Brand new rMBP, lost audio, SMC/NVRAM resets ineffective

I just bought my 2013 MacBook Pro Retina 13" yesterday. Audio was working fine until just a little bit ago. I noticed it after I attempted to do a restart, the computer hung, for stuck, so I forced shutdown. Upon starting the computer back up, I lost all sound. I get the "dong" sound when I hit the power button, but after that, nothing. Tried resetting the SMC and NVRAM multiple times, no luck.


Any ideas?




UPDATE: Somehow during the hung restart, my audio settings were changed. I didn't touch them. Damn gremlins. Anyway, what is "Soundflower" in the audio settings?

Soundflower is very buggy in 10.8.x. I would dump it and go for something like the Audio Hijack and/or FStream for Internet Radio.

Yeah, but here is the thing. I have no idea how it got there. Is it preloaded on new MBP's? I don't even know where it is on my computer outside of the Audio Settings menu.

No it's no preloaded. You have to install it or the third party you bought it from installed it.

Then that's creepy, I didn't install it. Thanks for the info.
