In control panel go to "system" then "device manager" and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark in the sounds, video & game controller section. (click the + to expand the section).

You probably need to uninstall the sound card driver and reboot so windows can re detect it and reload the drivers. You may have to download the drivers from the support section of your computer manufacturers site. look for a link to support. have the model and serial number ready.

Audio output device


The audio output device in your computer is the audio adapter board (or circuit). This is the device that produces sounds and send them to the speakers.

If you get a message telling you that there is no Audio Output Device detected, or that the Audio Device is not working, that usually means that there is a problem with the audio driver.

In that case the problem is often fixed downloading and reinstalling the drivers for your audio device. If there is a problem with the audio output device, go to the computer manufacturer website (e.g. Dell, HP, Sony etc.) and download the audio drivers for your specific model. When download is complete install the drivers and restart the computer.

I reformated my hard drive and installed windows 7, then i downloaded windows live messenger but when i use video call i cannot hear the person whom i calling but they can hear me your help is very much...

Reformatting has no relevance here.
They hear you, but you can't hear them. Which means, your OS is able to communicate with the sound hardware. Also means, the driver is not likely to be the cause. Check sound properties & see how many audio devices are listed. If more than 1 sound card is listed, see which input device (i.e., sound in) is the default. Set the output device to the same.
Check the sound output jack. Plug in a headphone or a different set of speakers. Then, play an mp3 or wav file. If you get sound, then the problem is with the msnger config.
If you do not get any sound, then you might have a bad jack. There is also a small chance that the driver is incorrect and works only with the input, but not the output. This is not very likely as Win7 is better at handling drivers than prior versions. Make sure the driver you're using is for W7. XP or Vista driver will not work properly.

I have no sound coming from my speakers , it s telling me I have no audio output device is installed.Everything is plugged in .

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click the Properties tab
Click Device Manager
Expand the "audio" branch of the tree.
Do you see an audio-device? Probably not.
Do you see an "Unknown Devices" branch of the tree?
If so, expand that branch, and double-click the "unknown" device.
Click "Reinstall Driver".
If asked whether you want to search the Internet for the software-driver, click "Yes".
Windows will install the drivers for the "audio device".
