No Sound from Acer Aspire 5100 : Volume tab is disabled

I am facing problem with my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. Sound is not coming from my Laptop.
I went in Accerssories->System Tools->System Information. Then in System Information, under Components->Sound Device, nothing is coming up. Its blank.
Also went in
Settings->Control Panel->Sound Speech And Audio Devices->
Sound and Audio Devices. On this "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" dialog, under "Volume" tab it says "No Audio Device" and ever thing is disabled on this tab.

Please tell me what to do to resolve this.

I tried by reinstalling RealTek High definition audio drivers also. But still not able to get the sound

    I have the same problem, except mine is this way: i installed xp as a dual boot and it works fine. The sound works in vista but not in xp. The device (Realtek...) which is visible in vista is not even shown in xp sound and audio devices panel. In device manager, there is no error about audio drivers (no ? or !). What should i do?

No Sound from Acer 5100 : Volume tab is disabled

I am worried that there is a problem with the sound card on your motherboard. If it has worked in the past and then suddenly disappeared, usually it is because the computer can no longer locate your sound card. It will not load a driver for a device that no longer exists. Since you have already done most of the troubleshooting steps, it is time to think about replacing your motherboard. Good luck

No sound on laptop

Was it working before and did you do anything to warrant the difference?


Normally people reinstall Windows XP and find that the sound did not load up.


Pretty unusual for a laptop sound to just stop if yours has done exactly that then the sound card is either poked or the driver has just died.
