Windows 7: Not Receiving Any Sound

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Not Receiving Any Sound

Well.. that's just it.

I'll play YouTube iTunes Windows Media Player anything. Nothing comes up. It's like the system doesn't even recognize sound is coming from anywhere.

That's the chrome bar playing 3 videos on full sound at once.

My sound devices are both enabled as well:

This happened within the last 3 days, and I can't think of anything I have done to cause it.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the Realtek to highlight it and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will fix any Windows corruptions.
