Why is there no sound coming from my laptop?
When I bought my laptop, it had wonderful sound, but after using it for a while, the sound stopped working. What happened, and how do I fix it?
If sound has stopped working there are few tips you can try.
At first, Make sure that Audio Devices are enabled on your Windows 8 PC. You will have to go through volume icon beside notification area on taskbar and right click on the icon. Further Click on Playback Devices and enable through properties menu box.
If issue is fixed then it is OK, otherwise Update Audio Device Drivers.
If you have set auto install for Windows update on your windows 8 PC the drivers will be updated automatically. After setting never check for updates your Windows couldn't install the updates coming from Microsoft. In this situation go to Device manager and update the Device driver manually thanks
Kevin Yang, check in your device manager and verify the status of your audio device. Reinstall your driver and see what you get then. Also, attach some external speakers and see if you still have sound.

After a Realtek MEDIA driver windows update no sound anymore on my Asus K53SV (Windows 7 - 64) - dreaded red cross where the speaker icon should be. 3 days insanely looking for a solution, reinstalling Realtek drivers, tried all the official Asus versions, also versions directly downloaded from Realtek.
Hotkeys neither working anymore, reinstalled ATK drivers package, but didn't work either (solved by letting run "C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey\HControl.exe" under XP compatibility mode).
The REAL SOLUTION to the problem finally found here:
The solution is for Windows 10, but the problem was exactly the same for my Windows 7 installation: not enough rights in the registry on
Gave "User" full control rights, reboot and problem solved!
It can be something to do with your sound drivers or the sound controllers.
Why don't you try uninstalling those drivers and reinstalling and also check the audio settings and play with the devices selected in there.
I had this problem and went thru all the answers online... then I went into control panel, sounds... and found the sound was turned off for Chrome... turned it back on and solved the problem... I think an update turned it off because it had been working properly before I updated on Windows 8 .
