Welcome to Fixya!

Yellow color in the device manager means that it is a driver problem. Download Device Doctor. Device Doctor is a freeware that scans your computer for driver updates and locates drivers for unknown device.

Click on download. After the download, go to Downloads folder and click the devicedoctore.exe files. Installation will start. After the installation, there will be a pop up window will ask you if you would like to begin scan. Just click on it. Scanning will begin. You will see driver updates needed, click download.

Hope this helps.

This is so because you need to install the correct audio drivers for your sound controller. You need to go to the manufacturers website and download and install the latest Audio Driver for your system. Then your sound will work.

I deleted my audio by accident


Mp3 players and other multimedia play devices, once you format the device, you have to re download the device drivers for it from the manufacturers website, and follow any instructions they might have.

If you have only deleted the music (not) formatted it, you can just put the same music back onto it by finding where the music files are on your computer and sending them to your device. This is a very easy process and nothing is lost as long as you have saved the music files onto your computer.

Most people save their music files onto the music file folders or in the C: drive of their PC. If you have a media player: Windows Media player, they might be on there.

Sound problem


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
