    On my Dell Inspiron 1470, I keep getting the message that "no audio input device is installed" over the speaker in the lower right, along with a red x. Nothing shows up for audio in the device manager, or in system info. I've attempted a number of things. I've reinstalled the realtek driver, checked for hardware changes, made sure i'm up to date, uninstalled older updates, but nothing seems to work. Randomly after I restart my computer sometimes the sound will be back, but it's only a matter of time before it dies again. Why is this happening, and what can I do?
