For some reason I can not hear any sound coming from my laptop speaker or
from my headphones when I plug them into the audio jack.

I have reloaded C:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe, then opened volume control,
made sure nothing is set to mute, turned the volume gages to full, still
nothing.

I am not sure what has happened but last week I could listen to cd's and
turn on
Media player and listen to radio stations. This week nothing! I have gone to
the
control panel and run help / fix , done a restore to an earlier date,,,
still not
luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Restoring may help, but it may also make things worse (as in "if it ain't
broke, don't fix it"). And "haste makes waste".

In these cases it is vital to remember, what could be the difference(s)
between the situations. And unfortunately, multimedia is very tricky.
An example I tried while writing this is: switching the default audio output
from the sound card to Bluetooth. I don't have a Bluetooth audio device, so
everything went as planned, yet without any audible sound. I reset the
device to the sound card - and I had sound again...
