My little brother was messing with my computer one day, when i came back in the room my computer was shut off. I tried to turn it back on but it wouldn't work so i restored it to factory setting, but now the sound doesn't work. When i scroll over the speaker icon on the taskbar it says "No Audio Output device is installed". I've tried nearly EVERYTHING.
I've Disabled and Enabled my sound drivers. I've tried updating my drivers. I've went to device manager and went to my driver and pressed "Scan for hardware changes". I've tried re-installing my drivers. And i downloaded that vista update that was supposedly made to fix this problem, And I've made sure that my speakers were plugged in. Someone give me suggestions on what i should do please? Thanks in advance!

Is your sound manager a card or is it on the motherboard?

That's what I was going to suggest, depending on your answer. Glad it's working.
