I kno this problems is kinda like not believin. I m also shocked but plz plz help me!!!
i went to control panel
found sound device
uninstall the driver
reboot the system
and the system automatically insttalled the driver again
and well for now its working again ...
mayb need to upgrade bios ... but this works for now
I have a cr120 e also that had the same problem. There is a BIOS update that will fix the problem
all you have to do is go to the Sony support web page and download PHBSYS-16124100-US. It is a patch that should fix the errors in the SP1 update for vista.
I have a sony vaio laptop,
It was working just fine yesturday but when I turn on the computer again it was already on mute.
so I tried to unmute it and it didnt unmute
and when I turn the volume up it only went up one and wouldn't go up farther, and when it went up one the little icon and it still stayed mute
so I went on sound mixer and it said "no audio device is installed"
i dont know what to do
can you guys help me ???
(oh if I spelled anything wrong sorry im a bad speller)
I too am in the same boat. Sound kicks in when I startup and maybe 5% of the time it works when I want to play something from an application but then usual quits. Poor Sony's...does anyone know how to reinstall your sound card from vista?
I was having the same problem on my Toshiba Satellite Pro, no audio at all, windows startup, speakers on laptop, and headphones plugged in nothing worked.
Solution that worked for me:
i went into the sound properties and the mute box was not checked so I thought hey lets check that box as you know that mutes the audio as soon as I unchecked it all my audio came back
My laptop does have sound like when it starts up or other little things but wont play music and other things like that. I have to go to Run and type in Services.msc and scroll down to windows audio and start it. It's at automatic start but it never starts automatically (it fails.) I do that with wireless zero configuration too... to get a wireless signal for internet.
i too have a sony vaio CR series and I have been experiencing the same problem of no sound. However there is sound when windows starts but after that I cannot get any sound so therefore I am unable to listen to audio clips or even have voice chats through the upgraded messenger services... HELP please! From all these comments it must mean that Sony needs to address this problem that is common amongst the Vaio laptops particularly the CR series...
