Realtek Audio: No Audio Output Device is Installed

Q: Realtek Audio: No Audio Output Device is Installed

Hello.

Im having the dreadful "No Audio Output Device is Installed" problem on my realtek audio.

It worked some months ago, but im in no position to do a roll back. Im sure the hardware is just fine, it works with Ubuntu.

The computer is a Dell Vostro 430.
My OS is win7 64bit.

I tried the newest Realtek driver suite, the recommended dell-drivers and some basic windows-drivers. Nothing makes the "No Audio Output Device is Installed" go away.

Any help is welcome.
Ive attached my sound-related reg. I believe my realtek device is 0001.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Realtek Audio: No Audio Output Device is Installed

The Dell driver is required, non Dell drivers will either not work or not work correctly.

First thing, is the Integrated Audio enabled in the BIOS? (F2 at boot up to enter Setup).

Second, on Dell's (and many others) if the motherboard chipset drivers were not installed, the sound device will not work. In this model there are Intel motherboard chipset drivers. Try installing them and then the Dell sound driver. Dell Drivers

I've spent countless hours trying to fix this. It started out with me wanting to enable the "stereo mix" option and so following a youtube video I proceeded to updating the driver using device manager > update driver and after restarting, I received this error.

I then downloaded the newest driver of the manufacturer website (realtek hd audio) realtek.com and installed it. Mind you, the stereo mix option did in fact show up, although I couldn't make use of any audio since I was getting the "no audio output device is installed" error.

All this time, I can still see the mic/line-in inputs, and headphone/speaker outputs in the sounds (control panel). I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, and using the roll-back option for drivers. Although from control panel, I managed to uninstall the sound card software for realtek. Between all of this, after any sort of install or uninstall I also restarted my computer.

I downloaded the drivers from the HP site (PC manufacturer for my comp) and the Realtek site (sound card creator) and all of them are giving me the same results.

Furthermore, I even tried the System Restore and it wouldn't work complaining about an anti-virus when all of mine are already disabled. I checked what the System Restore would affect too and nothing for my driver was in there as far as I know.

I'm really not sure what my options are now, and it's sucks not having any sound.

Please help me out! Thanks!

I don't know if any of this is related, but I wanted to provide as much information as I could for you gurus to deal with. So here's what happened:

I left my ASUS K55A laptop in sleep mode. I opened the lid to wake it up, logged in, and then everything started to load really slowly. This hasn't happened before, and the computer quickly BSOD'd in that new Windows 8.1 fashion. It restarted and scanned/repaired my D drive, again in a very slow manner. It took maybe 20 minutes just to get to the login screen (as opposed to maybe a minute). I login, and again, everything's very slow. This time, I just hit the power button and reset the laptop that way, hoping it'd fix things. Unfortunately, the same thing happens. After doing this about 2 or 3 more times, each time spending about 20 to 30 minutes, I just let it run after I log in. I manage to click the "Restart" option on the side after waiting eons for it to respond to my clicks. I get it to load and it booted up normally.

Or so I thought.

My D drive was suddenly inaccessible and my little volume speaker at the bottom right had the red X beside it, saying "No Audio Output Device is Installed". I spend another billion years trying to fix my D drive, changing permissions and allowing full control, and eventually getting full access again, most likely with some unknown ramifications. I found out after that although my C drive didn't suffer from the same problem as my D drive, the C drive would keep asking me f... Read more

A:Asus Laptop/RealTek "No Audio Output Device is Installed"

From your description, I'm going to suggest what I try to avoid at all costs. Do a complete reinstall. I know its a hassle but sometimes its what is needed.

Backup your user data to some external media (USB flash drive, CD/DVD media, etc) first as the reinstall will wipe it all out. Then do the reinstall, using the recovery mode that I assume ASUS has (most PC vendors have a recovery partition on the hard drive that will allow restoring to the original factory condition).

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on my Dell Inspiron E1505.

I have had no problems with it for several years; however, recently my computer has booted with a red 'X' on my audio and tells me that "No Audio Output Device is Installed." I checked my Drivers and my High Definition Sound and 2 Base System Device drivers have Yellow Question Marks by them. I tried to update the drivers manually but it says Windows Cannot Find Support for your Base System Device and it says my High Definition Audio is already up to date. I have also tried uninstalling the drivers and rebooting Windows to let the system automatically search and update the drivers. This too has failed. I do not have my Windows 7 disc available at the moment to be able to do a clean install.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

No sound.
Little speaker with the red 'x' appeared yesterday
I have gone through the whole update drivers circus to no avail, my laptop can't detect that it has speakers built in so it doesn't bother finding a driver for them.

