I've got no clue why, but my Lenovo B590 running Windows 8
suddenly won't play back any other audio than the ASIO-sound
from the Cuebase program.

Firefox, VLC, Windows Movie Player etc stay dead silent, although
all concerned devices say "working properly" in the Device Manager.
Realtek HD Audio Manager also says everything ought to be up to

Goddammit...movies, youtubes, hockey, notification sounds, .wav:s and
mp3:s - I need my sound back..!


What do I do?

(Yup, been through all the standard troubleshooting...to no avail...)

Oh...never mind - fixed it on my jolly lonesome!


Not bad for a total 'puter unwizard.


Strange...no idea what happened - did nothing to cause it.

Went to Control Panel->Adminstrative Tools->Services ->Windows Audio and clicked on "restart"...and now it works again.


Bloody strange...don't tell me computers don't have a totally invisible, unpredictable inner life 13.gif

My laptop audio card has on and off problems, they really aren't very high quality. The newest one has only one jack, I'm not crazy about it.

It's just so darn weird - I did absolutely nothing out of the ordinary.
The thing just fell dead silent all of a random sudden.


I hope other hi-tech doesn't get that sort of glitches.
Like the Nuclear Launch systems of certain nations, and stuff like that hiding.gif
