Toshiba Satellite Laptop --- no sound??

Toshiba Satellite Laptop model A15-S127

The sound was working find until a couple of days ago. Now no sound. I have checked all of the volume control settings and all seem to be ok. No sound from videos on news site or from cd using media player.

Any ideas or suggestions where to look next? How can I narrow it down to the card? Does this laptop have a seperate card for sound?

Thanks

Sorry if this is obvious, but in addition to the software controls there is a small thumbwheel volume control on the side. Mine is in a position where it gets moved by handling the case.

Don't be sorry about stating the obvious. I was totally unaware of this knob. It was the cause. Thanks. I try very hard to check the obvious but sometimes you just miss something. Thanks.

Your next discovery will be the wifi switch.

Someday the wireless won't work, and you will spend hours troubleshooting until you happen to notice that stupid slide switch on the side of the case that shuts off the wireless card. (No, wait ... that was me!)
