I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

got a pc which wont work, it keeps asking fr the boot disk. this doesnt matter - its an old heap of junk which doesnt need fixing. i dont even know which OS it was using at present. (i will find out tomorrow)

I need to get the data off the the harddrive which it used.

the drive is only 10gb, its a fujitsu MP3102AT drive.

i tried ubcd4win but the pc kept asking for floppy, i set the boot options in the bios to cd, but it still wont load.

EDIT: got it to load the cd drive - ubcd loaded, but isnt recognising the hard drive.

This hard drive just wont be picked up or recognised in any machine i have, is it just fuked completley?
this all adds to experience!

Hello Angiesluck

It w2ould be helpfull if you were to fill out your system specs including a complete model number. (I believe it is prefixed with NP perhaps?)

You could go to here; Samsung and try downloading and installing the Chipset drivers for your Laptop PC.

I hope this helps

In your BIOS, do you have an option for Azalia codec? is it enabled?

Also, did you know you have to install the Drivers twice? The first time removes the old drivers, the second time installs the new driver.

Try disabling your audio device in device manager, reboot your computer and let the drivers reinstall.

If this does not work, try and download a new driver from your pc manufacturers website.

I'm new to Windows 8 and I'm having a hard time managing my way around. My windows automatically installed almost all of my drivers, but failed to recognize the coprocessor. When i open the properties it says:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.

When i try to find the driver automatically,it fails, but i cant find them aswell.

My motherboard is ASROCK 939a8x-m, therefore it has an nvidia chipset in it. I fail to find the neccessary drivers aswell and i don't know what else to do.

Can someone please help me with this?

Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and new to forums in general. I have a problem with my laptop all of a sudden. I went to you tube the other day and had no audio sound coming from my computer. Using my limited computer knowledge, I went to Control Panel then Sound and I have 3 tabs, Playback, Recording and Sounds. Playback and Recording both say "No audio devices are installed." My little speaker down in the lower right corner of the task bar has a little red circle with a white "x" in it. When I hold my mouse over the little speaker in the task bar, it says " No audio output device is installed". When I right click on the little speaker, a box pops up and the option to "Open the volume mixer" is ghosted out.

Why did this happen and what are my options?



A:No Audio devices are installed

Welcome Mark
Go to search by the start button
Type device manager
In device manager, you may see a small yellow triangle, near the audio driver, if so download the most current driver as iyours is corrupt.
If not small triangle, update to the newest driver as this may be the cause of the problem

I need help. My computer is a Gateway Support - 1015229R*Gateway FX7024 Desktop Computer

I had a misadventure with the original hard drive and bought a new one. Installed Vista on the new hard drive and got things going fine again except for the audio missing.

I had installed through windows update 'Matrix Storage Manager' and having an up and running PC before that install ruined the hard drive. I have no way to get into the recovey tools to make it so much easier so I'm forced to do it all manually. Last thing to do is figuring out how to get the audio going.

Any help would be awesome.

A:No audio devices are installed.

Is you audio card dsiplayed in the device manager and its just a driver issue?

Make sure your On-Board Soundcard is enabled! You could check the BIOS Settings for this first.

This seems to be your soundcard at least when i read the psecs you send:
8-channel audio output using the Sigmatel / IDT-STAC9271 10-channel audio codec
HD audio link header (optional)

I know this topic has been brought up a number of times before however I have still been unable to correct this issue with previous troubleshooting.

The History-Suspected power surge, replaced hard drive, motherboard, and power supply. Reinstalled Windows, Vista 32-bit.

Since this happened I am informed via control panel that No Audio Devices are Installed. My speaker icon in the task bar has the dreaded red X over it.

I have two different sets of speakers I have tried. Both sets of speakers work on another computer. In device manager I have attempted to update drivers, uninstall and reinstall, disable and re-enable, to no avail.

I have set BIOS to default as per previous threads on this subject.

I am happy to provide any further information sought, I am not terribly technical but can follow instructions like a pro. Thank you.

Hi, all... I have a Promise Ultra133 TX2 IDE controller card which affords me two additional ATA133 channels, each with two hard drives attached. I also have a single HDD attached to the on-board IDE channel, and a DVD drive and DVD burner attached to the secondary on-board IDE channel.

The thing is, when I click on 'My Computer' it only shows 5 devices - my primary on-board IDE HDD, my DVD drive (not the burner) and three of the four HDD's connected through the controller card. They don't show up in Disk Management either. The drives are lettered consecutively (IDE primary channel HDD, C:, DVD secondary channel, D:, then E:, F: and G: for the (three visible of four) HDD's attached via the controller).

