I have Hp Compaq Presario F700, my sound card is not working anymore. It says no audio output device is installed. Unfortunately, there is no "sound, video and game controllers" in device manager, and also my sound device is not seen in device manager. My sound appeared a few days ago, but after a restart it has gone again. I tried to install the driver over and over again, but it says "could not find MEDIA device for this driver" I don't know what to do! Please someone help me.

My Operating System is Vista.
AUD?O: Conexant HD-Audio SmartAudio 221

Try this 1.

First download the "Chipset" drivers and install it ---> then try installing the

audio drivers. If the problem still exists try updating your BIOS.

I had the same problem. In case you haven't find a solution yet. Try this, disable your antivirus (all of them if you have many), uninstall any sound related program (I had VLC media player), restart your computer...after rebooting the system will find your sound hardware and install the driver automatically. You may enable your antivirus again. Try to install only the appropriate to your OS software.I had the VLC installed to a previous windows version and I used the same package to a newer OS. It appears that there was an other package suitable for my new OS...that caused me a lot of problems.
