Did you download or install anything that might tamper around with the audio. If you did then uninstall it and reinstall it, that might help. Alright if that doesn't help then go into Control Panel and click on the Icon that says "Sounds and audio devices." Or something similar.

Play around with the settings and see if your situation improves.You may have to go into the "Audio tab" and set the Sound Playback and default device to what ever your sound card name is. If you dont know what your sound card name is then just play with those settings. Another thing that you could use is system restore.

System restore is in (Start, All programs,Accessories,System tools,System Restore). Restore it to the date that your audio was working fine. System restore wont delete your files or anything.

I have windows xp so things might be different on your computer.

Please rate me a thumbs up if I helped.

Check in BIOS to see if the audio device is disabled. Does the computer have a hardware switch for audio? If neither, then the device may be bad.

Under sounds no audio is installed, scan for hardware changes, still no luck try this: Try a "Cold-Start",Remove all media, DVD, CD, USB..etc., Remove AC plug, Remove Battery, Hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, Replace battery, Plug into AC outlet,Push on/off button and Start normally. Check device manager for audio, scan for hardware changes. reconnect to tv.

I have installed Windows 7 on my Hp 6602au. It worked fine for a couple of months , till yesterday . Suddenly I lost audio from my laptop. The message near audio icon showed "No Audion Output Device...


Run a Windows Update, check to see if there is an updated audio driver, if not go into the device manager and remove all of the audio devices, reboot.

That should resolve your issue.

Let me know if it doesn't ;)

I have no sound in my pc (no audio output device is installed)...but after restarting my laptop the sound will works but then is gone plz help


Hello,

The best thing I would advise you to do, is this:

Uninstall the audio driver completely first from your system,

Then Connect your system to the internet,

Right-Click on my computer icon,

Go to the device manager on your system,

Right click on the icon specifying the audio driver(which was not
installed),

Select Update driver software,

On the options that comes up, select update software online

automatically, then wait for it to do the remaining.

After a while, it will show 'Installing Device driver update'.

Just wait for it to finish.

Then click on finish/ok/close.

I can guarantee you that your audio will work perfectly after that.

Hope this helps you out.

Kindly let me know how it goes.

Thanks for using fixya.

Problems with audio after installing radeon hd 2400


Hi,

This happens because the video card has hdmi output. Since hdmi output can carry audio signals also, the audio driver gets disabled. Uninstall audio driver and video driver both, install the video driver, and then install audio driver. after installing the audio driver, in playback and recording devices choose choose the audio output device you purchased along with the computer. This should fix the issue.

Revert back for any clarifications.

Warm Regards,
