Have you installed anything else on the system? Also, you might check Event
Viewer assuming that will open. Open the Start Menu, type Event Viewer in
the search box, when you see the security prompt, click continue and it
should open.

If that doesn't resolve it type CMD in Start Search on the Start Menu. When
you see CMD at the top of the Start Menu, right click, select "Run As
Administrator." When the command prompt opens, type

"sfc /scannow" without the quotes and let it run.

If that fails to resolve it, check manufacturer websites to make sure all
your device drivers are up to date, the same with all of your software, make
sure the apps are Vista compatible and that you've installed any updates.
Also, make sure you have no malware or any viruses. If all is fine you may
need to do a repair, boot from the Vista DVD and choose the repair option at
the setup screen.

Show or hide the taskbar gl_icon_tip.png Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
The taskbar is usually located at the bottom of your screen. It looks like this:

If you can't remember where you last saw it, try pointing to the bottom of the screen first, and then to the side or top of the screen, if necessary. You might need to move the pointer almost off the screen to show the taskbar.

NO AUDIO OUTPUT IS INSTALLED


Sounds like you are running Vista. If so, do you know if you are useing the RealTek Audio?

I found many references to this issue but I am not sure which may apply to your problem. Here is a set of steps to follow from another site: (Assumes Vista and Realtek)

  • Open Vista’s Control Panel (Window | Control Panel)
  • Open the Realtek Audio Manager (not “Sound”)
  • In the navigation bar in the far right, there is a little yellow folder icon. It is just below “Device advanced settings” and above “ANALOG”. Click the folder icon.
  • Click “Disable front panel jack detection” so that a yellow check mark shows up. Hit “OK”, and close the Realtek HD Audio Manager. That should re-enable the sound.

Remove secure mode in Windows Vista Ultimate


Note: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system, so do it at your own risk.
here is how you can do it.
Open up Control Panel, and type in "UAC" into the search box. You'll see a link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off":
a337154.png
On the next screen you should uncheck the box for "Use User Account Control (UAC)", and then click on the OK button

You'll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.
