Audio Device Is Disabled

I've gone back and forth looking through countless websites / forums for a solution to this, but i cant seem to find one. My computer's sound card would used to start acting funky after i left it on for a day or 2, and would require a restart, and after restarting from one of these, the sound stopped working altogether, my sound card is integrated into my motherboard. I also cant watch videos now since my sound stopped working, but video games work fine. As well towards the oddness, my internet connection tab in the bottom right of my screen says i'm not connected to anything, but im actually fine.

Headphones Device Disabled

I accidentally disabled my headphone device. I had my sound device manager open to the headphones manager. There was a check-box that said "disable this device" and i accidentally checked it. I clicked apply, then the box was blank except for a text saying "the device you are configuring has been removed" even when my headphones were plugged in. I tried replugging several times, and nothing. I looked all over the device manager/sound manager/control panel for anything that would let me enable my headphones to work again. Any ideas?

I have a laptop toshiba tecra m11 with w7 64 pro. After a windows update i do not have any more sound. I cannot enable the audio device. - I do not have a restore point to use

- I have tried to disable/enable the sound card
- I have tried to de-install and re-install the sound card

No Recording With Usb Audio Device

I choose to play the audio output of my pc via a hi-end usb dac rather than the scabby wee green hole. But as soon as i connect it (or any external usb sound-card) all internal audio input to the stereo mix disappears. Stereo mix remains the only and active device in the sound 'record' tab (other than microphone) with or without the dac connected but any signal showing activity on the bar meter when not connected disappears when connected.

As all recording software, including the basic windows recorder, still see only the stereo mix recording source option then no recording is possible whilst monitoring via the dac. I have to disconnect it and monitor any recording from said green hole. Then, once recorded, swop back again.

As i make music, entirely pc based, then i require as good and true a monitoring system as possible, thus the dac, but it's a bit of a nonsense that having got my mix just so via the dac, i then have to disconnect the thing just so's i can record it down onto two tracks of audacity or the like. And then connect it back to listen to the final result. Am i doing something wrong/missing the point somewhere please?

No Audio Output Device Installed

I had the same problem before. I upgraded to windows 7, had the red "x" on the audio and fixed it pretty easily with realtek high def audio driver. That's all i can remember from that. Well i bought a new printer and had to downgrade back to vista and that's when the sound messed up again. I tried to fix it with vista but was told i should go back to windows 7 so i did and the problem still persists.

I have a compaq presario sr5113wm and from my knowledge my sound card model is a creative sb live! Series (wdm). Everytime i start my computer the action center pops up with messages saying "address your sound card" or something like that so when i go to the device manager to check the sound, video and game controllers the only option listed is my webcam mic. Realtek or creative are not listed and i tried installing and uninstalling everything and i still get nothing! I keep getting people telling me to take the sound card out but i really want to leave that as a last resort and try to fix this technically. I've done it before but maybe i'm missing something.

No Audio Output Device Is Installed

I've already tried updating the driver, but the solution did not work and none of the other solutions are possible for me to even try. I haven't had problems with sound until randomly a little while ago. I have a dell inspiron 1440 on windows 7 64 bit home premium. On the bottom corner, there is a red x next to the sound icon and when i check for playback and recording devices, it just says that none are installed. This is a very frustrating problem.

Audio Output Device Is Not Installed

I just got the "no audio output device is installed" message for the second time. I can't remember what i did last time to fix it, but i've tried everything that people have suggested on multiple threads concerning this. It was literally working last night as i was listening to music, today when i turned it on it said i had no audio output installed. I have an hp pavillion dv9500. I upgraded from vista home 32-bit to windows 7 pro 64-bit, but never had a real problem until now.

I tried to find the driver on the hp site, but the driver didn't work. I've even tried to restore my computer to a week ago when i got a system update, but it keeps failing. There is also an exclamation mark on the co-processor under other devices in the device manager, but i have no idea what it is, and my sound, video, and game controller section pulled a houdini on me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Audio Output Device Not Working

I have a toshiba a215-s7444 laptop that i have had for 2yrs. It originally came with vista 32 bit installed and 2gb of ram and i added 1gb of ram a year later and all was fine. I recently did a format and custom install of se7en 64 bit. Now everytime that i resumed form "hibernation mode" i had no audio and got the error message that "no audio device is installed and it does not even appear in the device manager. When it runs the diagnostic it tells me that "new hardware may have not been detected. Now upon reboot everything is fine.

