Hi, i see there are several cases of audio missing from Pc's and there doesn't seem to be a quick fix. A friend of mine has a Packard Bell BV IMEDIA 2215 PB80135701 32 bit running Vista Home Premium. He wanted to connect the PC to a TV and put a lead with a scart plug on one side into the TV and a jack plug on the other end into the black socket on the back of the PC. The connection wasn't successful but he noticed after there was a red x instead of the speaker icon and a message "No Audio Output Device Is Installed" I dont know if the lead damaged the drivers in any way. In Device manager there are no warning asterisks but some things including speaker stated that there were no drivers. I tried update and was told the drivers are the newest. I have tried driver sites that scan the pc and will update drivers but they want paying. Is there a scan facility in the Packard Bell site that will scan and tell me what drivers i am missing. I have returned the PC back to factory settings via All Programs and i would have thought the drivers would work but they dont. Thanks for any advice

Thank You. I downloaded the Audio drivers from the Packard Bell site but they didn't work. In the Bios settings HD audio is enabled. I set everything to default but still nothing. I'm wondering if damage has been caused by plugging in to a tv set. Is there such thing as a universal audio driver for Vista or does it have to be as the one thats installed Realtek. I have also noticed in device manager there is no Sound Video and Game controller icon. Its missing

My system tray shows a volume control with a red X on it and although my device manager says the device is working properly, no sounds come out, and the volume mixer complains that "no audio device is installed" ; windows vista, 32 bit, Packard Bell laptop 4 years old. I have tried all the "usual" stuff like Device Manager and so on........
The usual stuff - enable/disable, uninstall/re-install, also system restore etc
Nothing of the above works....
Also, since the problem with the sound device started I can´t upgrade to SP2 or install updates for vista.
I have two identical laptops and I have this problem with 1 of them. So...
