Why did I suddenly lose audio on my Windows computer with a Creative sound card?

I have seen this problem mentioned before, but never a solution to it. Loss of audio.

On-board sound card worked fine; and so did an update to a Creative Labs discrete card. Then, suddenly, no sound at all. All advice appreciated!
