  1. Audio device uninstalled itself/doesn't seem to be connected to my laptop??


    I have an hp 3168ngw. After a restart, the audio has ceased to function. The audio troubleshooter can't seem to find anything to troubleshoot, and after checking through Hardware and Sound>Manage Audio Devices the Playback and Recording tabs say "no audio devices are installed".


    How can I restore functionality to my laptop's speakers?

    :)

    You may face this issue if proper audio drivers are not installed on the computer or if it is corrupted. I suggest you to try the below methods and check if it helps in resolving the issue.

    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click Playing audio.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.
    Method 2:

    Uninstall sound adapter driver from the Device Manager, restart the computer and check if that helps you.


    • Press Windows and X keys together.

    • Click on Device Manager.

    • Sound, video and game controller, expand it, right click on the
      sound device and select Uninstall.

    Audio device uninstalled itself/doesn't seem to be connected to my laptop??

    Lumia 620 doesn`t connect to computer via usb cable

    Hi yall and thanks for the replies!



    Unfortunately, the were of no help.



    The phone isn`t listed in device manager, the list of devices doesn`t change if I have my phone connected to my computer(s). There are no mystery devices, no yellow triangle -markings or anything even remotely pointing to the direction the phone being connected.

    It could be that my phone has a broken usb port, but it makes me wonder that it still charges the battery when connected to a computer.



    This is not a big problem for me, that I must admit, but still, it kinda bugs me that the phone doesn`t work the way it`s supposed to work,



    Anyways, if somebody comes up with something that might help, I am most grateful.



    Have a great weekend yall!



    -



    edit: Also, I have my laptop almost always connected to charger. Tried without charger just for the heck of it, didn`t help.
