Both Laptop Speakers Go Mute?
About a week ago, I was playing music in my car through my laptop that was sitting on the passenger's seat. All of a sudden, the music stopped and there was no sound. Things had been going fine until I was playing music yesterday and the music stopped once again. It began also happening on YouTube videos and pretty much anywhere sound was supposed to be playing. Even testing the speakers using the Windows settings doesn't work. What I do is just pause whatever is playing, and come back and check the sound a few minutes/seconds later and it seems to come right back up as before.
I thought that maybe my speakers were going out, but that seems odd that both would go out at the exact same time. I bought some newer speakers to install just in case, but I'm wondering if it's something else as that seems really strange for both to go out at once. Or is that common for laptops to do?
The computer realizes that sound is still being played as can be seen in the monitor that shows sounds that are supposed to be played so it's not as if it's muted it or something.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L755 if anyone is curious.
