Recently my sound driver has stopped working. I am pretty sure i caused it when i shut down my computer when it wasn't starting up properly. When I click on the sound icon in task manager (has a red x over it) it troubleshoots and says hardware changes might not have been detected. I've looked in device manager and when I open sound, video, etc the only thing in it is my webcam. I have tried reinstalling the realtek driver by downloading it off of the samsung website but that hasn't worked. If anyone has any ideas I am all ears.

We need to know the computer manufacturer and model, operating system version (including service pack level), and sound card manufacturer and model (unless it is built into the computer motherboard). Also, do you see any yellow ? or ! devices in Device Manager?

Sorry, I needed to run some errands. Look in Programs and Features and uninstall the Realtek software there, then try to re-install it.

That didn't work. Is there some way i'm supposed to reinstall it like putting it under a certain folder or something?
