Major updates like 2004 often reinstall drivers (sometimes upgrading or downgrading them) and change their configurations to what Windows wants to be the defaults.

Use the Device Manager to check for driver versions and warnings for hardware that is not working as it did before.

Use the Sound Control Panel to make sure the playback devices, recording devices, sound schemes, and communications settings are selected and configured the way you need them to be. You may need to also re-select the output and recording devices in your apps.

After update 2004 reinstalled my sound device drivers, I had to re-select the correct output device for Winamp before it would play music again.

After you get your sound devices working again, I suggest you check the configurations of all your other hardware devices. After this happened to me a couple of times, I now keep a list of all my settings so I can quickly get things back to normal.

Winamp Pro v5.666.3516 fully-patched - Quinto Black CT v3.1 skin
Windows 10 Home 64-bit v20H2 desktop - Logitech Z906 5.1 speaker system
