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.
First you have to go to Device Manager and check if the audio device is properly installed there.
Click Start then Run, Type devmgmt.msc and click on Ok. This should pull up Device Manager and in it is a list of devices detected and installed. Check if the audio device is installed properly. If not, if you are using Vista or Windows 7, you can right click on the audio device entry and click on update driver software. Choose update driver software automatically. You should be connected to the internet when doing this as your Operating System will look for a compatible software driver online.
If you are using Windows XP, you might need to visit your pc manufacturer's website and download the drivers there or if you have the driver cd that came with your computer, you can also use that to install the drivers needed.
Hope this helps.
You can go into the device manager (right click on my computer/manage/device manager)
Uninstall the dvd drive, when it tries to re install the drive stop it and you should be able to tick a box telling it not to ask to install this device again.
You can always remove the drive, this is usually just 1 or 2 screws under the base and pull it out
Drives Disappear After You Install ITunes or Norton Ghost** If after installing ITunes or Norton Ghost, you get Device Manager error code, try locating the Audio File System (AFS) driver from Oak Technologies at C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\afs.sys or doing a search for it. Rename it afs.sys.txt and reboot. This driver is incompatible with the driver found in iTunes and Norton Ghost. The driver from these two companies is the same and made by a third company called Gear Software. After renaming the afs.sys driver file you will lose access to the CD burning feature of of the following: HP Memories Disc Creator, Liquid Audio Portal Player, Oak Technology SimpliCD, or Broderbund's Print Shop version 20. If you still wish to use the burning feature in any of that software, upgrade it to a Vista versions. For more information, see the article here - http://www.gearsoftware.com/wiki/index.php?title=CD/DVD_drives_disappear_after_installing_iTunes.
Description of Code 10-related errors that Device Manager generates in Windows-based computers http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943104/
Please do all the below even if you have done some before as it is often the total process which solves the issue.
Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT this will refresh the default driver stack.
Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then check cables in both ends. Remove and replace, do not just snug. For laptops you can often clean the power and data contacts with a pencil eraser.
Some DVD drives do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the System maker and device maker to see if there is firmware or drivers for you drive if needed.
I would try stopping the device and restarting it first.
If that doesn't work, find the latest drivers for it, and have them in a folder you can find easily. In device manager, you can right click, go into properties for the DVD-ROM. Click the update drivers button, and point it to that directory.
If neither of those work ,try completely uninstalling it from device manager, then going through the add new hardware option in control panel.
Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc… It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.

I am Romeet,i will try and help you with this problem.Seems it could be an issue with the Combo DVD Drive's Driver Software or Firmware.
From your Desktop:
Right Click " My Computer" Icon and select "Properties"
Go to "Hardware" Tab and select "Device Manager"
Under Device Manager, scroll down to the "DVD/CDROM Drives" menu and click on the plus ( + ) Sign next to it
Right Click the Drive name eg " Toshiba DVD-R TSST 2313" and select " Uninstall" Click yes to any prompts and restart your Laptop.
After rebooting, Windows XP should pick up the drivers again, so wait a while for it to complete and until it notifies you that " Windows successfully completed installing your new hardware" or something to that effect and then try using the software cds again
