I'm at 10.6.8 Intel no external speakers

A couple of days ago my sound just stopped working. I can use the volume controls both on the keyboard and on the task bar, and they show that the volume is increasing or decreasing but no actual sound comes out. I recently did a software update, but I didn't notice if this problem started with that or some time afterwards.

I found this thread (http://hintsforums.macworld.com/showthread.php?t=66689) and moved my plist then restarted but it didn't turn the sound back on.

I keep my sound turned off most of the time, maybe it's just trying to get back at me ;)

Any help will be appreciated.

in the sound pref panel is there a internal speaker listed?

Yes! It was on Soundflower and I switched it to internal speakers and now it works. THANKS!

Wonder how it got switched off of that?!?!
