Out of the blue, my speakers quit working this evening... however, headphones are fine.
I reinstalled the latest driver but no change. Under Control Panel > Sound, Speakers are still selected as default Playback device.
Any ideas or suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Can be a hardware problem.
To discard any operative system problem, download a Live CD (Ubuntu) and use it to test your speakers.

I too was suspecting hardware, especially after reinstalling the driver and rebooting to no avail.
This morning though, I decided to power the unit down, and disconnect the battery to remove all power from the motherboard. After a couple of minutes, reinstalled the battery, fired it back up and walla, sound was back!
Don't know for sure whether it was powering down the unit or removing the battery but I'll take the results!
