Had issues with not being able to hear anything on my likkle laptop all day and I thought it was maybe my headphones being broken or something.
There was a Windows update installing in the background and it was stopping the volume on me laptop working.
A reboot later and everything is back to normal again!
I was getting so stressed out and angry that I couldn't get the CD to play, so my in-house geek suggested a reboot which I did and it came up with a message saying it was on stage 6 of 6 of some updates, so I'm thinking it was something wrong with the audio of Windows this time.
Back to normal now though!
