    Speakers and headphones disabled!!

    Hey i'm new here and i'm really desperate! I accidentally disabled my speakers and headphones in Vista Home Premium. I tried to enable them, they aren't even listed in sound devices. I'm on a HP G60 laptop. I went to control panel, clicked on sounds. Then i got a window with 3 tabs but no speakers or headphones anywhere. The volume icon says there's no sound device installed... I'm about to freak out! Please help me

    I had the same trouble as Karem7 because I did something to get my Logitech headphones to work through the USB port. I downloaded the drivers and my sound now works through the front plug and the computer speakers but doesn't work through the USB port. When I go to the Control Panel and click on Sound I see Speakers and Dual Headphones, Independent Dual Headphones, SPDIF (Digital Out via HP Dock), and NVIDIA HDMI Output options but when I click on the Dual Headphones I can't get the computer to switch to this option. Any ideas??
