Re: audio output device

You will need to determine what audio hardware you have, and download and install the appropriate software driver for VISTA. If you can't find one, the audio hardware may not have drivers available for VISTA.

Windows vista ultimate doesn't recognize my labtec lcs 2424 speakers but it does my sound card

Being windows vista is most likely is a driver problem. Is it internal or external sound system, not the card that works. If the manufacturer does not have an updated driver by now you can set the device to work like windows xp and it should only effect that device. Also search the web there are driver packs out there for windows vista, keep in mind its all the drivers for everything on one large compressed file so it should be a large file size.

Ultimately I would say upgrade to windows 7, its how windows vista should have worked. I have devices from windows 98 that work on win7 no problems. Vista was just very premature in its release. Hope this can help. Sorry for my bad spelling.

I have just upgraded to Vista and prior to that audio was working fine - now saying no audio output device is installed

hi this is normally due to vista drivers not finding your audio normally this happens with the generic AC95 type audio device, if you have the on board type you can normally use the drivers for windows 2000 but vista being vista you might be better off getting updated motherboard drivers for the web site of your motherboard manufacturer there normally is allot of updated stuff out there for vista....hope that helps

Z-5300 speaker no sound

You need to install the sound drivers for your PC. go to the manufacturers website, ( and go to the support section, sometimes called downloads also. It will prompt you for your model of PC and what Operating System ( XP,Vista,etc..) and then it will list the drivers that are available. you should update anything in "DeviceManager" that has anything except the "+" sign beside it.

On Vista 64bit version goto control panel>>Hardware and Sound.. under sound click on Manage Audio Devices>> then select your speakers by double clicking on them. In the new box that comes up goto Levels and there are slider bars for all settings - top one is Audio output. Slide this to the right. Mine was set at virtually zero when I plugged my speakers in yesterday.

How do i install an audio output device in my computer I have just re-installed my windows xp os but it did not inatall an audio output device

Sorry, I see it's XP. Just do a Manual Windows/Microsoft update online (Start, All Programs, Windows/Microsoft Update), Choose "Custome" and not "Express", then after you jump through a few hoops you will get to a screen that allows you to select additional "Software" and "Hardware" updates and check them to see if your "Audio Device", and if it's there check mark the box by it and select " Install Updated" and let it do it's thing, you'll have to reboot after the driver update is done and if the correct driver update was installed you should be Fixed?
If the update didn't pick up your hardware? Give us the information that Johncaman and I requested and we can fix you up that way.
Good luck.

No sound in win XP sp3

please check out in my computer systems device manager if anything in the sound section is in red or yellow remove it. unless win xp was made for your laptop the drivers are not there. you need to go to compaq web site and download your drivers.
