Hi, recently my dad's laptop has gotten even worse. It's gradually been destroying itself after he finished paying for it but now the sound's gone nuts. It plays system sounds and he can play things in Windows Media Player and hear it but when you double click the volume icon it says there's no audio devices. One thing that comes to mind is drivers but i don't have access to his pc that often and he still thinks i don't know what i'm doing so i'll break it even more, even though i've proven myself enough times :evil: I've checked device manager and there's no conflicts in the sound and multimedia etc group and it says the device is working ok. If anyone knows how to fix this problem then any help would be much appreciated.
