Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Another "No Audio output device is installed"

I have a Dell Inspiron D531s, it’s just over a year old. 2 months ago I started getting “No audio output device is installed” only after it comes back to life after sleep. After I restart it I get sound, sometimes after 2 restarts. I uninstalled the sound driver. Purchased a sound Blaster CD from Dell, downloaded a new driver from the net, Changed the BIOS, then changed it back. Was going to buy a new sound card, but no one can seem to figure out which card, finally some said $150.00. I’m frustrated.

Actually the problem that you have is the power management. Go into Control panel then the power settings. Make sure to turn off system standby. The reason that it is not installed after it comes from sleep is that it is not reenabling. THe computer turns off the component during sleep.

No audio output device installed Dell Inspiron


Hi Nicojas,

You can download your drivers from THIS LINK. First select your operating system to install compatible drivers.

NOTE: If you have problem, make sure to install the chip-set drivers first. Then try un-installing whatever is under sound, video and game controllers in the device manager. Reboot and reinstall the audio drivers from this website.

Hope this helps.

Waiting your comments.

My sound went of and it said no audio output device is installed


It seem like the drivers those you have are may not be updated or may be corrupted.
Download the latest drivers from the below website.
Then uninstall your old drivers from your laptop and reboot.
Then install the new audio drivers according to the Operating System that you are using (XP/ VISTA).
Again reboot your computer and it should work perfectly fine.

This is the website from where you can download the latest version of driver.
Hope this helps.

Restarts or reboots screen reads "diskett 0 drive failure"


1024 X 768 is the ideal setting for a 17" Monitor. Are you still getting sound output despite the error message? If no sound then your integrated sound card has failed, you will have to install anew one in the PCI Slot, otherwise forget about the warning & keep listening. You could try visiting the Official website to see if any driver updates have been released till date and refresh the drivers(sound) installation...............sodeep
PS: Check your Floppy drive? If not working simply disconnect and likewise in the BIOS if REQUIRED.

Dell inspiron 8100 drivers


your audio driver is not helpful for sound card which is you install on your pc.
plaese change this driver.
all windows have different driver for different devices.
so you install the driver compatible with window vista and sound card.