This is where I am at:
- Intel Display Audio is the only driver installed for sound
- This means that sound works when the laptop is plugged into an HDMI
- When HDMI is not plugged in, the computer cannot find the built in speakers.
- I have Linux on this system and audio does not work there as well

I would call this a broken chipset, but the fact that the computer still processes audio with the HDMI cable attached is confusing me. Also, the 'audio board' for this laptop has 2 usb ports attached to it, and those both work fine.

Any help would be appreciated

Hi @JD_gin?,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion x2 Notebook and issues with sound drivers not installed correctly. In the Device Manager, right-click on Double-click on Sound, video, and game controllers and select all that are listed and uninstall the Driver Software. Here is the download to the Realtek High-Definition (HD) Audio Driversp69248.exe. You could  try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows.  Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed! You could also try in the Device Manager, click the arrow next to Display Adaptors to expand that categoryRight-click on Graphics and select Update Driver Software if more than 1 Graphics adapter do 1 at a time.Choose the option to Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software.The Notebook should find and automatically install the updated driverAfter the installation is complete, restart your Notebook.Please let me know how this goes.You can say thanks for trying to help by clicking the Thumbs Up below!.Thanks.

Hello,

first I already wanna thank everybody who replies to this and try to help me. Yesterday morning I tried to download a sound driver that would make the Stereo Mix option available. It was not from the original website of Realtek or HP. It was from here: http://driveragent.com/c/archive/196a161c/Realtek-High-Definition-audio#summary. After I finished the installation and restarted my PC there was a red cross next to the sound icon and when I tried to open volumemixer it said 'No audio output device installed'. I tried to uninstall it with system restore. Than I also tried to install the latest sound drivers from the Realtek and HP site but both didn't work. Also I saw on another topic that maybe some services were stopped but that wasn't. Now I really don't know what to do. Hope someone can help me.

I'm running a Dell XPS 420, which came with Windows Vista. I decided this morning that I was going to give Windows 7 a try, backed up some media on another PC, and did a completely fresh install.

Everything worked perfectly, I didn't even have to install any drivers. My native resolution was automatically correct, the sound worked, the internet worked, everything was dandy. It worked perfectly, and for the record, I really enjoyed it. I used it for several hours, getting used to the new features and whatnot.

I went to sleep for a few hours, and then went out for a while. When I came back, the sound had stopped working. It gave me no error at the time, it just didn't work. WinAmp wouldn't play my MP3s, Youtube videos were without audio, system sounds weren't playing, and yet, the volume was enabled and at an audible level of 67. My speakers were still connected properly, too.

I figured maybe a reboot was in order, and when I restarted, there was no sound still. Now, however, the speaker taskbar icon had a red x next to it, with the words "No Audio Output Device is installed." on the tooltip. I rebooted again and there was no change.

Using the Windows 7 trouble shooter, it says that "Hardware changes might not have been detected."

The odd thing is, this has happened to me before with Windows Vista. I wanted to perform a clean re-install of Vista, and when I did so, the sound worked perfectly for a few hours, before going out again. I would re-install Vi... Read more

A:Audio stops working, "No Audio Output Device Installed"

Hi filmtrauma, welcome to the forums.

While you have been asleep, Windows Update may have installed a new Sound driver for you which may have caused this error. Open Windows Update and click 'View Update History'....

You could try downloading the latest drivers from the hardware manufacturer, a lot are now supporting Windows 7 too..

Also, is your sound hardware plugged in (to the motherboard) securely? It's rare but i've dealt with some cases of hardware coming loose, might be worth a look. Another thing to check may be the temperature of the card, it may be getting overly hot due to a dust build up (might not be, i'm not 100% up-to-date on all sound hardware).

Hope this helps

Hello, and thanks in advance for your time!Earlier this afternoon, I noticed that the sound on my Thinkpad W510 was no longer working. I hadn't really done anything of note with my computer- just updated Adobe Reader to v9.2, that I can think of. When I checked the notification area, I saw this:However, when I right click and click "Playback Devices", I get the following: I immediately checked Device Manager, and found that everything appeared to be fine:I tried uninstalled and reinstalling the Conexant and NVIDIA drivers, as well as updating BIOS. Nothing seems to help, When try to use the mute/volume buttons on the keyboard, the speaker mute button lights up when pressed, but the microphone mute and volume +/- buttons don't appear to do anything. I've also tried plugging in headphones, and that does not make any difference. When I boot from an Ubuntu CD, however, sound works fine, so I don't think that it's a hardware issue.Anything that you folks could do to point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Yesterday my sound was working fine, I walked away from my notebook for 15 minutes and came back and the sound icon had a red X against it. The error message when I hover over it is 'No Audio Output Device is installed'.

In Device Manager the error message for Realtek High Definition Audio is: This device cannot start. (Code 10), although there have been different error messages depending on where I am at with troubleshooting.

