Audio not functioning




I have recently come across a large number of computers with a similar issue: No Sound from the speakers if a laptop or any of the jacks if desktop or laptopheadphones I have found a solution to this problem which has worked every time in my case. The instructions are as follows:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt by right clicking on the start menu entry and selecting "run as administrator".
  2. Type "net localgroup Administrators /add networkservice" and press enter
  3. Type "net localgroup Administrators /add localservice" and press enter
  4. Type "exit" and press enter to close the command prompt
  5. Now Restart the computer and you should have audio again.

It apparently was broken by someone pushing the printer back on a desk into a wall with a bit too much force.
