    Use the time machine to reset the computer to the last backup when it did work.

    Sorry, that was the wrong tech support answer... Did you turn it off then on?

    Nailed it.

    Run a check for updates. If you need to DL the driver you will need to know what sound card you have. What kind of computer? Apple has a way to boot to safe mode and scan the disk for problems. It usually repairs them if it finds broken codes, programs, etc. Might be worth running a virus scan if you have one, or Malwarebytes to see if you have a virus, adware, etc.

    Yep, I just had this happen to my HP laptop for the second time Thursday.

    You will need to download the Audio drivers again (~250Mb). This will get you to the drivers you need:
