SOURCE: NO AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE IS INSTALLED

I experienced the same no audio problem after Ultimate upgrade. Here is how I solved it.
Computer type: Dell Inspiron 1501 (Laptop)

1. Open internet browser. (in my case Internet Explorer)
2. Click on Favorites
3. Click on DELL
4, Click on Support.Dell.Com
5. Click on Drivers & Downloads
6. Click on Choose computer model
7. Select product model ( laptop, desktop....)
8. Select product model (in my case Inspiron 1501)
9. Confirm selection
10. Select operating system (in my case Vista)
11. Under category, select Audio.
12, Under downloads, select SIGMATEL-DRIVER STAC92XXX C-MAJOR HD AUDIO.
13. Select RUN.

Note: The computer went through the process of downloading and re-configuring the audio drivers. About half-way through the download, the red circle dissappeared from the speaker icon on the task bar. The computer re-booted and the audio returned.
I hope this helps.......Pete

Audio output device


Hi.

The audio output device in your computer is the audio adapter board (or circuit). This is the device that produces sounds and send them to the speakers.

If you get a message telling you that there is no Audio Output Device detected, or that the Audio Device is not working, that usually means that there is a problem with the audio driver.

In that case the problem is often fixed downloading and reinstalling the drivers for your audio device. If there is a problem with the audio output device, go to the computer manufacturer website (e.g. Dell, HP, Sony etc.) and download the audio drivers for your specific model. When download is complete install the drivers and restart the computer.

Regards.

"No Audio Output Device is installed"


I checked their website. Did you download the sound driver RAM2080 Win Vista x 86 15.02.2007 version 6.10.5337.0?

If so and it did not work it looks like you'll have to update the BIOS (BIOS update RAM2080 _only_ for MS Windows Vista 14.05.2007 version F0A. However BE VERY CAREFUL and follow the instructions EXACTLY, otherwise you may make the computer unbootable.

Audio output device


It is most likely you have a device that needed a special installation of a driver in order for it to work. The most logical solution in this case would be to reinstall your audio driver from the disc the driver is contained on.

Also, check Windows Update to see if a sound driver is offered as an optional update.

Vista displays that message if there is no audio output such as speakers or headphones.Plug in a speaker into the audio jack and the message should disappear.
