    Sound Card not working


    I noticed that my music wasn't playing on itunes and it said that my soundcard was not working properly. When I troubleshoot the 'playing audio', it says that they could not identify the problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the RealTek HD Audio Driver and still no luck. My computer did run an update before the poblem occured and i'm guessing that's why it happened.If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    It is an hp laptop, Windows 8
    The Product # - C2M44UA#ABA
    Model # - 2000 - 2B29WM

    Edit: It actually started working for a while and then stopped again the next time I opened my computer.

    Go to device manager and check if there is a yellow exclamation mark in there.
