yeah but what if you accidentally used the recovery wizard and deleted everything, partitions and all? No recovery partition left to use, and now getting... checking media [Fail]... followed by No bootable device--please restart system- I have bootable windows cd's but it won't read them for some reason, not even on a usb . this toshiba laptop is only 1 month old and daughter got virus.
Try installing it manually. Right click computer icon in desktop or start menu -->choose manage --> go to Device Manager --> Find the Audio device that has a Exclamation mark, Right click on the icon and choose update drive. A Hardware update wizard will pop-up tick the last circle that says no, not at this time ->install from a list of specific location ->Search for best driver in these locations tick the include this location in search box and then click Browse.. Choose where the Audio driver is located (either the driver CD or in your computer) and click next.
Go to Start, Control Panel, Sound and audio devices. Make sure that the mute box is unchecked. If that is fine, try reloading the driver for your media device. File may have become corrupted. See if that doesn't work.
check if the sound card is properly installed.
- go to start, point to computer, click manage, then click device manager. if there's a yellow sign on your audio, you need to install your audio driver
If it reads data it will read music (which is only data!)
Do you have a Music Program installed? The type of program will depend on whether the music is in CD Audio format or is in the MP3 format.
Windows media player should be able to read Audio CD's (but I don't think it will read MP3's). If you are trying to play a CD encoded as MP3 then you will need to search for a program that plays MP3's (there are many free ones on the Internet.
If it will not read Data, then buy another unit and install it (they are terribly cheap nowadays and uneconomical to repair).
I'm not sure whether this is the exact same problem, as I was having, but mine just randomly quit while I was listening to music this morning. I got messages saying "No audio device installed", but when I went to device manager, all my audio devices said they were working properly. If this is the case with you, simply restart your computer. It may take a couple restarts, but this should work. My sound was back even before it finished shutting down.
If it helps anyone trying to get to the root of this problem, I am running XP on a Dell B130 laptop, with the following devices listed in Device Manager: Audio Codecs Legacy Audio Drivers Legacy Video Capture Devices Media Control Devices SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC Video Codecs Hope this helps!
you have to download the sound drivers and install the software..can't give you the exact driver as haven't specified much about your PC. still try to download one of the common driver like realtek- Ac97... from the following URL .. http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
or try to download other audio drivers and install it...your problem would be fixed.
