I keep losing my sound. On device manager there is no sound, video games option. On the speaker icon at the bottom there is a cross and says no audio output device is installed. I have reinstalled windows 7 again and I get back the sound but after a few days I have lost it again. I tried to reinstall the driver but to no avail.

Can anyone suggest anything.

Thanks

Just found the solution. It was NVIDIA nForce AR Chipset HP driver that needed to be installed. Apparently that controls the built in sound device