Why can't I see these two drives? Is there a limit on how many physical drives you can install on XP?

Are you using the Dell supplied sound drivers? I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum and we have found that not using the Dell sound drivers can cause problems in some systems.

Dell does not support Win 7 (no Win 7 drivers) for the XPS420 however they do support Vista and the Vista drivers should work without problems. The Vista SigmaTel driver is HERE If you have anything other than the Dell SigmaTel driver, suggest you uninstall whatever you have and install the Dell SigmaTel driver.

Running Vista on an HP laptop.  Volume icon now has a red X over it and I have no sound.  I went through all the common fixes including trying to download new audio drivers all to no avail.  Any ideas anyone?

A:No audio output devices installed

This is a common problem in Vista and unfortunately it is usually solved by reinstalling the OS. When you said you did all the standard steps, did you follow the steps here. Did you try a System Restore before the problem occurred?
To rule out a hardware failure you could download a small linux distro, Puppy 5.7 is good. Try playing a sound file. If you do not get sound in Puppy then I would say your internal sound card has failed. You may want to look at purchasing a USB sound dongle good for earphones only.

A:No Audio Devices Are Installed in Recording Tab

The "HD Audio Device" is a generic Windows installed sound driver. You need the Win 7 (or Vista) driver supplied by Toshiba. In many cases the vendor (Toshiba) supplied driver is needed for the sound to work correctly.

You may also need to install the motherboard chipset drivers first as the chipset drivers define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard.

Here is the drivers from Toshiba Toshiba Drivers Download - Toshiba

A:No Audio Devices Installed after update

First of all, welcome to BC !
As a first step I would go to the Dell web-site and download and install the audiio drivers for your Inspiron and see if that solves your problem. Your Dell probably has a barcode on it somewhere. If you copy the barcode number and type it into the search box on the service page on the Dell web-site you will normally be taken to a page which has all the drivers for your computer - I wish more manufacturers would do this !
If this gets you your sound back, great. If it doesn't, post back.
As for your non-running services, if you go into 'Computer management' you can decide how services you want to run startup. To get there, clcik 'Start', RIGHT click on 'Computer' in the start menu, then click 'Manage' in the drop-down menu that appears. Services are at the bottom of the dialogue box. If you click any service you want to change the startup for, click on the service, then RIGHT click and in the dialogue box that appears you will find the option to change the startup type. Your choices are 'automatic', 'Manual' and 'Disable'.

A:No audio output devices installed, after new boot of 7

There is no sound icon in the notification area? Did you upgrade to windows 7 or did you do a clean install? With doing an upgrade you can run into problems like this. It's just part of it. It's recommend to do a clean install and then install all updated drivers then install all the MS updates including any SP if available.

Hi, I have a Dell XPS 420 running Windows 7.
When I first tried plugging in some speaker they were not detected so I changed the BIOS to use the on board audio (from auto select to on) and my speakers have worked ever since.
Yesterday I tried using a microphone (turtle beach x12 headset, speakers worked) and it is not detected (front and back panel). I tired a different microphone encase the headset was faulty and it wasnt detected either. So I tried my headset on my other computer and it worked straight away).
I've been reading forms etc but cant find a solution...
Any ideas?


PS. I tried another headset of mine which is only usb (no speaker or mic jack) and it works.
Also as the XPS 420 isn't sold with windows 7 drivers can be a bit of a bind

A:Microphone not detected (no audio devices installed)

Device detection is a function of the drivers (ie: audio drivers). So if it's not working properly, I'd suspect the drivers. If there aren't any Win7 drivers, then your best bet would be to get an addon sound card with Win7 support.

Hello I have an Acer Aspire One AS laptop which I upgraded to a retail version of Windows Ultimate For many months everything worked great About a week ago I installed some updates that Microsoft pushed out After those updates finished installing my audio device was no longer recognized by my machine Specifically when I try to turn on the volume I get a message stating quot No Audio Devices Are Installed quot Similarly I cannot find any audio devices through the control panel or through Start- gt Run- gt msinfo I first tried downloading the latest drivers from Acer's site and installing them That did not correct the problem and I've tried several times I then tried restoring the system to an earlier date when everything was fine and that too has not solved anything I have read in other threads about changing some settings in the BIOS but I will admit that I am unclear on how to do this Any additional hypotheses theories would be greatly appreciated Acer's default reply is Audio (No Acer Devices Are Installed) 1410 to pay for them to send me a new OS and reinstall that I'm less than thrilled with the idea Cheers Bryce

A:Acer 1410 (No Audio Devices Are Installed)

Check device manager to see how audio device looks (yellow warning).
Try deleting the audio driver and reinstalling.
You could also roll back windows to a date when the audio worked. Then selectively upgrade MS Windows, making sure not to install any audio drivers.

