    I'm running vista on my hp g6000 notebook & this past month I've been haunted with the dreaded red x over my volume with the "no audio output device is installed". Now when I say I've tried all the easy solutions I really mean it eg. device manager where neither my sound or modem where the Conexant & HD audio are supposed to be are there, recovery manager with the reinstall that says it is complete that does nothing, services where I have reset the windows audio & restarted to no avail. All the above so called solutions have given me the odd faint hope but only last for a minute maybe two before it would go again. I have un installed the audio drivers when I got it back for a minute & downloaded the drivers from hp's site to no avail also. I have a friend who would be more computer literate than me who tried & failed & he advised me to bite the bullet & restore the factory settings which I did, after a day of windows updates it came back & lasted for a day & gone again, right back where I started. I really need some help here cause it is affecting my college work not having the audio. Sorry for the long post but I'm in dire straights here. Any new ideas or help would be appreciated so much. Thanks for reading "if you did".:mad:

    This is beginning to sound like a hardware problem with your integrated sound on your motherboard. Does you lab top have enough room for the vents to dissipate the heat, do you keep your lab top elevated if the vents don't get enough room to vent the heat. There are several heat monitoring programs that I recently found out about called Speed Fan, Real Temp ,and CPUcool. CPUcool being the easiest to use. Install a heat monitoring program. Try letting the computer sit for a while, install driver if it works, note the temperatures. If it stops working during use, note the temperatures if they have changed drastically.

    If it is the integrated sound, a cheaper solution might be a sound card. I don't have much experience with lab tops, I don't know if there are PCI fans or cooler fans for lab tops or not.
