Windows 7, Motherboard with integrated sound: ECS RC410-M (Alhena) Symptom: Windows, dxdiag, and every other diagnostic I have used thinks the sound is working. Media players run successfully, except that no sound comes out of my speakers. I have tried multiple speakers, so the problem is with the computer. It had been working fine, then I didn't use this computer for several months, since December of 2011. A few days ago, I set everything up in a new place, sound was still working. Then Windows Update does its magic, and I have no sound. I have tried re-installing drivers (realtek hd for 32 bit, and then several other realtek drivers to be on the safe side). I have looked for several days through other forums, but none that I have seen have exactly my problem. I would very much appreciate any help!
