Default All of a sudden no sound(Acer laptop and vista)

as title really, the laptop is about 1-2 years old i guess, sound was working fine before, and it wasnt dropped/knocked, it just randomly stopped working.

Checked the sound options to see if any of the sliders are right down, but everything seems fine.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Dropping it is never good. This shall be hardware related. Is this on the sound I/O, or the internal speakers?

You didnt read it properly, i said it WAS NOT dropped or knocked, it just stopped working for no reason.

I also failed to mention that it started to work after putting a cd in the cd drive.

And its the internal speakers

That is strange. I can't think of a solution atm.

Does this happen in Windows or media players?
