    [​IMG]Hi All,

    I have read the soltions that which you have provided, however this was different altogther and hence i started a new thread.

    My "Sound and Audio Devices Gryed out"

    This is my system configuration
    Microsoft Windows XP
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 2
    Pentium(R) 4 Cpu 3.06GHz
    3.07GHz,960 MB of RAM
    Physical Address Extension

    Troubleshooting steps that i did:
    I have checked whether the drivers are loaded properly or not & i can see the above image pasted,
    thee were no Red or Yellow icons under the device manager, as well i have installed the latest Realteck High Definition Audio from Intel(R) and still the is no sound being played in my system, I have placed SmBios.sys file and tried to look whether this might help me, but still i am like a dead fish in water, Its been a week i was looking for all the alternatives to sort this issue out.

    Can any one help me here?:eek:

    Your help would be immensley appriciated here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Click Start > Run > type services.msc

    Locate the Windows Audio service and make sure it's Started and Automatic.

    I am not an expert so I can not suggest you any solution but you can find a solution at http://www.noaudiooutput.com . Once when I had a sound problem I had found a suggestion there. They have answers depending on different causes so you too can find a solution depending on your cause. They also have an easy way for you to find your driver if you are getting any difficulties finding them.

    I assume that your sound card is Realteck High Definition Audio.
    Do you have any other sound cards in use or did you have one earlier?
    Did you install both audio and device drivers?
    You could try to go back in time to restore point, when all was still ok.
