The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??

First we need to know the EXACT make and model number of the laptop in question. Secondly the only place you should be looking for drivers for you laptop is the laptop manufacturers support website. Driver scanners really are not helpful.

Fair enough ;)! My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC, and I've had for about 4 years, so the warranty has expired. Also, the battery for it was removed once and I can't quite remember where I've put it, so it has to be plugged in to the power at all times (yeah I know, so much for a laptop).

Might I add though, that I'm pretty sure Driver Booster checks the hardware manufacturers websites to download the latest drivers. I don't think it'd make much sense otherwise.

Also, when I check the volumes bar, I can see the output of the sound changing accordingly to whatever I'm listening ( or should be listening ) to, just no actual sound comes from the speakers at all
