume control for the earphones sound will come through the speakers for a just few seconds before going silent again.

Ive uploaded screenshots to my skydrive to show what I mean by 'click the volume control for the earphones' as well as other images of my sound options

Anyone help?

Question, if you actually disable the headphones in playback devices will the speakers kick on?

Having done nothing consciously to fix the problem it has suddenly started to work again.

All I have done is had a video chat with someone via QQ and internet browse

*edit* video chat was a one way thing as I had no earphones in. Me talk, other person type.

No sound coming from speakers/headphones
Hi everyone, I bought a new computer recently and the sound doesn't seem to be working. I've tried updating the drivers, restarting the PC, downloading Windows Updates and none of them seem to work. If anyone has a fix for this I'd be very grateful.
