  2. No Audio Output Device is Installed

    Hi,

    You will need to select Windows 8 from the drop down list while installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    I would suggest you to try setting the speaker as default audio output by following the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Right click on the sound icon on the right bottom corner of the taskbar.

    2. Select "playback devices".

    3. If "speaker" is not set as the default device, highlight it and click "set as default".

    5. Save the changes.

    Let us know the result.

    Hello JRosales2112

    Please follow these steps

    Open Settings.

    Click on Update & Security.

    Click on Troubleshoot.

    Select the Playing Audio option.

    Click the Run the troubleshooter button.

    If That didn't work

    Try update or uninstall and reinstall the drivers

    How update drivers

    Go to Device Manager > select audio inputs and outputs > right click in the Speakers > Update driver

    If that didn't work

    Uninstall and install the drivers

    Go to Device Manager > select audio inputs and outputs > right click in the Speakers > Uninstall Restart your PC, and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    If Windows doesn't find a new driver, you can try looking for one on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions.

    I hope it helps
