Try to reinstall the Drivers through the windows auto.
Make sure the audio service is enabled in BIOS.
Upgrade the drivers for the chipset on the intergrated Motherboard. Either look on the motherboard or run a program like ASTRA 32 to determine the chipset and download and install the driver accordingly.

High definition audio controller This device cannot start. (Code 10)


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10 (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10 or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.
Go to Toshiba support site look for Toshiba Satellite A135 drivers, download the one for your windows 32 or 64 bit install, restart and off you go. Regards, Mike

I am in nstalling audio Real Tek AC 97 agter


Here is a suggestion : On desktop go to ::
my computer----mouse right click----properties----system----device management. There you can find symbols for all devices that are already installed on your system . Scroll down until you find the definition of your audio device software , for example , if your audio driver software is a realtek then right mouse click on it , then you'll find disable , just disable it and then uninstall the audio driver software ! After that you should restart your system . When system started again , install the software again , and restart the system once again . Now you should hear the operating system starting tone .. If you didn't hear the tone , then go to device management again and enable the audio device once again .
good luck . rate if useful please !

No audio on my computer


Hello there:
First i would check to see if the sound card is working and that the speakers are properly inserted and are powered up
but if you have a message saying no audio device found
than i would recommend downloading vinal ac 97 this is a free audio suit that gives you a combination of a mixer device and a equalizer all in one plus the audio suit
simply download the vinal ac 97 and once it is installed there will be a set up program that will walk you throuygh the rest of the set up process
during setup there may be a error that pops up but just select continue and once it has finished select finish and sut down the computer like normal and reboot and it will be on the desktop upon system start up ok?
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
