    I shut down my comp one nite opened it the next and now my audio is completely gone. My computer can't detect it, says it doesnt exist and when i try and download an audio driver (i think thats what its called) it says i have no device to support it. I can see it under my services under the configuration utility (once again i think thats wut its called) but it says that status is stopped unlike everything else which has a status of running. When I lost my audio it changed the layout of my comp to what looks to be an old version of windows (dont know if thats a completely different problem) and the charger randomly stopped working. Don't know if this is all one big problem connected to each other or a couple that just happened to occur all at once. HELP!!! :(

    What make/model of computer do you have?
    What is showing in Device Manager? Do any items have a yellow exclaimation mark next to it?
    The layout may be due to graphics drivers or a resolution change. See Display control panel to change it.

    Open Services.msc console and check that the 'Windows Audio' service is running.
