I have Realtek High Definition Audio device and sound stopped playing. So I went to Gateway website and updated driver. Realtek site advised best to use manufacturer site to find drviers. I did this because all free driver scan said my driver was outdated.
I checked control panel and device is working put when go to sound tab to select and test sound, no sound. So I looked in a few forums and decided to give permissions for driver. Still no sound, Napster gives error sound device may not be working or in use.
The device is showing up in tool bar as unmuted with high volume. It is now plugged in correctly.
What else can I do this is what system information tool has
