Failed to play test tone RRS feed

  • Question

  • I, like so many others, recently lost the sound on my computer.  After rolling back audio drivers, re-installing them, and installing the supposed "hotfix," I still have no sound.  I've come to the conclusion that the sound must have gone out after a Windows update was installed.   Did anybody take note after which update the sound went out on their computer?  I tried to do a system restore to a point a few months back, but that didn't work for some reason (maybe a Norton Internet Security conflict) so unless I can pinpoint after what update the sound went out, I guess I'm going to have to do the whole reformat and reinstall and then manually install the Windows updates.  Any ideas or suggestions re: which update could have possibly screwed up the sound?   Thanks!
