    During the time, also check the speaker icon on your laptop. Do you see a mute sign?

    1. Open the command prompt and type rstrui.exe, press enter button. 
    2.  Now you will see the system restore window, click on next. 
    3. Select the date when the sound was working fine on your laptop and click on next. 
    4. Finally, you will reach to the option, where it will ask you for the confirmation, click on yes. 

    Now the system restores process will start. It may take some time. So you have to leave your computer free until that time. 

    Once your Asus laptop restores itself, you will get the home screen back.
