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?
