Dear prakharsriva,
It shows that your audio driver is not installed. install the audio driver from the cd that is given with your motherboard that is compatiblw with your OS.

thanks,

No sounds


Hi,
Try to check if you have installed an audio driver for your computer/laptop. You can see this under Device Manager.
Here's how to go there:
1) Right click My Computer.
2) Go to Manage
3) A window will appear. Click Device Manager.

If you see a yellow exclamation mark under Sound, Video and Game controller, that means that you have no driver installed for that corresponding device.

If that is the case, you should install a driver for your audio device in order for it to work. Your computer/laptop comes with a CD/DVD that contains all the drivers for your devices. If you can't find yours, try to search online for the audio driver of your computer/laptop.

Hope it helps!

When I try to play music I here no soud because i have no audio output device installed,How do I install audio output device on compter(Microsoft Vista Xp)for free?


What type of computer is this?
If you are building this unit yourself, and your motherboard does not come with audio. Then you must purchase a Sound card. I think Soundblaster is a good choice...Try clicking on sys information and see if you system has Audio. if so then check and make sure you have plugged your speakers in too the right output port, look at the back of the computer its usually the green jack.

Thank you

This may resolve your issue by updating your sound driver in device Mgr..
Follow these instructions.

To access Device Manager, go to Start vistastartmenu.jpg | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager (Device Manager is located under "Tasks" in the left hand column of the "System" menu).

No sounds


Click on Start --> Control Panel --> Sounds, Speeches and Audio Devices

On the computer's native volume control, make sure nothing is muted.

If you have a sound card installed, reinstall the installation CD that came with it. If you no longer have the CD, go to the manufacturer's website and get the software from their website.

In many cases, when you go to "Sounds, Speeches, and Audio Devices," you can look for a particular item that has a yellow exclamation point beside it, and tell Windows to reinstall any missing drivers.
