My computer starting having problems a few days ago with the sound. I usually use external speakers with my laptop, and there's never been an issue, but a few days ago, the sound just completely stopped coming from my computer with or without external speakers.
I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the audio drivers for realtek audio, and I ended up getting sound back. But now, when I close the lid of my laptop (goes to sleep), and come back to do work, the sound is gone again. I have to restart my computer in order for there to be sound.
I tried scanning for new driver updates again, but nothing came up, so I'm assuming there must be some issue with my sound card?
Anyone have similar problems or permanent solutions? Thanks
