    Audio Not Working


    Hello,


    Recently in the past few months my computer has had an issue where the sound was working just fine then it would start to fizzle and eventually stop working altogether. Whenever I try to adjust the volume it freezes and doesn't do anything, and eventually I get the red X with the message "No speakers or headphones are plugged in". I tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling them, downloaded the most recent updates and drivers, but nothing works. Sometimes it just miraculously returns for a few hours then stops working again. Troubleshooter just tells me to plug in, which obviously isn't the issue. Now the realtek audio driver is unable to start, and dxdiag brings up the error "No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer." My computer is a Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 5577. I've spent three weeks trying to fix this issue using various methods found online, but nothing has worked.

    :)
