It turns out the problem for this error lies in the Windows Audio

Upon checking under the Hardware section via the System
Properties, we found a couple of yellow exclamation points next
to Multimedia Audio Controller. Now this issue would have been easy to fix
if the computer had a separate sound card installed and would have simply
involved downloading and re-installing the latest drive for the card. Sometimes
the driver becomes corrupt and the sound disappears. In this case, just go to
Dell, HP, or your manufacture’s web site and download the audio drivers.
However, if your sound card is integrated into your motherboard, you’ll
have to re-install the motherboard sound drivers. This is a little trickier
because you need to first find the make and model of your motherboard. You can
figure out the model of your motherboard in three ways:
1. Open the computer and find the sticker or embedded name of the
manufacturer. Be sure it’s not the maker of the chipset, as that will not help.
3. Belarc Advisor – Another nifty little app that will
give you a crap load of information about your computer including the
Once you have the model information, you’ll need to perform a search
for the number or try to go to the web site of the maker. Find your driver,
install it and restart the computer. You should now have your sound back!
