Okay, so, I have issues dealing with the fact that I have windows 7 installed on a 32 gig Solid State, meaning that I perpetually don't have enough space for anything, but that's not my problem, it just might be related to my problem. My problem is that I turned off my computer, and it installed updates. While doing so, I unplugged my speakers from my comp and plugged them into another computer so I could watch some TV shows while my main rig did all of its 26 updates, half of which didn't actually install. Main comp finishes, I unplug speakers, plug them back into main comp, and I no longer have a sound card. Now, technically, I never had a sound card to begin with, just the basic whatever on the motherboard, no extraneous parts involved. And my speakers are fine, they work on other devices, so it's the computer that's having an issue, and I was wondering if, in the process of installing updates, Windows managed to...I don't know...delete my sound card driver?
