This may resolve your issue by updating your sound driver in device Mgr..
Follow these instructions.

To access Device Manager, go to Start No Audio ouptut device is installed - vistastartmenu.jpg | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager (Device Manager is located under "Tasks" in the left hand column of the "System" menu). A list of hardware will display. Here you will search for "Sound, video and game controllers", click on the (+) plus sign and a drop down menu will appear. One at a time, right click on each of these choices and select Update driver. When completed, restart your computer.

good luck

Audio & video is not working


You downgrade from Vista to XP right?

Installing your audio drivers on XP:- ***important
You have to install the "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)" first, before intalling the audio drivers Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP (sp41836.exe).

If you reverse the procedure your audio won't work.

Hope it helps.

My computer is saying no audio output device is installed after applying updates to vista. what should i do?


Hey there, As you have specified the problem, is ocuuring due to driver of your onboard or external sound card device driver is not well in functioning. Sometimes it happens, when you online updates your driver like, your firmware is designed for designated PPI Audio driver while updating online if the exact driver is not found then it searches the driver for related fetched driver for that device. It causes not to let interface your device with the designated OS. Preferred solution: search for any *.nfo file available in your OS Directory(C:\Windows). Open this .nfo file n then look for Audio device version and manufacturer's name. Search the name followed by exact version on http://google.com for OS vista and then install that driver. ##Be sure about the version of OS are you using. like 64 or 32-bit OS. Download the driver with respect to your OS type(32 or 64-bit)## I Hope it will work. Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me. Thanx - Romy Dec

Volume on computer wont work


I found many references to this issue but I am not sure which may apply to your problem. Here is a set of steps to follow from another site: (Assumes Vista and Realtek)

  • Open Vista’s Control Panel (Window | Control Panel)
  • Open the Realtek Audio Manager (not “Sound”)
  • In the navigation bar in the far right, there is a little yellow folder icon. It is just below “Device advanced settings” and above “ANALOG”. Click the folder icon.
  • Click “Disable front panel jack detection” so that a yellow check mark shows up. Hit “OK”, and close the Realtek HD Audio Manager. That should re-enable the sound.

"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.
