    This seems to be my week for mysteries.

    Last evening, I noticed I was not getting sound from my speakers... nothing... systems sounds, MP3's, etc. I checked the obvious things like volume control, mute, etc. All good.

    This morning, after a reboot, same thing.

    If I play something and crank the volume WAY up, I can faintly hear it.

    I've checked everything I know to, but feel I'm missing something. This change happened abruptly with no other changes. I would think that if the sound card went south, I would hear absolutely nothing. This is like a level setting thing... that I can't find.

    Ideas appreciated.

    Solved!

    I did a complete power down / power up and all is well now.

    Must have been some sort of reset.

    Wish I had a more technical answer than that.

    Oh, well...
