The simples answer may be  to go back to the restore function for the date right before you installed IMESH, what ever that is.

I have a Presario F500, it had sound but it seems like I deleted the sound and now it says "No Audio Output Device is Installed". PLEASE HELP. dANNY

Danny, please fallow these instructions to the letter and you will have your sound back up and running in no time.
First, disconnect all external devices from your unit, ie; flash cards, external hard drives, wireless devices, and any USB devices with the exception of keyboard and mouse.
Next, reboot your unit and allow to completely setup.
Next, lets go into your device manager and take a look.
If you see any red flag's, exclamation marks or the phrase unknown devices, please remove them and reboot your unit.
The reason we are removing any of the above is, the red flag's indicate a malfunction with the device, the yellow exclamation mark, shows at device seen but in direct conflict with another device.
The phrase " unknown device " shows a device that is trying to load, that windows does not recognize or have drivers for.
Either way, if you have removed all the explained above, you can now restart your unit, again without external devices.
Your unit should see whatever was removed and reload the correct drivers needed to have the device function properly.
Now that the unit has restarted and reloaded its drivers, you should have your sound and you can " one at a time " load your external devices.
If for any reason, you are to have a problems in the loading of devices, drop me a comment and I will help as I can.
Happy Holiday's

In my system the sound system is not working . the mother boar is p5gc-mx/1333 witch sound drive o loaded in the system

There could be more than a couple of reasons for this to occur:
1) Check that the external speaker mini-plug is connected to the back (of front) of your system.
2) Ensure the speakers work connecting them to another device, such as a portable CD player, or cassette player.
3) If the speakers work, then the cables are also Ok; then try the following, assuming your OS is Windows, of any flavour:
(In XP) Go to Control Panel and double click on System. Run the Device Manager utility and select your audio/multimedia card.
Right click on it and select "Uninstall".
Close all windows and restart your machine.
(Vista) Right click on Computer and select Manage. Next, select Device Manager.
Uninstall the audio card using procedure above. Restart your machine.
Windows should detect the audio card as though it's the first time it's been installed, and it will try to find the device drivers for it from a known drivers directory.
If the detection phase fails to find the drivers, then load the CD that came with your audio card and insert it on the tray, and point the utility to search on this CD.
You may need to browse up to the directory that actually contains the drivers (a folder usually named so). The way to find out when Windows has found the driver files is to notice that the Ok button is no longer grayed out.
Good luck!

No drivers for sm bus controller & 2 unknown devices listed

this is the link for your drivers. it is very important that you download the chipset driver utility and run it. the chipset driver utility should resolve your sm bus controller not showing up. make sure you restart the machine when it asks. this will insure that the o.s. and machine reset correctly and load the new drivers. if you have more issues drop me a line and we can get it fixed.

Good Luck!

My computer din't have sound.I already install Realtek HD Audio Driver but not solve the problem,still no sounds.I looked on to Control Panel-Audio&sound but there is no audio device at who can...

Firstly, need to verify your unit uses a RealTek driver. Go to control panel, then system, then hardware, then device manager,

Look at the list and find sound, video and game controllers, click on + sign to expand, look for devices with ! marks, these are the ones with issues. They will either be unknown or state the wrong drivers are loaded. You can click on the device in question then right click to update drivers.

This will work only if you have the right drivers.
