Hello, I'm having serious and very annoying trouble with my sound. My sound doesn't make sound. I have a Windows Vista, the other day I reinstalled it and, since then my sound button at the corner of my screen next too the clock has had a little red "x" on it. It saids I don't have any audio devices installed. In "Hardware and Sound" in control panel it saids it's working fine. I have SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC for sound. I hope this isn't my sound card messed up. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but that didn't work and I reseted my computer over hundreds of times. Please help.
I had my sound quit after Vista updated twice. It would say that a 'Sound card was not installed' when I clicked on the speaker in the bottom right corner. Try this before anything else:
-Open Start menu, open control panel
-Scroll down to 'Device Manager', click 'View Hardware and Devices'
-Double click 'Sound, video and game controllers', then double click 'Realtek High Definition Audio'
-This will open the properties menu for your audio. At the top of the box, click 'driver'
-Finally, click the 'Disable' button, and then the 'Enable' button afterward to reset your audio system.
Go to control panel, then device manager. un install your sound driver, then go to the top of the screen to action. click on it and select scan for hardware changes. This should re install the driver you need for sound. I had the same problem when I reformatted. this works if you got that red x on your volume icon. Don't go spending cash on software you don't need :O)
right click the microphone with the x on it.
and go to playback devices. and if theres no sound it should say no devices installed
with a box below with no choices right?
well just right click the box and it should say show hidden devices.
or show disalbed devices,
just click that and they should come up and then you just click it and you should have sound!
hello,am having the same problen aswell no sound is cumin on my computer and ive cheacked the contral oanel and its not that still im having problems what can I do now??
Is this a desktop or laptop? Do you have your sound on a seperate card installed on the computer or is it attatched to the motherboard? usually if it is attatched to the motherboard the sound ports will be beside your monitor, keyboard, mouse port. make sure if the sound is a seperate card that it is pushed all the way into the slot into the motherboard. If it not fully seated this will also cause this problem.
you can do a manual scan for hardware changes in device manager by going to Computer-right click, select manage, then right click sound and select scan for hardware changes.
I am not sure but it could be your sound device driver. you may need to install the device driver for the sound card. This is a disk that come with the card or with the computer if the sound card was already an installed component. If you can't find the disk you can go to the Sound card manufacturers web site and look for the device driver and download it. After the download is complete you will need to do a restart and your sound should then work. After the reinstallation of Vista you need to install all additional drivers for other hardware. The Operating System (Vista)holds many drivers itself wich is how other components are working such as your mouse, monitor, video card,etc. but not always, which is why you need to go to the manufacturers web site and download it. I hope this helps.
if the driver is the problem you should download the Driver Genius software instead of searching at sound drivers websites. that program will search and install a driver compatible with your sound card and iT should solve the problem.
