    Hello,
    I recently tried installing a program a friend of mine gave to me in a cd, but it ended up messing up my computer, After installing it, my computer kept showing this blue screen saying windows had been shut down to prevent damages. After awhile, it came back normal but I found out that there was no sound playing on the computer, the little speaker icon has a big red X mark and it says " No Audio Output Device is Installed", and Im not sure why, I;ve had this computer (Hp Pavillion dv6000) with Windows vista and I've never had a single problem with it until now. How can I get my sound back?

    Help will be really appreciated! Thanks!

    Sounds (excuse the pun!) like an HD Audio Driver issue. I'd go to the HP website, search for your box and click the drivers and updates link. Download and install the Audio Drivers and reboot. That should solve the problem, but if it doesn't just post again and we'll have a re-think...
