By right-clicking and choosing playback devices same as going to Control Panel – Sounds , it said that no audio devices were installed. I suggest posting your question in the correct forum at the link below: System and Maintenance,then click: Thank you for helping us maintain CNET’s great community.

Up to Windows XP this was called “disable in current hardware profile”. Then try to disable it. However now when i try to play audio or video files there is no sound on video there is video but no sound At the audio sign there is the Speaker icon with a red and white X, similar to the mute sign however when you scroll over it, is says: I was haveing issues with my sound “no audio output device is installed” so after reading a lot of solutions to the issue i tried the one you suggested and bammm it worked inspiroh is how I did it step laptkp step: You can use AIDA Of course, make sure you don’t need the modem or if you do, troubleshoot reinstalling that while not affecting the audio.


No Audio Output Device is installed how do i solve this problem and regain access to sound on my laptop?

So Device Manager says all is well and the rest of Windows says no audio device is installed. I have the same problem with a dell inspiron; I reinstalled Vista and the sound is not installed and frustratingly, I can’t turn off the system sounds!

Of course the mute button is off. Typically, in the case of this problem, something like “modem line 0 playback” has replaced the proper audio device as the default.

I booted from the CD and audio tested perfectly fine in the diagnostics environment. Anyway, when I got everything back up almost nothing worked The first step, ALWAYS, is to check and make sure that the right sound device is selected as default in audio device setup.

Sigmatel driver from Dell didn’t help. This was helpful ssound. See the link below and make sure the model number is correct: I then uninstalled the Modem driver in Device Manager and deleted it from the system so Windows wouldn’t reinstall it.

We’ll try anything short of buying a new laptop or motherboard. Since it’s new, call Dell. But when I loaded up Windows again, nothing. Advertisements or commercial links.


Thank you so much for this advise as it fixed the problem I had. Unfortunately advice given for this situation is often misdirected.

Your “safeguards” simply keep the computer from working! I know it’s a crummy laptop, but we’re trying to band aid it until she graduates and buys herself a better one. The computer you’re having issues with is running XP.

I hope a fix is in the works!! So essentially, if you are troubleshooting Audio issues and all basic troubleshooting fails, try removing the Modem drivers and see if that helps! Hey I’m having the exact same problem, the audio icon has a red circle with a white x in it and says “no audio input device is installed” i have a dell laptop and i had no problems with the aduio till a few days ago when my compter had some problems and i reloaded windows vista home premium 32bit and ever since the aduio hasn’t worked.

Just reloading Windows isn’t enough.
