This is happening when the sound card has no driver ...probably you downgraded to xp from vista or windows 7 and now you do not have the suitable driver for xp...
If this is a brand computer ...than you can look on the manufacturer's site for the sound driver ....(for xp) if it is not...and it is a desktop....open it and take a look at the sound card if it is a pci card...and let me know the name ..and model...if it is an on board card ..than I need the motherboard name ...
If the computer came with a driver disk ..and always used Xp ..but now you just reinstalled it ...look for the sound driver on the mother board disk ..or separate disk if it has a PCI card ..
(the pci card for sound is just a separate card ..that is inserted in a pci slot ..that is why its called that way ...and its different from a on board ..one just by that...The on board cards..always have the drivers on the disk that came with the motherboard..)
Im waiting for an answer and will see whats to do further..

My computer was reformated, but I cant use my Multi media becuse there is no audio device which the program asking for, what shall i do


Not sure if you are saying you dont have a sound card installed or if when you try to play a movie it says it cant play the audio. if it is the later then i advise you intall a few codec packs. starting with divx, then community codec pak, and ac3 filter. these are the most common codecs required for most of the audio in media files. if it asking for an actual hardware sound insure that you have direct x installed as the media center in windows vista uses direct audio to paly the audio tracks in media files.

Creative media source is asking for some audio hardware what is that?


Sounds to me like it's asking for your sound card. If you have the sound card installed, does it work? (Does it play system sounds?)
Have you gone to the Creative website and downloaded the latest drivers?

Whenever I install a program like that and it asks for hardware, it means it can't find it.
Try removing the sound card (if possible), restarting the computer, then put the card back in and start it up.
Or--remove the sound card in device manager and let Windows find it again when it starts--could be a conflict.

My laptop wont play sound


I would recommend trying to see if these drivers will correct the issue..I can't see you having a laptop, and all of a sudden, there is no sound card installed? So, I think the drivers will solve the issue. You will need to enter serial number of laptop..click on the below link..

Problem with compaq presario speaker


Usually the driver for the sound system got a little screwed up.


According to the documentation; this is what they recommend, however, do not flip out if you have already tried this. Go past this section and I will tell another approach.

Checking your audio functions
To check the system sound on your computer, follow these steps:
1. Select Start > Control Panel.
2. Click Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices.
3. When the Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window opens, click the Sounds tab. Under
Program events, select any sound event, such as a beep or alarm, and click the test button.
You should hear sound through the speakers or through connected headphones.
To check the record functions of the computer, follow these steps:
1. Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder.
2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone. Save the file to your desktop.
3. Open Windows Media Player and play back the sound.
NOTE: For best results when recording, speak directly into the microphone and record sound in a
setting free of background noise.
▲ To confirm or change the audio settings on your computer, right-click the Sound icon on the
taskbar, or select Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices.

Now, that is the HP way. And I suggest you do that.


Another way would be to find the installation disk. And put it in your drive, then got to Start, Control Panel, System, and when that pops up go to Hardware, and then pick the Device Manager.

Delete the Sound section. Windows will then wander around a bit, but will then try to reinstall them. When it does (and it will ask for the A drive usually) hit browse and point it to whatever drive you have put the installation driver disk in.


Good Luck,

How do i install audio output device



No Audio Output Device Installed
Some users have been experiencing problems with a "No Audio Output Device Installed" error when trying to play music, or when hovering the mouse over the speaker icon in the system tray. You may get a white X in a red circle to indicate this error.

Go to the device manager by pressing WINDOWS KEY + R to go to the run menu, and then run "devmgmt.msc".

From here, select your malfunctioning audio device(s) and make a note of the driver name. Then, right click on it and select Uninstall. This will remove the audio drivers from your system.

Once this is done, re-load the drivers for your sound card from the CD your manufacturer gave you with your PC or sound device. If you cannot find this, search for the driver on the manufacturers website using the driver name that has been written down. No Audio Output Device Installed

Sound card wont play root media files


Hi Hughdog
well, Biostar mobos are know for a lot issues, but depending too, on the OS, windows XP I presume, go on safe mode, and uninstall all audio drivers, and disable on the BIOS audio. then start the PC, and install the audio card. or if is a internal audio reenable again, redetec the drivers, and install them according to the CD and drivers. you should see the play device now and play music correctly.
good luck
