x230 sound disappears on normal startup, sound only remains when restarted

In the last few weeks I have noticed my laptop sound works on a normal (not restart) boot, but then it disappears. I have to restart the laptop and then it's fine. The next day I boot up from cold, same problem.

 

To clarify, on a normal boot I hear the Windows 7 startup noise, however, shortly after if I play a media file there is no sound. If I restart the laptop, everything is okay.

 

I did install some updates through System Update which I'm guessing caused it. However, I have uninstalled them all now but the problem still exists.

 

I have uninstalled my sound driver and let Windows reinstall it several times- no fix.

 

Does anyone know what this exact issue is?

 

UPDATE: Just realised when I ran System Update it did update some firmware. I wonder if that's what caused it (obviously I couldn't roll that back)

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
