  1. Hi everyone!

    so I was watching a video but then decided to take a break and put my old Dell laptop on hibernate for about a few minutes. when I came back I logged back in played the video back but then there was no sound.

    I checked if if I was just on mute. nope. on the audio tray I can see considerable activity on the volume gauge in sync to my video playing.

    I tried to connect a headset. still nothing.

    I tried connecting to my TV using a HDMI cable.... audio came out of my TV just fine

    So I stll was perplexed why I had no audio on my laptop even through the headphone jack

    I tried a system restore. still nothing

    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device.. nothing

    restarted multiple times through all of the process...

    anyone got any idea whats going on here ?
