Try the following steps. 1. Right click My Computer Icon and select properties then select Hardware tab. 2. After selecting hardware tab click Device Manager button. 3. After clicking it list down all devices that you have and expand the  "Sound Video and Game Controller" by click the clicking the plus(+) sign and it shown you the list sound devices. 4. In the list, look for explanation point(!) in yellow color beside device name (this means that device driver is missing or not properly installed) 5. Select the device name and press right click and choose uninstall. 6. After uninstallation click Action Menu and select "Scan for Hardware Changes" (this will scan the other device which is not yet installed in the system) 7. System will prompt you to load the Audio driver(insert the Audio device cd driver) if your using a built-in audio use your desktop/laptop device driver cd and locate the driver folder from cd and choose sound or audio folder the list and select the proper windows for your computer. 8. after running installation the volume bar should appear  in the right side of your desktop allong with computer date & time. if not restart your computer.

My H61MXV when installed the audio driver still No audio device is installed. How am i going to make it sound? XP and Win 7 doesn't work with the installer.


Make sure you have speakers plugged in to the "Green" audio out socket. you can use a set of earphones if you have to. You then need to go into the control panel and set the Default audio device. Unless the device has a little yellow or red mark on it in the Device Manager. in which case you have more than likely got a failed audio chip. A PCI sound card will give sound output if the rest of the Motherboard is good.

No sound


You have to install the audio device drivers for the audio device to work. In case you don't have the installation cd here is a link for direct download from the official site. Choose your op. system (win XP, win 7 etc) and proceed to download and run the proper file.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I changed xp and installled win7, now no sound, message comes, "no audio output device is installed", i have lost driver CD too!1


Hello,

This is one of the most common problems when upgrading. You will need to find and install the audio driver for Win 7.

You don't give enough information right now. Can you comment back and give the make and model of your computer or your motherboard. if you have a separate sound card, we would need the make and model of it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Awaiting your reply.

Try using an win 98 startup disk on floppy and start your computer with disk in.Let it finish loading the drivers and then type in fdisk erase your partition and then make a new one. then restart the computer with floppy still in then this time type in format c:/ and format the drive after it is done then you can install win xp.But you need to repartition your hard drive and then format after that to get xp to install Oh yeah when you go to fdisk allow large drive usage

Audio problem


You need to install the correct driver for the sound device, because with win XP it can install a generic driver but it wont be working properly so if its a built sound on your MOBO you need to install driver for it from the MOBO setup CD.