A:Promise S-ATA no devices found BIOS not installed MSI NEO 875p

You have two separate controllers,the message is saying that no devices are attached to the Promise controller.The manual I looked had no mention of the Promise controller,so I'm taking this info off of the 875P Neo Series specs.Hopefully your manual has the correct info,all the connectors should be colour coded.

The Intel controller has 2 SATA ports(use these first)and 2 IDE ports,the IDE ports are only ATA100 ports,use these for the optical drives.

The Promise controller has 2 SATA ports and 2 IDE ports,these IDE ports are ATA133,use these to connect the IDE hard drives.

In the BIOS you need to have the ATA configuration=PATA+SATA,SATA keep enabled=yes,PATA channel selection=both.Also if you're putting 2 IDE(aka PATA)drives on the one cable they have to be jumpered as master and slave,with the master at the end.Hope you can make sense of it.

We are about to roll out a group policy to stop people installing USB devices that are not approved. All that is very easy to, our issue is finding already installed devices on a computer.  I can manually roll through the registry entries and try and
manually delete them but given we have hundreds of users, that is going to take forever.  Is there some software that people use that easily identifies if say a Samsung or Apple phone have been connected and delete them. Same thing for most USB sticks

How do I get Beats to become operational ?

In my device manager, the bluetooth audio is gone (it used to be there) and i also have many unknow device that related to bluetooth.

I have been searching solution for this problem for a month and yet, notthing works. Please help, im using sony vaio Model # SVS15116FXB. I also tried to download some drivers from the sony sites, but they are useless.

A:No Audio Output Devices is Installed- Sony Vaio

I would uninstall all the unknown and Bluetooth devices listed in the Device Manager. Leave that off until you get the basic sound going again. Restart the PC after uninstalling all the Bluetooth and unknown devices.

If the PC's sound device is enabled in the BIOS, Windows should detect it and install either the regular drivers or at least the generic, basic function, HIgh Definition Audio Drivers (Codec). If its not being detected and installed, the first thing is to check the BIOS. If its disabled in the BIOS then Windows will not see/detect it. If its enabled in the BIOS, reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. One of the things the chipset drivers do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard. This too affects whether the sound can be detected.

What you need to do, is to click on this link:
Download Audio Drivers for Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebooks

This will 'download' the audio driver file, R170217.EXE, to your computer. This file (R170217.EXE) will probably end up on your Desktop.

Double-click on this file, to run it. This should re-install the 'audio driver' for your computer.

Recently I have had a problem on my PC where in the lower third of the left hand of my screen a tooltip keeps popping up. The tooltip says "Display Devices and Installed Apps." This tooltip seems to override everything because if I'm full screen in another application it will still pop up. When I play a fullscreen game it will keep me out into windowed mode and show the tooltip. It's fairly annoying and it even prevents me from clicking on my shortcuts or things on webpages. The thing is, there is nothing there to display that tooltip. I moved all icons away from the area and it still shows up.

Does anyone know why this is occurring and how to stop it from occcurring? At this moment I'm thinking I may have to install a new OS and see if that works.

In device manager, the devices show as "No drivers are installed for this device". However, if you click update drivers, and then manually select the Mass Storage (for example), you can install the device without a problem.
This has nothing to do with any vendor specific drivers - This is a Windows 7 issue.

Has anyone seen anything similar?
Is anyone aware of a recent update that may have had an impact on the USB stack or the operation of PnP?
Any other ideas?

A:No audio device installed error and devices wont show in Device Manager

I see three different audio driver packages at need to find the right one to install. If you install one and the system doesn't work properly...please uninstall it before trying the next one.Installing the wrong one won't do anything harmful to your just won't do any good to leave it installed.Louis

