I have deleted my audio playback device
Oh me, oh my! I am an idiot. I have windows vista ASUS K400 series laptop. I was getting interference when I connectd the laptop to my sound system to play my music. Someone suggested I turn off the mic (if it was on) and to check the audio sound in case it is up too high and that may be causng the interference. So I thought I would disable all sound........
But unintentionally (and stupidly) I deleted the audio devices instead of disabling them. So in the sound devices menu - they are not grayed out - they are just not there! Originally there were 2.
Now I have the little sound icon bottom right cnr with a X over it. I am getting windows start up sound, but if I try to play a CD it says there is a problem with the sound.
If I go into startup menu and click on sounds it says: NO AUDIO PLAYBACK DEVICE.
How do I get it back please? I tried Systems restore- no good. I tried Sounds Video and Games and clicked on High Definition Audio Device - it says it is working.
Do I have to reload my windows to start again?

Go to device manager and either refresh your hardware or have it search for new hardware. It should be automatically reinstalled.
