    Hi,

    I have just installed the audio driver for my motherboard, restarted the computer and it seems that driver doesn't do anything at all. I have the speaker icon in the tray bar with a red 'x' on it, and it says: "No Audio Output Device is installed". Why is that? I tried the driver that's on the motherboard CD and also the one from Realtek's website, and while they are different versions, the problem is identical.

    Please advise. :)

    Thanks for the reply!
    The details about my computer are all obsolete, including the OS. I have solved the problem by enabling the Azalia codec in my BIOS. I had disabled it a few days ago because I have a dedicated audio card, but I need the onboard for its pre-amplified mic input.

    Thanks again.
