Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
When starting my Vista box I get RegisterDeviceNotification Faile: 1066. I get this twice. I've checked the PNP service and it won't start. Checked the System Error Logs -
The Plug and Play service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified. and I have a bunch more like it or service didn't start because of dependency services didn't start. I started looking around....and my device manager is completly blank. I'm not sure of what might have caused this. Nothing was installed that I know of. Just booted one morning and walla....things are in disarray.
Somehow you've lost at least one dll file that Vista needs to load. This could be due to a bad sector on your hard drive, or something like a virus might have maliciously removed it.
The first thing I would try is to repair your Vista installation from the install CD. Boot from it, follow the prompts, and it will re-copy all of the essential system files. Reboot after the repair, and anything that was missing should now be there.
In any case, let me know how it goes.

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps
