Having problems with your HP Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

My sound has a red x

\015 I believe after i either updated my windows or after i installed the software for my blackberry, my sound stopped working. It has a red and white x over the sound on the bottom right corner. I have gone to the control panel--hardware and sound--device manager--and then i have scanned for hardware changes and still nothing..\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

You might of just muted the sound actually. When there's an x with a circle around it, usually the sound is muted. Whether it was muted from your keyboard or muted from right clicking and selecting the properties. Try un-muting it.
