It sounds like the game cannot detect your sound device.
1) Disable your audio device in sound -> playback. The reenable it after restarting your computer (right click -> show disabled devices to see it) 2) Do you have an audio driver installed? If yes, try uninstalling and reinstalling it. If you just reinstalled your OS, you may need to find an audio driver for your hardware. You can look up hardware ids online (you get this from device info in device manager) to figure out the manufacturer and model and then try your luck in finding a driver for it. If the manufacturer does not have a driver available you can also search Computer OEMs for other laptops with the same hardware and if they offer a windows 7 driver install that. Also some drivers for win8/10 will work on win 7 if the driver lets you install (I had this problem trying to find a win7 wifi driver for my laptop) 2b) If this is a new OS install you also want to look for chipset drivers as it affects audio 2c) Windows might have a built in non-generic driver for your audio device that works if you cannot find a win7 driver. You need to go device manager -> update drivers and fiddle around with the wizard until it lets you select a make/model of the device (it's not select a driver from disk or look online but it's hidden under the let windows detect flow iirc). It's pretty hidden in the wizard I don't recall off the top of my head, on linux right now so I can't walk you through it. 3) Do you have a microphone port? Is it broken (eg always on/off)? I had this before, had to do some fun hackery to turn back on audio. Google is your best bet here.
Magpie: No.... NONONO! I must have had too much ale this evening and am now seeing things. After a good nights sleep I'm sure things will be back to normal... *Vein on forehead twitches.

Magpie: limith - Crikey you found the time? I thought you were still lost in Xenoblade
Jan 17, 2018 11:49:12 GMT -8
Magpie: I should possibly renew reading something, done nothing in my spare time other than binge watch the Fate series - currently on Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works

limith: I finished all three endings of Crimson Gray in less than 1 hour...I'm a speed reader.

limith: I am still working on Xenoblade. Almost done with my Bestiary sheet. Only 90% in game sidequests left to do, lol. Also can't beat most high level bosses so I gotta improve my gear sometime.

limith: Fate series is long...play Trails in the Sky series and sequel/prequels if you really want a long game
Jan 17, 2018 20:15:05 GMT -8
MrNickUniverse: Trails in the Sky is pretty long alright. I'm probably about 8 or 9 hours in and I'm still on the prologue.

Prince995: Well... if it's similar to Trails of cold Steel... be prepared to get introduced to around 10 new characters each chapter! never actually played Trails in the Sky...
Jan 18, 2018 1:26:23 GMT -8
Magpie: But I don't want anything else long else my backlog is going to get more and more depressing
Jan 19, 2018 4:14:39 GMT -8
Magpie: I did try and play trials in the sky about four years ago but I ended up dropping it, can't particularly remember the reason though
Jan 19, 2018 4:15:28 GMT -8
Prince995: I have to continue playing trails of cold steel again... i think i am atleast in the second half of it but was 50 Hours in... (i think in chapter 7 they were STILL happily introducing dozens of new characters... some even more important ones)

Magpie: I'll pass, never really been a fan of discord and each time this topic comes up the interest is never really there.
