You need to install the compatible driver for the your sound card to solve the problem or you can open the device manager of your computer then click your sound devices, then click the properties tab then click the rollback drivers. If it doesn't work then go to the control panel,click printers and other hardware..in its left side click add hardware. a wizard searching for hardware will appear if you have the installer then put it to the cd-rom/dvd-rom. automatically it will be installed. If this doesn't work,you need an internet connection. Other option you can do is to download your driver in the internet.
O.K., I solved this problem and got my SoundBlaster Extigy to work with Win 7 (64-bit machine). Here is what to do:
Easy part: 1. Search your system for the old USBAUDIO.sys driver: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\wdma_usb.inf_9ce240de
2. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) to usb or floppy Trickypart : 3. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers Rightclick USBAUDIO.sys (d.19-04-2008)> Unlocker >Choose Delete
4. Copy old USBAUDIO.sys, (d.02-11-2006) from usb or floppy to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers
6. At reboot, Windows will block the Extigy from starting "because the manufacturer's software was known to cause problems." Go into Device Manager (Right click Start button, Click Control Panel, Click Hardware and Sound, Click Devices Manager (under Devices and Printers section). You should see the Sound Blaster Extigy listed under Sound, video and game controllers
7. Uninstall the Soundblaster Extigy in Device Manager (right click the device)...click Uninstall
8. Close Device Manager
9. Remove Extigy USB connector from laptop/computer for at least 10 secs. and Turn off Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers
10. Now reconnectthe USB,
11. Turn on Extigy, Sub-woofer, Speakers.....
12. Windows will now install the July 13 2009 device driver
13. Right click on Speaker icon in taskbar....Click Playback Devices...Extigy should appear in the window along with any other playback devices installed on your computer.
14. Click on Extigy...make it the Default Device
15. Then, disable the internal speakers (in my case it was RealTech) and any other playback devices.
16. Right click Extigy, select Test....it works!!
If you don't have the Nov 2, 2006 driver, email me and we'll figure out a way to get it to you.
The yellow mark indicated the multimedia audio controller driver was not installed, therefore the audio won't work/no sounds.
You need to identify the make and model of the audio card and if you haven't the audio installation CD then you can download the driver from the manufacturer's WEB site.
Since the repairer fixed your computer, he should have installed the audio driver. I suggest you get the repairer to install the audio driver as it should have been part of the repair service.
Also if you see any other yellow marks against any devices in the DEVICE MANAGER then these will also need the drivers installed.
Not sure what operating system you are using, but a quick Google search came up with this:
Sony does not offer audio drivers for this computer.
However, they do offer this:
Err Msg: Cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding.
Please check if there is any exclamation mark (!) displayed in Sound, video and game controllers under Device Manager. If there is any exclamation mark (!) in the Sound Driver Devices, please reinstall the sound driver with the steps below:
1. Start up the computer. 2. Insert the last disc of the set of Recovery CD-ROM into the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive. 3. Double-click My Computer and double-click the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive 4. Double-click the VAIO folder and search for the Audio folder in the Device folder. 5. Double-click the Audio folder and double-click Setup.exe 6. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the Sound Driver. 7. After the installation is completed, remove the Recovery CD-ROM from the drive and restart the computer.
* If the problem persists after reinstallation of the Sound Driver, please follow the steps below to check if there is any latest device driver upgrades:
In the Downloads section, please select Notebook and proceed with the steps below: 1. Move the cursor to the relevant Notebook Series and click the model of the VAIO computer. 2. Locate any latest Sound drivers and proceed as per instructions on the screen.
* If the problem persists after performing the device driver upgrade, please contact the local Sony VAIO Helpdesk.

try this to make sure that the driver was installed correctly.:
Note: Do not use the “Add New Hardware” Wizard in the control panel. Follow the steps below to install your driver correctly.
1. Plug in the USB cable and power on the device – the New Hardware Wizard will start up (wait for it to start).
2. If Windows asks to connect to Windows Update, click on “No, not this time” and click on “Next.”
3. Select “Install from a list or specified location” and click “Next.”
4. Select “Include this location in the search” and Browse to the
folder containing your driver (either on your CD or the folder you
downloaded). Click “Next.”
5. Click “Continue Anyway” when the Windows Logo testing screen appears.
6. Click “Finish” when the Completing the Found New Hardware Wizard screen appears.
At this point, you may need to reboot your computer. After restarting,
you should check to make sure the driver was successfully installed. Go
to Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices and make sure your device
is listed under “Sound Playback” and “Sound Recording” for audio
devices and “”MIDI Music Playback” for MIDI devices. You should also
check in the Device Manager to make sure your MIDI or Audio device is
listed under “Sound, video and game controllers” with no problems (such
as the yellow exclamation point).
If everything is successful to this point, Windows has installed the
device correctly and is making it available to any software you need to
run. If you can not see your device in your software, you should first
try re-profiling the device (different software programs do this
differently). If this does not work, you may need to uninstall and
reinstall the software. If you still do not see your device, you may
need to contact your software vendor for more help.

Double-click the Edirol installer and follow the onscreen installation instructions.

is often a buffer size problem. Be sure to check your Buffer Size
setting. You'll find it in the Edirol Icon in System Preferences or in
the Control Panel of a Windows machine. Increase your buffer size until
the problem goes away.
There are also several settings you will want to make in order for audio applications on a Windows XP computer run optimally.
One of the more detailed websites to walk through these settings is MusicXP.net.
