  1. No Audio Output Device is Installed


    My computer had a Windows update yesterday, after which my sound drivers stopped working. There is a red x in the sound icon with the message "No Audio Output Device is Installed." In Device Manager, the Sounds tab is hidden, and updating or reinstalling the drivers is not working. Under properties it shows "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)". I have another sound driver called the High Definition Audio Driver which is under System Devices. It shows a "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" error under properties.


    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. I have tried updating the drivers. Nothing works. Please help if you can. Thanks in advance.

    :)

    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.

    A screenshot of the Device Manager, Sounds section is still needed. Can't really offer a suggestion until I see what is showing there now.

    e.g this is mine It shows AMD which the audio for HDMI, Realtek and Tranzport which is a wireless controller for my recording studio program.
