Does it have anything to do with your computer switching the playback device when some sort of recording device is plugged in?

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

for me, it was a registry deal. it might just be the same thing that's happening to you. follow these steps.

1. Launch Registry Editor by typing regedit at Run command.
2. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32

3. On the right pane, and check for existance of “wavemapper” registry subkey, the mail culprit causing no sound. If not found, create a new String value named “wavemapper”, and give the entry value “msacm32.drv”.

If wavemapper entry is already existed, ensure that its value data is “msacm32.drv”.

i hope that works... also, it might be something with the drivers to your sound card.

Sounds to me like you've just turned the volume down on some program. Check all the levels.

well ****, my desktop did the same thing. then after days/weeks later it began to **** up alot and then lasty crashed. (i hate limewire). then i bout a laptop

but i dont think that's your situation. before my computer crashed the sound did not work. I fixed it by going to control panel and going to sounds ( or speakers i think), look something thats relative to sounds. check everything it working properly. and if it is click a some other sound program, so your computer can operate through it. i think if you have Windows XP it should say something like Microsoft, or speaker. i think under program select something different and the restart your compu. then it should work. if not take it to a technician to try what i told you over again.
