Dear friend.
the red X appears on the sonud icon in vista when the driver you have installed is incompatible withh the hardware.

try these steps
*check your speakers
if it fails
then


*go to device manager
*from the sound and video uninstall sound devices
*restart your pc
*the drivers should be detected by now

*if the above steps fail
*after uninstalling the sound devices
*click on search for hardware changes
*then proceeed with automatic install(make sure you are connected to internet)
note: the automatic driver installaion in vista is a bit slow so be patient.

HiAre there any changes made? Intsallation of software, hardware or download.Well the best thing to do is to follow this.
Follow these instructions for reverting important Windows Vista files back to a previous state using System Restore:
Difficulty: EasyTime Required: Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows Vista usually takes several minutesHere's How:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
Click on the System Restore program icon.
Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows Vista problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Unable to completely restart windows vista home b


If this is a name brand system, you would need to use either the restore CD/DVD that came with the computer or the restore partition on the hard drive that can usually be accessed by hitting something like F12 (depends on your computer). It sounds like you already reinstalled so the restore partition is out of the question. If you don't have the restore CD/DVD, you may be able to order it from your computer manufacturer. Other than that, you will need the installation disks/files to restore everything.
