Volume control bar disappeared in the windows option menu.

I also can't hear anything.

I have a Realtek built-in sound card. I've got a GA-990FXA-UD3 GIGABYTE mobo, and that's all I'd think matters.

It was working a little while ago (Yesterday) with no problems.

When I got home, the little speaker thingy on the bottom right had an error thing next to it.

So, I looked in the volume settings to check stuff out, and...






It recognizes when I plug in my headphones,



but when I click "OK," it goes back to the lonely, empty, no speaker'd room.

If you could help, that'd be swell.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Re-install your sound drivers.

    I had some specific sound drivers for this thingy that allowed me to use stereo mix, so if I could fix them any other way I could, but every recommendation I've gotten was that.

    Now I'm kinda sad, but I know you're right, and it has to be done.

    ;~;
  3. didn't work.
  4. a-anybody?
  5. can you try to roll back the driver to the day it was working?

    I also did that.

    I thought I had a computer back-up thing, but I don't.
  7. mind if I bump this again?

    I also think it has something to do with this;
