I was using my computer today when the sound just disappeared. I have had this problem before and solved it but i've forgotten what i did to fix it. the only program that still has sound is skype. Any help will be appreciated

i already did. The sound played ok one second and was gone the next. the sound is ok when i make calls with skype but there is nothing more than that

exactly... dot on the spot!

hi, what sound card are you using ATI, Creative or what?

if using built-in audio what audio controller?

try to go control panel, then click on sound and audio devices.. under audio tab check the "default device"

THanks a million...that did it. The default device was set to bluetooth handsfree instead of the pc speakers.

good to hear.. your problem was solved ;)

Haaha I know,it happened to me few times as well:)
