    Accidentally disabled my speakers

    In the sound pop up from the control panel I was trying to change the default
    speaker, but accidentally disabled it. Now the speaker has disappered from
    the playback devices tab and I cannot get any sound out of my speakers.
    Q. How do I enable my speakers again?

    PS. Its a laptop, so I think it's the internal speakers I've disabled

    Have you tried reverting the system to a System Restore point to a date
    prior to your problem?

    I think you meant the popup from the task bar or system tray. So, open
    Control Panel, Look for the audio controls for your sound system, and open
    it. You should be able to adjust just about anything. Also, some laptops
    have a Fn key combination to mute the speakers, make sure you check that and
    that they are not muted.

    Good luck.

    I'm having a similar problem, but none of these solutions appears to work. When I go to the sound settings on the control panel, it simply reads "no audio devices installed." There are no devices to click on to install. When I right click the sound icon in the system tray there is no option for enabling or reinstalling audio devices.
