Hello,
no audio output device is installed. Ive pretty much tried everything: driver cd, system restore, device manager, uninstall and reinstall all versions of realtek audio driver.

So my question is can I just get a new sound card, do you think that will solve my problem??? if yes what do you recommend, and how do I do it. Im runnig a dell with windows vista (crap).

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Thank you
I just did by clicking inside the sounds menu, where there used to be speakers and now saying no sound system detected, right click in that box, and it will tell you to enable the sound system on your pc or laptop. once enabled then its good to go. Do not install any other drivers cos just a waste of time and money.
Send me an email if you need more assistance

I have a temporary solution.

NOTHING else has worked for me.

Try:

#1: Restarting your laptop numerous times with the BATTERY OUT until the sound appears (at the windows music screen).

OR

#2: Restarting your laptop numerous times ONLY WITH THE BATTERY (NO POWER CORD) until sound appears.
