    hi you could try system restore to a date before the problem began or try looking in start control panel and in classic view device manager and check for any yellow ! anywhere in there but in particular sound and game controllers if you have any go to your comps mfr support website and download and install the latest drivers for you model and it may be worthwhile to do even if nothing seems out of order in device manager

    I'm having the same problem. I have tried everything to fix but no go! I keeping getting the error message "No Audio Device installed. I'm pretty sure the audio card is on the mother board and if it has gone bad I'm not sure what to do other then buying a audio card and installing it. How can I determen if the audio device has gone bad?

    If you have checked everything Joeten said and the computer is still in warranty contact the manufacturer. Most diagnostics for sound cards consist of, is there a sound device, are the drivers ok, do you hear sound.
