    Hello, I need some help here. I tried Toshiba Virtual Surround on my notebook and sound was totally muted after install. Ok, propably unsupported by my pc. Uninstalled, restarted, and still no sound... Sound device is shown in Device Manager. Even reinstalled my sound device drivers, but nothing! And now my pc doesn't play sound at all.

    Before I end up to a format and, hoping that my sound card is alright, any thing that I may missing? Any solution?

    My sound card is a VIA Vinyl AC'97 Audio.
