Hello guys this will be my first post, since I've never been this desperate before. (I havent tried to restart it yet though)

This may be a little long but please help.

As the title, MBP suddenly stopped making any sound(including iTunes, internet videos, even system sounds)

I searched Google for it, yet I couldn't find any post related to mine since my volume icon is not invisible or grayed out. Its like,


System Preferences/Sound


I tried everything even I choose the input as the output (then the music came out of the input, that means there's no problem about the input, but also that may mean there's a problem in output... But it was unexpected and instant?) but there's still no sound! Please help... :(

I thought it couldnt be solved by restarting the computer, its solved.
Sorry, I took your time but do you know any reasons why this happened?

I don't think there's a real reason for it. Sometimes things happen which are reallt temporary and just take an SMC reset or restart to fix. Be glad it wasn't a reinstall OS issue.
