The sound wasnt working on my sony vaio laptop so I disabled the sound device and thought I could enable it again. But now it says there is no sound device installed on my laptop and I dont remeber my laptop coming with any cd to re-install that. Where can I get an installation program for that. The model of my laptop is Sony VAIO VGN-NR38E/S. Please help!!!!

All you need to do is right clock in the sound properties playback folder and hit "Show Disabled Devices". After searching the web for a half hour trying to find out what happened to my audio device, I felt really stupid after I noticed that.

Goto here
right click on "MMDevices" select permissions, click add then click advance and then click on "Find Now" then you'll have the list select "Everyone" click OK twice and select Everyone at Groups or usernames box and be sure to select Full Control and Read means both are ticked...

then do this again for this HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MMDevices\Audio\Render

Thank you. Microsoft is stupid for a company who claims to put usability and convenience of the consumer before everything.