I have tried reinstalling RealTek drivers on the sound card, rolling back drivers, using sound troubleshooter, system restore etc with no luck.

I have also spoken to Windows support and they couldn't resolve the issue and suggested I contact the notebook manufacturer (ASUS). I tried doing this but ran into errors on their website.

Are there any further suggestions anyone could recommend that I try?

Hello,
I have a Toshiba Satellite L875-S7110 with Windows 8 that is a few months old now, and had been working fantastic until last night. Windows did an update, and now I have a red X over my sound icon that states "No Audio Output Device is installed."
Things I have tried so far to try to fix this:
I went to the Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers. I have "Intel(R) Display Audio" and "Realtek High Definition Audio" both listed with the little yellow caution icons on them. I have tried to disable, then enable each of them seperately and both together, which had no effect. I have tried to unistall both of them, restart the laptop, and let the drivers reinstall themselves, to no effect. I have tried downloading the latest drivers from both the Intel and Realtek product sites. The one from Intel seemed to install correctly and asked to restart the computer. There was no positive change to the audio though, stil the same message. The Realtek driver won't finish installing and throws the error: "Install Realtek HD Audio Driver Failure!! [Error Code: 0x000000FF]"
If I go to Control Panel > Sound, under both the Playback and Recording tabs, it says "No audio devices are installed."

I came home from work yesterday to find this message along with a speaker with a red x where the volue mixer is. I thought ok no big deal I'll just update the drivers. I remove and reinstall the drivers and I still have no sound. This one's got me stuck. I've tried having windows download the drivers automatically, downloading the drivers from intel directly and anything else I could think of. Sometimes I was able to get the red X to go away and it looked like it was working. However there was still no sound. I've even tested the speakers with another source and they work.

I've attached the full system specs in a text file.
The Basics though is it is a Intel 945GNT motherboard with integrated audio (I think it's a sigmatel 9223) running Windows Vista SP1

A:No Audio Output device is installed

I had the same problem, and it seems like many others are also, after the Vista SP1 update. Has something to do with audio codecs getting messed. I'm using a Realtek AC97 audio, not a high def like you, however I suspect it may be the same problem. I tried reinstalling drivers too with no luck. However, after reading around the web, this 3 step fix worked for me, and now I'm back to normal.
1. I downloaded and ran the k-lite mega codec found here.

http://www.free-codecs.com/K_Lite_Me...k_download.htm

2. In the control panel/sounds/select speakers/properties/advanced tab I hit the restore defaults button.
3. Changed back my default programs back to the one I use, windows media player, since k-lite changed defaults, and was good to go.

You might want to simply try step 2 by itself first, however if that button is greyed out, then you are already at defaults, and I'm not sure if the rest would help. I hope this gets you in the right direction, good luck.

Upgrading HDD to SSD, this means you changed the harddrive ? In this case you should do a clean install to the new Harddriver(SSD).
If you did put your HDD back, everything should do as before ?
GRUB sounds more Linux specific, did you try to install Linux ?
Maybe I read it all wrong I don't know but try to check on DEVICE MANAGER if you have installed the driver for your Sound device first.

Right click on Speaker IDT icon as shown by your image Select Disable then right click again then select enable. Do you have sound now? If so this is a known bug with Windows or the drivers. My girl friend has the same audio from IDT in which she had it cut out on her I would disable it then enable to fix it. My girl friends laptop does not do that anymore She has a Hp Probook 6455b. I believe it is a Windows bug with the IDT audio driver. Since then she does not have that issue. Perhaps an update was downloaded and installed to fix the issue I have no idea.

Im pretty sure it is just a driver. Try this. Safe boot (F8) and un-install the driver. On reboot vista should find a driver. see if it works. If not let us know and I will research it for you.

A:No Audio Output Device is installed.

System Specs would be nice for someone to try and help you.
However, in many PC's when you do an install you have to (1) Install Windows (2) Install chipset drivers (for motherboard) and (3) install device drivers such as sound, video, ethernet, etc. If you didn't do this on installation, and especially the chipset drivers, that could be the problem.

WHat kind of sound card do you have? I have a Soundblaster X-Fi fatal1ty FPS and, although it is listed in Device Manager it has a yellow exclamation in it and the red triangle is over the volume icon.
My card works perfectly under XP Pro.
Have you entered Hibernation at all? Under power options, check to see if you have hibernate on. I heard in one forum that hibernate kicks Vista into this state but, as yet, no one has provided a fix.

I installed the latest required updates to my HP Pavilion DV6000 and now I have a speaker symbol with a red circle and white "X" inside of it saying that there is no audio output device installed. I do not know what happened for this to happen. I scanned my computer for viruses and have none. It seems like its a Vista problem from what I have been able to gather from reading but what ever it is I hope you can help. If you need any further info I will have to provide it as you request it because I don't know much other than what I just told you but I'll try and get you what you need so you can help me. thx.

