    My sound randomly stopped working today.
    I turned on my laptop (from hibernation) and noticed that sounds weren't playing.
    I have tried fiddling with everything. I restarted the Windows Audio service, and checked everything having to do with my sound card and drivers, and it says there isn't any problems. I have rebooted my computer a few times, and tried remote restore, but it hasn't fixed it.
    I haven't seen any error messages.
    I looked in event viewer, and I can't find anything that has to do with Audio.
    When I mute the sound, I can hear the static buzz sound that my speakers make stop.
    If I unmute the microphone I can hear that work through the speakers, but I still can not play any sounds from my computer.
    When I record sound with Sound Recorder, it shows the wave forms as it plays, but all I hear in the speakers is the buzz that they make when they are turned up.

    I can't think of anything that I may have done to change the Audio.

    Thanks for any help.

    I disabled the audio device and rebooted my computer.
    The sound seems to work now.
