I have a Predator G3-571. I always put my laptop to sleep but sometimes restart if there is a problem. I put on sleep yesterday before going to bed, and now that I get up I see that my audio does not work. I plug and unplug my headphones. I try going to the device manager to uninstall and reinstall the sound driver, but all I see is the "NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM)". I really need an answer soon. How can I fix this?
When I use a driver updating app called EasyClean, it says that I have a few unplugged device drivers: (Unplugged), Realtek High Definition Audio, (Unplugged), Realtek High Definition Audio, and (Unplugged), Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST)OED. Do I update them? Why are they unplugged?
I really need help right now. I don't want to have to send it to a repair center because I use this laptop on the daily.
