    SIW2, I think I'm getting much closer now the red X is no longer on my speaker in the tray, I'm not quite there yet but I do have a volume slider there now and I can see an indication of sound. I'm looking as services.msc again now. Edit Fixed was able to make a change to the default in the control panel. SIW2 you are the winner, I can not thank you enough I'm hearing sound now

    Hey, I'm also having the same problem regarding no sound and my registry looks the exact same as this...I'm just wondering what exactly do I have to delete here...

    As SIW2 sais "Where it says RequiredPrivileges in your screenie - delete them all except the first one" but I can only see one that sais RequiredPrivleges…

    Any help would be much appreciated...
