Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Hey I have a windows vista hp laptop and somehow my sound got deleted off it. It tells me I need to install an audio output device, how do i go about doing that?
Have you tried reinstalling the sound driver? if not, click on start, then click on search. type in device manager, then press enter. click the arrow next to sound, video and game controllers. Double click on High Definition Audio device, if it says that the drivers are not installed, click on install drivers.
hope this would help.

Run windows update, then follow the directions below.
First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
