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.




I hope that works for everyone.

Buddy did you ever get to fix your Sigmatel problem, Tried everything including below steps.


1. Re intsalled R171789.exe through windows update. (apparently the version 5.10.0.5515 is the final one :( )
2. Enabling/disabling audio device (sigma tel) through device manager etc.,

This is my problem:
1.The sound hear from local system is pretty ok, sometime skips. Even sound recorder is working fine.
2. When I use the same mic/headphone over IM's (GTalk/yahoo/Skype) I get to hear random scratchy noise nothing but that...truly frustrating experience.

As im totally dependent on voice chat over the internet, this has been a depressing one. Please provide help if you have a solution.

Thanks in advance!!!
