Windows 7: Sound lost after latest NVIDIA update

Sound lost after latest NVIDIA update

Sound has been lost after installing latest NVIDIA drivers.

Sound returned for no apparent reason then lost after sleep mode. I tried uninstalling the sound driver by itself now its not returning on its own and update check doesn't know its gone. I uninstalled VIA audio or disabled it somewhere as far as I know, I don't know how to enable it again, but the sound returned briefly after that anyway.

uninstall the device from device manager in the system and security section of the control panel. Reboot; then hopefully windows will re-detect it and reinstall it properly; then reboot again and see if that solves the issue. If not post back.

Yes that worked, ! Temporarily...its gone now. This after I uninstalled the NVIDIA sound driver, which may or may not apply to my system anyway.

Just to confirm, it only worked temporarily. There still is no sound.

BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?
Greetings! I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12. There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12? Many Thanks!
