"I have tried all the usual ways to get it back"

Including a check in device manager, to see that there are no problems indicated there?

Has your daughter installed any new software recently?

Presumably you have checked the speakers, including any transformer that runs them?

I tried device manager and the fix it from microsoft, all to no avail. There are no yellow symbols or error messages anywhere, which is the baffling part. It tells me at every turn that the system is working properly. I have discovered since my original post that the microphone is not registering either. It looks as if something has been turned off by design, but I cannot fathom what.

in control panel/sounds/devices. make sure it is selected from the drop down list. if it is just try reinstalling the driver for it.

ps i had that once, it was a extension plug that needed wiggling
