Hello! This is VERY important! I need help ASAP ! Theres a problem with my sound. I can't play videos or music and any sound effects play static instead. Like static from the radio when it's not working or something. People tell me it's the issue of my earphones being plugged in, but no. I unplugged them and still nothing plays but static. I tried doing mostly anything that came at me. I don't really understand much of the Control Panel so if you're gonna give me advice I advise that you be specific; if you don't mind :). How this problem came up was when I was using Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 and when I hit play, it wouldn't play and a message would pop up saying, "Microsoft Sound Mapper does not exist" or something along the lines of that. So I thought it was just another stupid glitch from editing too long and restarted my computer. The message stopped popping up, but now nothing plays but that static. I'm very concerned about my computer, it's stupid, I know. My mom wouldn't allow me to get another and if I tell her about this, she's probably going to freak out, give me one of the famous "asian lectures" or nag me about how she won't take it to the Computer Shop to have it checked out. So I'm trying to fix it beforehand. I'm on the verge of literally giving up on this, but I know I won't because I really do love my computer xD. Please, please, please! If you have a suggestion for me please tell me below ASAP!
