You should be able to download a driver for free.  Go to the website for the manufacturer of your audio device.

No sound on laptop think it got deleted by mistake . how can i fix this ?


To fix audio problems, you need to find and install the latest drivers that perfectly match your audio device.

1. To find the latest audio drivers, you need to know your PC brand and model, your Windows® operating system, your audio device brand and model, and the current audio driver installed on your PC.

2. After this, you now have to start the laborious, time-consuming, and headache-inducing task of trying to find the most up-to-date audio driver and save it on your PC. And then you need to uninstall your old driver, and install the new driver you found.

3. You need to ensure that this new driver works 100% with your Windows® version and other hardware devices.

Sound and audio devices


1) Go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Audio tab
2) Check what's under "Sound playback: Default device" and "Sound recording: Default device". It these fields are grey and non-clickable, then most probably the audio card driver is missing or less probably the audio card itself is broken.
3A) If you have an original CD of your computer, motherboard, or audio card, insert the CD and install the driver from it.
3B) Or alternatively insert the CD and go to: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Hardware > Device Manager, find any unidentified device in the list, or expand the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch, identify the Audio card > Right click > Update driver... > Install the software automatically > Next
3C) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers.
P.S. These steps mentioned above are for Windows XP, but will be quite similar on other Windows versions, too.

I reformated my hard drive and installed windows 7, then i downloaded windows live messenger but when i use video call i cannot hear the person whom i calling but they can hear me your help is very much...


Reformatting has no relevance here.
They hear you, but you can't hear them. Which means, your OS is able to communicate with the sound hardware. Also means, the driver is not likely to be the cause. Check sound properties & see how many audio devices are listed. If more than 1 sound card is listed, see which input device (i.e., sound in) is the default. Set the output device to the same.
Check the sound output jack. Plug in a headphone or a different set of speakers. Then, play an mp3 or wav file. If you get sound, then the problem is with the msnger config.
If you do not get any sound, then you might have a bad jack. There is also a small chance that the driver is incorrect and works only with the input, but not the output. This is not very likely as Win7 is better at handling drivers than prior versions. Make sure the driver you're using is for W7. XP or Vista driver will not work properly.

No audio


hi there,

If you don't have a audio driver, check your audio harware which brand is it?
First of all check which mother board are you using, if the mother board is builtin then you can find on the internet your driver by your motherboard name. like "Asus P5KPL_AM SE" sound driver.

secondly, if its not builtin then find out your sound card brand, which is mention on the sound card.

Thanx

"No Audio Output Device is installed"


I checked their website. Did you download the sound driver RAM2080 Win Vista x 86 15.02.2007 version 6.10.5337.0?

If so and it did not work it looks like you'll have to update the BIOS (BIOS update RAM2080 _only_ for MS Windows Vista 14.05.2007 version F0A. However BE VERY CAREFUL and follow the instructions EXACTLY, otherwise you may make the computer unbootable.
