I've been trying everything from installing Realtek audio soundcards and drivers to research, and I can't seem to find anything... My Altec Lansing Series 100 speakers are plugged in, however, when I go to the Control Panel, and then Sounds and Audio devices, it says no audio device is plugged in...
Please help, I've been working at this for hours and this is driving me crazy!
I had the same problem with vista home premium
i downloaded the driver and then after I rebooted it said no audio device installed. I went to control panel then checked to see if the driver was on the add and remove programmes list it wasnt so I downloaded the driver again and installed it everything works fine now .. so try that first before you go hunting for other solutions that mean a reinstall of vista ..
had the same problem sometime back . if u deleted your audio drivers by accident and it was not deleted by some virus , then you have to re-install the driver cd that came with your audio device . for onboard devices use the motherboard disk . for external devices go to device manager select souund and audio device and right click on it and select update driver . it will auto serch for the driver and install it . hope this helps worked for me ...
I was onthe control panel deleting some programmes so as to have more space for songs and new folders but somehow I ended up deleting it accidentally.......could you please help me sort this out as I am worried that I will loose most of my importanant programmes on the computer because I have tried to install a drive detective and it doesnt seem to be working but its there.
It's me again. A couple days ago I wrote a message on here. I had erased a few programs I did not need anymore and all of a sudden my sound was removed. It was if I had no sound program for my speakers. No one was able to help me so I researched it myself on the net and here is what I did. I went to the "Start" menu at the bottom of my page, clicked it, then clicked on "All Programs", then "Accessories", then click on "System Tools" and then "System Restore". From there a window will open and it will ask you what date you would like to take your computer back to. Yes, it is like the movie, "Back To The Future", you can go back in time. For example: (For those of you who have never heard of this before) If today's date is May 30th and you erased your sound by accident this morning but your computer was working fine yesterday, you would set your computer back to May 29th. After you click on that calendar date and hit ok, leave your computer alone for a few minutes while it updates itself. (Your computer will explain everything to you once you get to the "System restore" area.) After this process is done, your computer will reboot itself. I did exactly what I mentioned above (I figured it out on my own) and if you ever find yourself in a weird situation like losing sound (assuming you are not just making a human error and have your sound on mute), try it.

When I try to play some music iin windows media player it says that the device might have been removed or its being used by another programme.What does this mean?
