No sound from speakers

2014-01-14, 14:19 PM

My T61 suddenly went quiet ! Head phones via USB are also quiet. Checking in control panel when I "test" speakers I can see movement from both speakers but no sound. Same in checking on Skype r show movement but no sound. Now here is where it gets weird Someone suggested I boot into Unbuntu so I did that and while it was sitting idle with just the desktop showing I hear the Skype tone and the callers name very clearly ! I feel an MS update is the cause but which one? I have no idea when this happened!! I have W7 and IE 11. I also have a FF browser but no sound in that either. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!
