  2. After crashing, audio stopped working

    Hi!

    Today I was using my Lenovo laptop and it suddenly crashed. Afterwards, when it turned back on, the sound suddenly stopped working. I tried many proposals from other related posts such as unistalling drivers, updating drivers, checking if windows audio is running in Services and is set on Automatic; running troubleshooter, etc. but the sound is still not working.

    Thank you for your help and suggestions!