I have audio and in the device manager is the realtek hi-definition audio device. But resuming from sleep mode everything worked just fine. Ok so i updated the windows experience index score hoping that it would recognize the new hardware change. But the prob. Persisted. So the other night i added another 1 gig of ram for a total of 4gb. And all 4 gigs are being used, in the control panel>system and security>system it says installed memory (ram): 4 gb ram (3. 87 usable).

So i am fairly sure that it has recognized the added hardware change. Now after adding the 4th gig it recovers from hibernation mode just fine but when coming out of sleep mode i lose my audio device. Until i reboot or restart-lol. Anybody have any ideas besides the obvious just use hibernation mode only. Or is this a question for the toshiba forums?

High Definition Audio Device Does Not Work

I posted a question earlier - on high definitiion audio device - which is manufactured by microsoft - does not work in hp pavillion dv8330us - and they don't support it - i have the latest driver 6. 1. 7600. 1635 (7/13/2006) (i get a code 10 error message)

What can i do to make sound work ? I'm not  sure if it is a motherboard issue or a sound device issue. It is a 32 bit system - hdaudio.sys. I'm even wondering if i have to buy a new sound card to work with windows 7 on this computer - and which one would that be and the cost? A friend has a dell computer and they support the same high definition audio device and he has the exact same driver installed.

Buzzing Sound From Audio Files

Ive had windows 7 running on my computer since may of last year (2009) and had little to no trouble. Just recently i upgraded to a standard version (32 bit) and have the same music playing that i did earlier. Now for some reason, the audio file emits a buzzing/electrical static mid song right on top of the song, if it be itunes or windows media its happening to most of my files. I have no idea what is going on. Any suggestions? I am pretty tech savvy, just not when it comes to this. If you have any suggestions, please shoot them out and i will get back.

Sound Clicks When Audio Is Played

I updated to windows 7 about a week ago, and the sound was working fine until last night. Whenever any audio is played from any source there is a little click in it about once a second. It's not distorted, and it's not static, it's like somebody snapped their fingers.

I have a usb sound card that i tried, and it had the clicks in it too, so it's not my hardware. Also i did try reinstalling my sound drivers for both of the sound cards (usb and integrated).
As far as specs go, i've got an inspiron 1501 laptop, and the sound card is sigmatel audio (not sure what model, but it's integrated) edit:

Also, the usb sound card i have outputs 7. 1 surround sound. That might have something to do with it.

Asus P5vd2-mx Motherboard Audio Device Driver

Audio device driver required - windows 7 64-bit - asus p5vd2-mx motherboard - cpu: socket 775 - audio device "unknown". Ok, as the title says, i need the correct windows 7 64-bit driver (fyi. Asus do not have any win7 drivers for my board except for bios flashers)
 
Previous: new computer (to me its new, it was my brothers) worked fine for him but came with all drivers pre-installed (he also used win7 64-bit)
 
I formatted the drive and re-installed win7 64-bit. It showed the device as working including in the device manager, however, no matter what i did i got no sound. I tried to find drivers online and found one saying it was the win7 64-bit driver, it installed fine but had to reboot to finish the install, o nreboot it gave an error as i logged back in (cant remember what it was now) and now there is no device showing up at all anywhere not even in device manager and not even showing "unknown device"
 
I have been to asus website and tried the win vista 64-bit audio driver for my motherboard and it says it is not compatible.

Note: i have been through the entire faq on the asus website and they have no useful information what so ever, as with the forums.

Note: have also checked in playback devices panel and shown disabled hardware. Still nothing
I have tried using sis software "sandra-lite" and it cannot detect any audio devices
 
If this is a bios version problem and i have to flash it, please let me know and if possible provide a link to the correct flasher. Ive not flashed a bios since 1998.

