My computer has no sound,and it appears on screen no sound device,need to install but i don't have the cd sound device installer.
I have had my computer for a yr. Now its saying I have no sound device installed. How do I fix this without spending loads of money?
I have the same problem. Sound card (Realtek) used to work and now it says no audio output device is installed. When I try to reinstall the driver, it says "access denied." When I try to do system restore, I can't figure out how to manually set it for three weeks before now, which is about when the problem started. On top of it, whenever I close a file, I get this irritating loud beep on the computer and can't figure out how to make it go away. Help!!!!!!!!

Re: no sound on my computer
I was having these problems on my daughters laptop only last night. I tried to re-install the graphics installer and no matter what option I chose, be it restore or re-install (the driver), nothing worked. In the end I opted to reset the computer back to factory settings which re-installed all the drivers and windows vista back to the original settings when I purchased the laptop. Any files that are stored on D drive remain, it is only C drive that is restored. So if you decide to do this, then I suggest that any important files that you want to keep, copy them to D drive first.
If you do want to do this, go to bios by pressing F2 as your computer boots and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Reboot the computer and when HP screen is shown hold down ALT and continuously press F10 this will bring up the recovery program. Before the recovery program starts it may ask you for a password. This password will be user generated and you would have chosen the password when you first purchased the computer. If you cant remember the password try pressing Enter as you may have decided not to enter one, or your may be given a reminder as to what it was. Or try typing in Admin.

Go to Dell's Support site and enter your Service Tag. This will produce a list of drivers for your machine. Download and install the latest audio driver for your machine. The audio may be integrated on the motherboard, so you may need to install the chipset driver as well.
1. try to go into control panel and look for your sound device under hardware, make sure it's "enabled", and try to update the drivers for your sound card.
2. go to control panel, click on sound speech and audio devices, then click on adjust system volume, and then check the box that says place volume icon in the taskbar
3. If neither work try using the system restore feature and restore your computer back to a date where u know that the sound icon was still showing in the taskbar.
