Interesting. Is this a laptop and did you suspend?
Try resetting your pulse configuration.
Using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"


rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.asound* ~/.pulse-cookie
sudo rm /etc/asound.conf
Logout/in.

Hmmmm. Are the files you are trying to remove actually there? When you go to your home directory and type Ctrl-H, do the .pulse .asound and .pulse-cookie files show up?

What's happening is you are trying to remove files that were never there to begin with so lidex's solution may not work for you. Try restarting your computer anyway and see if you have sound. If not, then the problem may be with your sound card driver. What sound card are you using?

If your sound card is a pci sound card, type "lspci" in a command prompt and see if your sound card is listed.

thanks a bunch! worked like a charm, though the .asound dir is not existing on mine, just deleting the .pulse dir seemed to work for me. :KS:KS
now the audio is back! :D

i wonder why it stopped working all of a sudden. maybe due to corrupt files?
