Ok so my sound was on my pc was working fine yesterday and now its not. Everything seems to be fine, device is enabled and it says its working, definitely not my speakers/amp, its not muted and the cable isn't unplugged. When playing a song through WMP the song plays fine and the graphics move. The only thing that Ive noticed is different is when I click on the little speaker in the toolbar it doesn't show the output level "jumping" up and down on the volume level bar. Can someone please help? Thanks.

I ran a system restore to a point before the problem and after my pc booted up it gave me a message saying that an unspecified error had occurred during the restore and the systems files and settings were not changed. So I tried it again at an earlier point and got the same message. After that I decided to test the audio anyways and it worked! The output level still doesn't jump as mentioned before. Weird. Also I hadn't installed any new software. But thanks guys for your help!!

It means that the problem has been partially solved.
Not Fully although..
If I were you, I would have not marked it as solved now,until the bar jumps up and down.
Some files might have got corrupted.
Try these steps:
1. Go to run by pressing the " Windows Logo + R " combination.
2. Type "cmd".
3. Again type "chkdsk /r" in the black window that comes up without the quotes

Antech is probably right that you have some disk corruption and it is not a bad idea to run chkdsk.

However you need to get System Restore working as whatever fixed the problem -- it was not SR.

chkdsk is unlikely to repair it on its own -- so you really need to turn it off, then turn it back on again to delete the entire System Restore cache and start fresh with it. This will enable you to use SR for future problems (not the present one if any remain).
