    I installed a bluetooth software Called BlueSoleil ..it showed me a couple of warnings while installing saying windows cannot varify the software but i ignored those and went through with the isntallation..and after restarting i noticed that the sound wasnt working anymore..not for music, videos, system or anything.. i uninstalled the bluetooth software but the problem is still here..can someone please help me? im using windows vista ultimate and im 100% sure its a software problem not a hardware one.

    I am going to take a guess here as I cannot test it just now.

    I think that Blue Soleil has set up a new blue tooth sound device for headphones perhaps.
    It has now set the default sound playback device to be this new one, so your previous speakers etc. do not work.

    Go into control panel/sounds and check the default sound playback device.

    You'll need to find the correct drivers for your sound card and re-install them.
