Hi,

 

Try running the automated fixit from Microsoft.  It's about half way down the page on the link below.

Let me know how it goes.

 

Best wishes,

Re: Sound Won't Work

Hi,

 

From the Control Panel, open Device Manager, click the Sound Video and Game Controllers tree.  Could you post back what devices are listed here and whether any of them have a warning icon next to them.

 

Best wishes,