Compaq Presario V2000 Audio Device Problem

I've scoured the threads on here and tried re-installing the realtek audio driver. I have a compaq presario v2000 laptop. Hp/compaq says that's the solution, but while it seems to install without error, it restarts and still finds no audio device to begin with.

I'm running win 7 64bit. I need to use this computer for audio production, actually, so i'm in a slightly bad situation and i am desperate for help. Remember, i already scoured the win7 audio threads on here and tried many of the suggestions, and each of them have failed. Miserably.

Audio / Sound Do Not Work On Hp Pavilion Dv8000

Recently i upgraded to windows 7. After the update my audio no longer worked. I have tried to update the audio driver both automatically, through windows, and manually from the manufacturer's website. I'm using an hp pavilion dv8000 cto notebook pc. Window's successfully detects the problem and tries to apply a fix, stating that there is a problem with the high definition devise. It continues, reinstalling the driver might fix this problem. It then fails to fix the problem. Through windows help and support i worked through each possible fix. Finally, i tried to download and reinstall the driver from hp's website, each version for each offered operating system.

A driver is not offered for window's 7, just vista, xp, and 2000. Each of the downloaded drivers came upon an error during installation and could not be loaded. The audio devise says under its general properties that this devise cannot start (code 10). No updates to the devise driver are available. Any idea how to get my sound working again?

Asus P5ad2-e Audio Device Driver Not Properly Installed

I did a clean install of windows 7 on 2 identical computers with the asus p5ad2-e motherboard. Both have the same problem: a message "no audio output device is installed". Letting windows try to solve the problem then results in an attempt to reinstall the device driver, which fails with the message "high definition audio device has a driver problem". Nothing i tried so far (uninstalling the driver, manually installing a realtek driver for windows 7) has worked.

Microsoft Win 7 High Definition Audio Device Driver

Microsoft windows 7 high definition audio device driver wrongly swaps c sub and rl rr audio jacks. This is a really bizarre thing that is driving me up a wall. I ran windows xp media center edition 2005 on my hp m1050y and the device ran as expected for years.

Then, i upgraded to windows 7 and my rr speaker emits sounds that are supposed to come from the subwoofer.conversely, the subwoofer emits sounds that are supposed to come from the rr speaker.

I also noticed that the speakers properties dialog displays the wrong colored jacks in the jack information section. C sub should be orange and rl rr should be black. However, on this dialog the c sub is black and the rl rr jack is orange.

Rolling back to windows xp fixes the problem. Installing newer realtek drivers for windows 7 fixes that problem but makes it so that i cannot control the headphones and rear l r speaker jacks independently, and cannot hear the headphones without turning up the speakers' volume.

Hp does not offer an updated driver for this device for windows 7. I have also done a strange thing and installed and run mac os x on this machine just to test the audio and even in that os the speaker jacks work correctly, just as they did in windows xp media center edition 2005. The problem definitely is in the windows 7 version of the driver for this device. From what i have read it appears to have also been in the vista version of the driver.

Does microsoft have a hotfix available that addresses this problem? Or, is there a way to swap the jacks in the driver? The chipset is the alc880.

I do not want to manually swap the plugs and jacks as this will not work for any other os i might also boot on this machine. Installing the generic realtek driver also is not an option as i need to be able to have separate control over headphones and speaker volumes.

I need maximum interoperability between operating systems as well as independent control of front and back green audio jacks. No other operating system, including older windows operating systems, have these jacks wrong but vista and windows 7. Anyone know of a solution or of a registry tweak i can do which will swap the jacks in the driver itself?

Sony Vaio Vgc-ra834g Sound / Audio Problem

I just upgraded an older pc to windows 7 that meets all of the requirements. Everything is running fine except i have no sound and it seems like a lot of people have this problem. My pc is a sony vaio vgc-ra834g. All of the hardware is original except for a wireless network pci card that is working perfectly after i found the correct driver. The sound card is integrated into the motherboard and is an intel chipset 915 series. I can't find much else about that board online. It might be a driver issue, but i have tried downloading drivers from intel and sony as well but no luck so far.
