Hello,

If you have CD utility..then you have to insert it in the cd ROM and then reinstall the audio driver. if you have no utility then please tell me the model of your audio card or motherboard if the device is built in to MB.

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

My pc says no audio output device installed,but in device manager it says its working properly and the drivers are up to date


Well it is possible that the audio driver installed is not the one compatible with you computer board. Try downloading the specific driver needed for your computer's official website. This should solve your problem.

Open your control panel.
Click on Sounds and Audio Devices with the control panel in classic mode.
Click on the Audio tab.
Is Realtek HD Audio Input Device listed as the default device under Sound recording?
If not, select that from the drop down list and click Apply/OK.

Acer AX1700-U3700A with variable Audio on HDMI


Your problem isnt in your PC, it's because you chose the onboard sound to listen to music etc, which is normal. Unfortunately, you need to choose the HDMI Audio output if you want sound on your TV FROM the HDMI cable. Right click the sound icon located to the lower right side of your screen and choose (adjust audio properties). Now go to the audio tab and click the output device window and choose your HDMI audio output, whatever it may be called. Just pick the one that wasn't selected when you opened it and click ok or apply. Now all audio output is controlled by your Video card lol. Crazy aint it?

Restarts or reboots screen reads "diskett 0 drive failure"


1024 X 768 is the ideal setting for a 17" Monitor. Are you still getting sound output despite the error message? If no sound then your integrated sound card has failed, you will have to install anew one in the PCI Slot, otherwise forget about the warning & keep listening. You could try visiting the Official website to see if any driver updates have been released till date and refresh the drivers(sound) installation...............sodeep
PS: Check your Floppy drive? If not working simply disconnect and likewise in the BIOS if REQUIRED.

The sound has forsaken you because you use it unsubtly.  Take all-caps off and say whether you had sound before, whether installing the audio drivers worked, whether your speakers work when connected to a stereo output, whether your mixer on the computer is configured to do Optical-Out only; go listen to some piano auditions at various levels of ability, down at music academies and universities; play some Van Gelis through some homemade distortion filters; run some mashup software on MIDI files and crank that through midi boxes until you can get something listenable.  Break it down.
