May be caused by installation of a audio related application or driver (especially Creative apps).
Use System Restore (typ this in Start Search box and click on it when it appears at top. Then Restore to an earlier restore point.

I instal a windows vista but i can't find my audio


Is your audio device compatible with Windows 7? Did you check the hardware compatibility list before you installed the upgrade? Did you run the compatibility test (called Is Your Computer ready for 7?)

Find the list here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx Click on hardware and then find your device. If your device is compatible, the list will tell you - you will also find additional information at the post.

If your device is not compatible, you will have to upgrade it to a devise that is compatible.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Where do i find the volume icon?? it's lost somewhere and can't hear any volume?


Try this:

Go to click on "Start."
Go to "Control Panel."
If you're using XP, go to "Sound."
If you're using Vista/7, got to "Hardware and Sound."

If everything is grayed out on the sound control applet, it is possible that the hardware is disabled or the drivers for the audio device is not installed.

To check on the status of the hardware device:

Click on "Start."
If you have XP, click on "Run." type the command devmgmt.msc
If you have Vista/7, on the search bar, type Device Manager, then click on the first result.
It will display the Device Manager which allows you to check the status of the devices installed on your computer
Go to "Sound." Click on the "+" sign. Check if there are any devices with a red X or a yellow exclamation point.

If there is a device under "Other Devices" that says "Audio Controller," it means that the drivers for the device is not installed. If this happens, try looking up the specifications of your computer online to check for the specific audio device that you have and then download the drivers online.

Hope this helps! :D

Sound not working on winows Vista


'Realtek High Definition Audio' is the name of the device, the driver for it is called something like WDM_235.exe
You should use only one audio device - if there are 2 it will be a conflict. 
First of all go to Start | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager and see if you have another audio device and, if not, what is exactly the problem - most likely a bad driver install. If it's that then go directly to the Realtek site http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false and download (as in Save, not Run) the latest driver. Once you have it remove all other Realtek driver present, reboot and after closing the New hardware window launch the one you downloaded.

I cannot get the sound to work


Check first if your AUDIO is enabled in the BIOS. Did you upgrade or change your SOUND CARD? Then check if there is an AUDIO DEVICE installed on your computer. Also check if your audio device driver is compatible with the desktop that you have. Make sure also that your audio driver is compatible with your operating system if it is Windows XP or Windows Vista. Thank you.

I cant get sound from my cpu when I click on the speaker icon It says no audio ouput device installed, operating on windows vista/ intel pentium D processor 820/T5224 desktop PC any suggestions


Hello,

That usually means that the drivers aren't installed properly.

I would suggest that if you know the manufacturer of your machine, go to their support site and download the appropriate driver for your model.

If you don't know the above information, I would suggest using Windows Update to download the driver. You will need to click the Custom optiond to download the hardware drivers.

Here is information on using Windows Update:

XP instructions here. Vista here.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

After installing XP pro on a Acer t180 that had Vista basic on it to start have lost the sound. Hardware device manager shows no driver installed for audio device on hd audio bus, under heading Sound...


Hi there,

dont worry your not the only person that has had this problem i had it too along with others,

theres no ways round it, either go to the acer website and download the drivers, or simply reinstall vista.

downloading the drivers may not work, as the hardware ay be built for vista.

hope this helps

NO SOUNDS...


Here is a link to the Windows Xp audio drivers to try for your motherboard/audio:

http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/258452/powerspec-v201-realtek-audio-sound-driver-5.10.0.5288-windows-xp-free-download.html

You need to click the link on this webpage near bottom to go to download. Let me know if this does the trick. It definitely sounds like an XP issue.

No Audio Output!!??


You need to download and install the Vista compatible driver from the manufacturer of your sound card.
It is possible that if your card is old, it cannot be supported by Vista, and you will need to replace it.
