Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

No Audio Output Device is Installed

Problem
My sound icon has an x on it, when I highlight the icon with mouse it states No Audio Output Device is installed. I went to Device Manager it doesn't even show no sound device. I have installed drivers but it won't work because it needs a sound card, I believe it is realtek sound card not sure.
I also have the Acer 5100 Notebook, when I received the laptop the only CD they gave me was for Windows Vista Home Premium that is installed on my PC. Instructions stated to do a Back-up of all the programs and files on the PC before using it. I did that, so I have the back-up. If I run my back-up will it erase all my info on my pc? Will it restore my sound card?
I believe this all started when Windows Update did a update this month the end of July, everything updated except one update, and that was the New Vista Service Pkg 1. So, I didn't think anything of it, so it required me to restart my computer, and then when the pc was up and running again I didn't have a sound device, I didn't notice it right away until I tried to open windows email, it wouldn't open. I tried playing songs on my media player no sound. So, I tried to do another Window Update, hoping it would restore my sound card. But it stated I had all the updates except one which was New Vista Service Pkg 1.
Everytime I would try to update to that version it would stop in the middle of the update, and ask for the CD for Microsoft Word 2002, I couldn't find the CD, and the update failed. Window update wouldn't install the new version of vista. At first the Window Vista would not update to my pc until I removed XP version of Word 2002 from the Acer Laptop.
So, I decided to uninstall Word 2002, rebooted, then updated to the New Windows Vista Service Pkg 1. no problem updated ok. So, I restarted my pc thinking it would restore my sound card. No sound card. Tried to do another windows update. Stated No Updates are Available at this time.
I have been going to other forums alot more people are having the same problem. I went to Acer, and Realtek, no downloads for Sound Card, just driver, downloaded that, but still I don't have a sound card. I went to some sites, and they want you to pay them for downloading drivers, and sound cards. I'm not going to do that, so I guess I will contact Acer Support, and Realtek Support, and Defintely Microsoft Support.
This is ridiculous. Especially since there are many people having the same problem. It has to be a bug in the new microsoft windows vista service pkg. 1 update. my does not show the icon but when i got to control panel i see it there but when i clik it says no audio so i cant here any sound I bought a Toshiba(Model: Satellite U305-S5097) notebook last year. But sometimes the audio device does not work. It shows "no audio output device is installed" with a red cross at the corner, But sometimes, the sound comes back. It makes me mad. I tried all kinds of methods but did not work. When no sound, no "Sound, video and game controller" in Device Manager. Please someone who know the solution to help. Thanks! dell intel core 2 duo 250 GB

What is bluetooth for?


    • Connect a Bluetooth audio device (Windows 10)
    • Miracast wireless displays
    • WiGig wireless displays
    To connect your Bluetooth headset, speaker, or headphones to your Windows 10 PC, you'll need to pair the device first.
    1. Turn on your Bluetooth device and make it discoverable. The way you make it discoverable depends on the device. Check the device info or website to find out more.
    2. On the taskbar, select the action center icon and make sure Bluetooth is turned on.
    3. In action center, select Connect, then pick your device.
    4. Follow any additional instructions. Otherwise, you're done.

Will not start up


hi , Reuben

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
