No sound from internal speakers of my notebook

All the hints you gave here as ”best solution" wont help with that problem - also not to install the drivers again.
The problem is the green socket for the headset/speakers/digital at the front. After hours of testing I found, that the software doesn't recognize any more if there is something plugged or not in the green socket. If you check the "Realtek HD Audio Manager" and click the "Speakers" tab you find on the right side the round symbols for "ANALOG" sockets and the square symbol for "DIGITAL". Even if there is NOTHING plugged, the round green "ANALOG" symbol is intensive green and that means that it recongizes something as plugged in the socket - and that is the problem. Because the software believes that there is something "plugged" it directs the sound output to that socket and NOT to the internal speakers. I could not find out if it is a mechanical, electronical or software problem but it seems to be a electronical problem. The workaround is to click with the right mouse button on the green round socket symbol "Connector Retasking" and check "Line In" and - surprise - you will hear the sound from the speakers!! There is another work around with the blue "Line In" socket. If you plug your green plug from your headphone or speaker in this blue socket, a window pop's up and asks you "Which device did you plug in?". Normally it regognizes that it is a headphone (if not you check the "Headphone") and you confirm by clicking "OK". Now you have the sound output at the blue "Line In" socket, but with a lower sound level. If you now unplug - surprise - you have the sound again from the internal speakers - if you had set the green round socket symbol to "Line In" before!

Good success!

"No Audio Output Device is installed"

I checked their website. Did you download the sound driver RAM2080 Win Vista x 86 15.02.2007 version 6.10.5337.0?

If so and it did not work it looks like you'll have to update the BIOS (BIOS update RAM2080 _only_ for MS Windows Vista 14.05.2007 version F0A. However BE VERY CAREFUL and follow the instructions EXACTLY, otherwise you may make the computer unbootable.
