Default No sound on my laptop

Hey, I'm getting nothing from the speakers on my Compaq Armada E500, or from the headphones. Nothing is muted, nothing changes when I raise or lower the volume. Any idea what's wrong? Thanks.

Have you tried lowering the sound acceleration?

How would I go about doing that?

**edit** Ok, did that, but with no effect.

Try updating your Sound Card Drivers see if that helps

Go to Control Panel -> System

Find the Sound Card, and right-click on it and select "update driver"

Already got the latest one apparently. This is driving me nuts.

I tried the headphones again and I can hear a buzzing that goes up and down with the volume.
