'Realtek AC97 Sound isn't working! [Solved]

Yorkie59 - Latest answer on Jun 26, 2010 04:18PM
Hello,
My sound was working fine to begin with, i wanted to get my mic working so i changed around the sound settings to get it working, sound was fine, and my mic work fine. However i can't remember when but my sound has just disapeared, i don't seem to have any sound anymore. I have checked the sound settings thousands of times, none on mute, all set to my laptop 'Realtek AC97 Audio' etc yet no success. When i restart my laptop it makes the beep when it boots up so it isn't to do with my speakers, its my settings. I think i know what the problem is, but im not sure what to do. When i was changing the settings around i changed 'Sound Scheme' i now have 'Windows default', 'Sound scheme' and 'no sound' in the drop down bar. Im quite certain its because i lost my original scheme. Any suggesstions on what i can do?
Thanks,

if u havent got System Hardware go into performance + maintance, Click on System - system properties should pop up, click on Hardware then Device manager. scroll down to sound, video and game crontrollers, then follow above steps!

hi,
where it's written "sound scheme", just leave it blank!
if this does not solve the problem, you can perfom a system restore.
