I think I accidentally erased my sound.There is nothing under sound when I go to the control panel. It says no audio output device is installed. Please what can I do to get my sound back??? I need my sound for when my kids and I talk to their dad via web cam while he is in Iraq. Thanks in advance!!
by the sounds you have uninstalled your audio device driver or have selected the wrong audio device.
my best bet would be driver so I will work with the information I have.
firstly to determine it's the driver do as follows.
1. click start
2. right-click on computer
3. click properties
5. click device manager
check for any unrecognized devices (usually have a yellow asterisk next to them, and are listed under other devices)
if this is the case. go to your computers manufacturers site. search under support for drivers, and select your model. under audio should be a driver for your computers device. download and install it.
if this is not the case could you provide some extra information to help me determine the problem. such as computer brand, device name etc.
wait for your reply :)
Ok, so I had the same problem. I tried everything these forums said to do. Someone, somewhere mentioned check the BIOS. I went to HP website to find the correct driver for my laptop and sure enough, downloaded the new version, let it reboot and Voila!!
