    I have the same problem.  It's not the sound card because after a clean installation of Vista everything worked again.  But after awhile the problem returned.  

    The first time it happened I updated the drivers and then it worked fine.  But a few weeks later I had other problems with Vista and had to reformat and reinstall.  Everything worked for about a week with the original drivers, but then the problem returned.  No sound and an error message saying that no audio output device was installed.  In Device Manager, "sound, video and game controllers" doesn't show.  Updated the drivers again, but this time it doesn't work!

Check online for the drivers for your sound card. If you install the drivers and it still doesn't work, replace the sound card.

Looking for graphic eq software for a toshiba satellite a205

You don't say if the EQ will used to modify/edit an audio stream or simply provide a way to equalize the audio output from the tiny little speakers in the laptop. So, I chose to answer the modify/edit. There is a nice and versatile freeware program called Audacity which will do the job for you. EQs of all sorts is under the "Effects" heading.

PC shows there is no audio out put device installed. Also there is no start up tone sound

Please check on your lower right side of your taskbar for a speaker icon facing right with sound waves coming out. Left click on it if it present and you should see a popup with a volume slider and mixer. Make sure the same sound icon that wis on your taskbar is not muted, "red cross out", appearing with the speaker icon.

If you are good to go, great, if not, it could be your audio driver is corrupted or no longer installed.

Please go to the Toshiba link below for the Vista drivers that apply to your model.
There mutible pages of drivers and software, please scroll throught them.
Should add the page to your "Favorites", in the event you need to go back.
Download and install as prompted, then test to see if OK.

Good Luck

No Audio Output Device is installed

I would try a system restore. Did you down load something since then? Hopefully you have a restore point set?
click start-->all programs-->accessories-->system tools-->system restore. (this will set everything to default,if you made any changes.)

If it is a hard ware issue you will know if this solution does not work. Then I would uninstall the drivers then reinstall. If you have access to the internet you might find the any necessary software online.

If this still does not work seems the speakers are bad.

There is no sound comeing from the speakers, and at the bottem right hand side the sound pic. says"no audio output device installed"

You need to download the audio drivers. You can try first by using the add new hardware function in your control panel, if this does not work then you can look up drivers for your specific model on the toshiba website.
