    Good morning, this has also happened!
    Can you tell me what type of sound card?

    You can find when loading with the mouse button to the right side over
    the icon for My Computer, choose Properties, Hardware tab, and finally
    Device Manager!
    After that it's just see what is a cross or question mark.
    Tell what is your model please

My pc says no audio output device installed,but in device manager it says its working properly and the drivers are up to date


Well it is possible that the audio driver installed is not the one compatible with you computer board. Try downloading the specific driver needed for your computer's official website. This should solve your problem.

No audio device


The "No Audio Device Error" message is usually displayed by your computer when it does not detect any properly working audio device attached to it. You will not hear any sound from your computer when this message appears. Only the internal speaker of the computer can provide you bleeping sounds.
When this message appears on your screen, you will need to first check your computer's BIOS and ensure that the audio is set to "auto" mode. You should also check if you have installed the correct drivers needed by the audio device attached to your computer in order for it to work properly.
Audio Device Drivers The most frequent cause of this problem is an incorrect audio device driver that has been installed by the user. In order to double check if your driver matches your device, refer to the user's manual that came with it to look for its type and specifications. The audio device driver for an onboard device should be provided along with the chipset drivers in the CD that accompanies the motherboard.
Use the Device Manager You can use the device manager to ascertain if the audio device drivers are installed properly. To go to the device manager, right click on the My Computer icon, then click Properties, click on the Hardware tab and then Device Manager. If any device is marked with a yellow question mark, it is an indication that the required drivers are missing. It should be instantly clear if the audio device is truant.
Loose Connections on the Motherboard You can open your computer and directly look at the information written on the audio device itself. While doing this, make it a point to check all connections by ensuring that everything is properly plugged in its correct place. Sometimes, this error is also caused by loose connections and a sound card that has been improperly attached to the PC.
You can download the latest updated drivers from the manufacturer's website, either from your own computer or another. If you have used another computer, you can use a data storage device to bring the drivers to your machine and execute the software installer from there. Ensure that the driver you have downloaded is compatible with the operating system installed on your machine.
Is Your Audio Device Defective? If problems with your audio device still persist, you can opt to test the audio device on a different machine just to see if it's in good working condition. If it still doesn't work on a different machine, you have a defective audio device. You will need to get it replaced if it is under warranty or purchase a brand new one. Remember that you should buy the audio device that is compatible with your motherboard. In addition, don't forget to ask for the updated software drivers of the audio device

No sound on computer


It means no audio driver is installed on your PC. That is the audio device that it is referring to. The audio driver installer came with your motherboard support CD. If it is no longer available you can download realtek audio driver online for free.

Suddenly, my 521-vista informed me that "NO AUDIO DEVICE IS INSTALLED". I have no sound at all


May be caused by installation of a audio related application or driver (especially Creative apps).
Use System Restore (typ this in Start Search box and click on it when it appears at top. Then Restore to an earlier restore point.

No Audio Output Device Installed


Hi

To immediately fix these errors in Vista, start the Windows Audio service as follows:
  1. Click Start c00834869.gif , and enter services.msc into the Start Search field.
  2. From the list of services, right-click Windows Audio and select Start . Figure 23: Starting the Windows Audio service c00847914.gif
  3. The message should no longer open. If the message opens again after the computer is restarted, repeat these steps, select Properties for Windows Audio and set Startup Type to Automatic.
If you have XP on the computer, then click Start-->Run and then type "services.msc" in the Run window and then click OK and once you get the Windows Services screen, follow the above steps.
If this doesnt work and the sound card is not onboard or integrated, then reseat the sound card preferably into a different slot and repeat the above steps.