See if re-installing the current sound driver will help. See below article (mainly method 5)

I have no sound out of a sudden. I checked my Device Manager but can't find anything related to sound. Please help!

A:No audio output device is installed

The first suggestion is to use System Restore and restore the PC back to a date when it did work.

System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. Select an available restore date that is PRIOR to whatever happened.

I know this is a repetitive topic, but I can not seem to figure this one out.

It is a HP Laptop DV9815nr. I do not know much about it as it is not mine, but the problem is the audio was cutting out and now there is nothing. The computer is not recognizing any type of audio device installed. Even in Device Manager, there is no option for Sound, game and controllers. I have tried downloading the driver and installing, but no luck there.

No viruses and no other problems. Any ideas? Thanks.

Make sure that the sound is Enabled int he bios, If not the Device Manager wont pick up any on Bord sound cards.

I have searched the net for more than 1 month!
Couldn't find anything that would help... So do not flame please I know there are topics like this but a bit differrent.
So... I got this problem once, got rid of it by uninstalling my audio device (Realtek HD Audio), after restart it was found automatically on logon and re-installed.
Had no problems with it for a few monts, but got it again...
Wanted to do the same thing, but when I got to control panel there was no Sound and Video Controller suboption in it...
So I started looking for clues, but everybody has the problem I had before and got rid of it easy as I did.
The sound was 95% of the time off and sometimes it appearred (On computer start). It freaks me off really, lol!
So, I start my computer and have a speaker with a red X mark on it and it writes ''No audio output device is installed''.
Dunno what to do... Tried to reinstall the driver several times - not working...
I guess my sound card is the problem?

Ok, so here' s my problem:
I got an Acer ASPIRE 5520G, i got it this year in April.
It has Windows Vista Home Premium.
One day, some automatic updates were installed (dont ask me whose cuz i really dunno). Then i restarted my laptop to make that updates installed... They have normally installed and my laptop restarted again, as always. Then before Windows started, some window Startup Repair started. It repaired something (i hope so). Then my laptop was able to start at normal... BUT WITH NO SOUND!!! On system try it writes ''No Audio Output Device is installed''. I went to a lot of forums but didnt find any solution for this. I have Realtek High Definition Audio installed. When i go to device manager it writes:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39).
When i go to check for solutions and details it writes:
Description:
Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code is 39.

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Users\Zadro\AppData\Local\Temp\DMI5C14.tmp.log.xml
C:\Windows\inf\hdaudbus.inf
Any help would be really appreciated, but have on mind that i'm no some Computer Wizard. Thx in forward!!!

Hi,

I have a laptop on which Vista Home Premuium, Service Pack 2 is installed.
Sometimes after a reboot, my sound symbol is covered by a red/white crosss with the message "No audio output device is installed".

In Device Manager, sound is not listed so updating/installing driver there is not an option.

The problem usually corrects itself after a cold boot but now even this is not working!!

Please help.

A:No audio output device is installed

I'd take that as a sign that the device is failing/has failed...and just try a cheap physical sound card.<<In Device Manager, sound is not listed so updating/installing driver there is not an option>>I don't believe that, since Windows will install some defaults whether there is a sound controller installed or not. Sound, video, and Game Controllers should appear in Device Manager. Installing drivers installs the audio controller.I would ensure that I had attempted to install the correct drivers...before I wrote the audio function off.Louis

Okay well this just started happening like two weeks ago, I started up my computer and there was no audio, my friend told me restarting should fix it, I did and it started working. Well, now I have to restart my computer soon after I boot it up. The audio always comes back when I restart. I had Realtek under the Sound, Video and Game controllers tab but it's gone now, the program however is still installed.
I'm on a 64 bit Windows Vista. I've tried RE-Downloading Realtek drivers but it won't work, also tried the drivers in your Driver List but it says I need Administrative privileges or something and this account is the Administrator. Any help is appreciated.

This is how it looks before I restart.

And here it is after I restart.

Realtek doesn't even bother showing up anymore, instead it is replaced with High Definition Audio Device, at least I get to hear sound with that one.

Hi!

My computer became quite infected, but now is nearly fixed thanks to help from a tech in the Security section. Still, I have a sound issue. When I hover over the sound icon on the taskbar it says that "No Audio Output Device is installed".

I went to the Compaq site and downloaded the latest driver, but I still get the same message. Can anyone help with this issue?

Hello,

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.

Go into device manager and show hidden devices. This is in the view menu.
Are there any devices with a red cross or yellow exclamation mark next to them?
Try doing a restore to a time before this started to happen.
Are you using the 64 or 32 bit drivers?
