You need to reinstall the driver.

If your computer is a laptop or a brand desktop, post a new request on Fixya telling us make and model.

If it is a no brand or not a known brand desktop, the computer must be opened and somebody must read the number on the audio card (or motherboard) to find out the model.

This means you have a bad driver installed. Uninstall all sound drivers from your device manager and re-install the latest driver from your Computer or Sound card manufacturer's website.

My laptop has been reformat after the OS crassed. Original Audio device is Conexant Smartaudio device. However after it ws reformat i noticed that conexant is no longer the audio device.


if you have the CD's from the manufacturer, there will be a driver CD. simply install the conexant audio drivers, and it should be back to normal.

if you do not have the CD, you can download the drivers here:

The audio on my computer has gone


install the audio drivers on your computer and your computer audio will be back.

U can go to device manager and then right click on audio driver and update.
Steps to go to device manager are as below
1. You can open Device Manager by double-clicking on the System icon in Control Panel, choosing the Hardwaretab, and clicking Device Manager.
2. Fortunately, Device Manager can be more easily run by launching devmgmt.msc

My computer audio is gone so what i shuld do?


First check your output device......... speakers/headphones on another system.
Next check if the proper sound drivers are loaded. If its integrated audio (from the motherboard) and device manager indicates proper drivers are loaded for this hardware, then nothing can be done. If you want audio output add a sound card on a PCI slot to get sound from your PC

Audio problems/ Teredo Tunneling Interface


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

all the best...

I just downloaded the audio and video drivers but the volume level is too low. the os is a windows xp and the laptop is a sager D270s.


You can double check if the audio driver is already properly installed or not, Open Device manager and look for the audio device there you should see something like Realtek or any High def audio device there if its not listed there it only means one thing that the audio driver is not yet installed properly. so you need to reinstall the driver, but if its there right click the audio device and select uninstall and once its gone restart the computer to reinstall it back and check if the sound is already working fine....
