volume mixer and sound completely f*cked up

#1
it just happened out of nowhere. my sound was working fine last night, then this morning I played a video and there was no sound. I clicked the volume icon in the task bar to see if I could hear the 'ping' when you adjust volume but it repeatedly froze and crashed (it's still doing this now after rebooting). Sound in control panel also crashes first thing when I try to open it. what the eff is going on? I want my sound back.

Hi

Try remove your sound card in Device Manager and reboot.
This will force Windows to identify the card and install the drivers for it.

If it's just a corrupted file or something like that this should fix it.

You could also just try and update your sound drivers.
