I doubt it, if you got hacked the sound would be the last thing they are worried about. Some programs will disable sound cards and such to install drivers. Probably nothing to worry about if it is working again.

If all else fails, uninstall your sound (card or codex) and let Windows detect it and put the drivers back in place.

I've had this happen when I uninstalled "shared folders" before.
