    Howdy,

    If this a recent occurrence the you can try System Restore to a date when the sound was working

    Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

    Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore

    • Click in the radio button Restore My Computer to An Earlier Time
    • Click Next
    • Pick a Date in Dark Blue only (pick a date to before you installed All-In-One)
    • Click Next
    • Then Next again.
    This should restore the PC to that time & date

    It will update and restart
