Windows 7
Sound Issue - Help ASAP!! :(

Today all sound stopped working for this computer quite randomly. The last thing I was doing was browsing facebook and I did click a rather suspicious link by accident. Things I have tried so far:

Checked For Mute
Rebooted Multiple Times
Checked All Wires
Full Virus and Malware Scan
Correct Playback Device Is Selected (and showing active audio levels)
System Restored To Prior Day
Tried Speakers On Different Computer (they work fine)
Uninstalled Audio Driver And Rebooted
Updated Graphics Driver (cuz hey why not)

Any idea?

Please fill in the "My System Specs" so we know what hardware you have.

Also what did you do that "fixed it"?

Depending on what audio hardware you have, e.g. on the motherboard or an added sound card will determine next step. But, without some system info we can only guess.

I agree; i think we need to know a bit more about your system to determine the next potential step(s).

Try using the Playing Audio troubleshooter to fix the problem. It checks for common problems with your volume settings, your sound card or driver, and your speakers or headphones.

Open the Playing Audio troubleshooter by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under Hardware and Sound, click Troubleshoot audio playback.* If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
