VAIO VGN CR120E: I'm having audio trouble. Beep sounds at startup but I don't get any sound afterwards. Mute is off, I've restarted Windows Audio service, and I've reinstalled my sound drivers. Still no sound. Any suggestions?


Hi ivelasco_iv,

Audio in this Computer Model may not work properly after installing Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). It is required to install the BIOS Update version R0231Q0 in the Computer to fix this issue.

You can download the BIOS Update from the below link.

ftp://download.sony.com/US/pc/PHBSYS-16124100-US.EXE

IMPORTANT: Before installing the BIOS Update, please make sure that the Computer is connected to AC Power. During the installation of this update, please do not turn off the Computer, do not allow the Computer to enter standby or Hibernation states, do not start other programs and do not connect any peripherals.

Please download and save the file to the Computer, after that please open the folder where the file was download and double click the file to begin the installation. Please follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation. After the installation the Computer will restart automatically.

Installing this BIOS Update should fix the Audio issue in the Computer.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.
