My computer says ''no audio device detected'' in the control pannel

My computer speakers stopped working randomly on the 4th Of July. I thought it was the computer speakers, so my uncle bought me new ones. My dad hooked them up and I know they are correct. In the control pannel, it says that there is no audio device detected even though they are plugged in and turned on. Is there a certain program I have to download to make the sound work again? My computer recently had alot of viruses and my dads friend removed them all, so I don't want to download something that will mess up the computer again. PLEASE HELP!

Whats happened is that your "Audio Drivers" have been removed.
Your audio device is inside your PC /laptop, probably on a bit of your computer called the motherboard, but in order for your computer to recognise and talk to your audio device it needs a bit of software called a driver. We need to find out what type of PC / Laptop you have, make another post on here with as much info on you PC/laptop as you can find, and state that you are looking for the audio drivers, myself or one of the other experts will then find the right drivers for you and tell you how to install them

My computer doesn't detect my speakers, I do have windows 8


Do you have the AC adapter plugged into a live outlet and have you turned on the speakers? Make sure that the speaker signal cable is plugged into the correct port on your computer (the lime green port on a desktop). Check that the correct audio driver is installed for your computer. (With Windows 8, use the Device Manager to check. From the Start Screen, type in Device Manager. Click on Settings and then select Device Manager. Alternatively, Windows key+C on the desktop. Select Settings and then Control Panel. You can find the Device Manager under System and Security or Hardware and Sound.) Scroll down to the Audio devices. Expand the section and look for a red triangle with an X or a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. Try updating the driver (check with the manufacturer of your computer for the latest driver). Even if you don't see the error triangle, try reinstalling the latest driver.

Next check if the speakers work on another computer. If they don't work, the audio cable may be damaged. Try a different set of computer speakers on your computer.
If other known good speakers do not work and the correct audio drivers have been installed, check the audio output devices. Go to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound page (as described above). Choose Manage Audio Devices. Check if the HDMI port is set as the default audio device. Disable it for a bit (right click on the device) . Sometimes when a new video card is installed, the audio device defaults to this port. This messes up the drivers for the regular audio.) Reboot the computer and then try reinstalling the audio driver. Reboot again.
If it still fails, there is probably something wrong with the audio device hardware. If you are using an add-on sound card, try disabling it and using the motherboard audio device. (A number of add-on sound cards didn't work well with Win7 or Win8. The on-board audio drivers worked better.) If you are using the motherboard audio on a desktop, try an add-on sound card. (Check for Windows 8 compatibility (drivers) before selecting any card.)

I hope this helps.

No sound is coming out from the speakers an we only owned it for about 3 months.


Please check all the cords associated with the speakers (the one to the computer, the one to the power outlet, ect) and make sure they are all plugged in correctly. Next make sure you have turned the speakers on, I dont know how many times I have thought my speakers were bad and I had turned off the power to them. Next in the lower right corner there may be a speaker looking thing, double click it and make sure you are not muted (can also be found in control pannel (sound and audio devices). Next try in the control pannel, and sound and audio. Make sure the output is set properly. I have seen some computers set to a digital coax out, when plugged in with a standard mini jack. If this is the case change the digital coax to the analog mini jack. Also make sure that it is not selecting only the front port.

Hope one of these helps

Hello @Rocketships. It sounds like you have removed software / hardware drivers, which translate how the speakers and/or audio should work, to a language the CPU can understand.
Try doing a 'restore' to a date just before you had problems.
Try downloading driver(s) for the device.
Do other sound devices such as head phones still work OK?
If not, you may have to update missing drivers for your OS.

2.1 SPEAKERS NO SOUND. CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE & CANNOT ADJUST SPEAKER VOLUME.HAVE NEVER HAD SPEAKERS HOOKED UP BEFORE.


> CONTROL PANEL DOESN'T RECOGNIZE ANY AUDIO DEVICE

That's your problem. It could be:

* the audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard is "disabled" -- Windows cannot use it

* there is *NO* audio-device integrated on your computer's motherboard -- Windows cannot use non-existent hardware.

* Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for the integrated audio-device.

* you have an add-in PCI audio-device, and Windows has not installed the correct device-drivers for this hardware.

Do the speakers work if the output from an iPod is connected to the input-jack on the speakers?

Do the speakers work if connected to some other computer (laptop or desktop) ?

This sounds more like a sound card issue. Go to Control Panel, System, Device Manager and check your sound card.

The speakers get plugged into the audio output jack on the back of your computer.