I had this same issue with Win Pro N about year ago as well and I somehow fixed it but I can't recall what I did at all besides that it was big headache to figure out Now yesterday since I got a SSD I installed Windows again and that problem is back What I checked first Nothing to see here Then I tried troubleshooter quot Hardware changes might not have been detected quot That's not very useful Let's check out Device Manager Shouldn't it be in sound Pro devices 8.1 Windows audio N are "No installed" Realtek devices category with some other entries I have that category missing altogether Properties quot This device cannot start Code quot I tried uninstalling drivers and restarting many times already Let's let Windows search for new drivers Outside of that I've tried to install two different versions of Realtek driver packages Multiple times One from Asus site that's latest for this particular laptop but officially has support only up to Win I had that driver before Windows 8.1 Pro N "No audio devices are installed" Realtek so it works with and other is from Realtek site that officially supports Win as well No success I even restored BIOS factory settings even though there aren't any sound related settings there Windows Audio service is running Checked that I re-installed Windows times One of them was just old Win Pro with no updates included second was latest Win preview and finally I installed Win Pro N back None of them had working audio Windows didn't have that issue and I know that my hardware is fine because everything works under Ubuntu

A:Windows 8.1 Pro N "No audio devices are installed" Realtek

Also I just discovered that when I installed either versions of Realtek drivers they removed all the files they copied to program files/realtek/driver folder just before finishing the installation. So they didn't even install properly.

Probably due not finding actual audio hardware it can use? Then it's entirely Windows problem.

I have installed the following printers:

The printers work and are all displayed from Word, IE, etc, but only one printer shows up in Windows 7 Devices & Printers - usually whichever is selected as default printer. If I remove the displayed printer, it shows me another one. When I first installed, it showed me all the printers, but problems started after I had to remove and reinstall my printers.

Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

Only difference between the D2 and the D2X is one os PCI (D2), and the other is PCI-E (D2X), so you're not missing anything that way. The speaker test not working is something else. You using the latest driver from Asus (Version:, or the one that came on the disk with the card?

Any fix, or is system Broken.


A:Devices and Printers - devices being displayed multiple times

Looks like Ghosts of DLNA devices. Start by taking offline any DLNA capable gear, reboot the Gateway and also clear its IP Table.

Also clear out those ghosts from Devices and Printers.

For some reason this started in Windows 7, when Microsoft started to play games with DLNA and media Shares.

When going into my Microsoft account, then under 'Devices', there are 4 devices linked.
The number of devices is correct, but that's it.
All other data is incorrect, or outdated.

I have 2 'real' PC's and 2 VM's using 1 single retail Windows 10 Pro and 3 upgrades from 7/8->10
However, 'devices' show 1 'real' PC (n?t the one with the retail W10 version, but the one running on an upgrade) and 3 VM's.

I assume it isn't but if at all possible..., how do I get that in sync with what I am actually using.

FWIW:  Duplicate devices may appear...if one device is used to install...and a different one is used later, IME.
The ximple way to remove any apparent to delete them via Device Manager (including the use currently installed)...then reboot and reinstall the drivers if they are not automatically reinstalled by Windows.

A:Unexpected devices appear in Devices and Printers

I occasionally see seemingly random devices show up as well on some of my herd here. I can always sort out what they are though since I know my network well.

Having said that;
Windows found these devices over the network at some point. From what you've described, it sounds like the office is where this happened. I'd see about swapping out the router there if they continue to show up since some older cheap routers actually allowed traffic from their WAN side to pass to the LAN. Haven't seen that in some time, but I'd still consider the router to be the prime suspect.

Hey guys,

I just went out and bought a mic from bestbuy and I plugged it in, I had a small bit of trouble getting the headphones to work, but eventually got them working.

Now I am having trouble with the microphone part of the headset. It is plugged in properly to the back of the computer in the correct jack, but for some reason under "Recording" it is giving me the message of "No Audio Devices Are Installed."

I have no clue what to do and was wondering if anyone out there could be of assistance to me?

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!



A:Devices>Recording: "No Audio Devices Found"

I just plugged in my old headset which IS a USB headset and it recognizes it but I am unable to speak, I dont know if its because the mic doesnt work anymore or if its another problem.

My new mic is NOT a USB headset, it has two different plugs, 1 for the headphones and 1 for the microphone jack in my computer. So is it because of that feature that my computer is unable to recognize the new microphone?

hi peoples

i have installed my media centre for the 3rd time in a month. Due to various issues. (1 being sleep) Now i have installed the same drivers as the first build for HDMI audio and video, which i had perfect dvd playback and tv on, however i am faced with errors about video drivers not properly installed.

Last time it was the HDMI driver which i have installed and reinstalled 3 times. It seems every time i follow the exact same process at rebuilding vista 64 i get a different result.

Is there a way you can reset media centre so it checks the drivers all over again. I am interested in resetting audio and video if possible

Hi, audiophile, and welcome to the forums.

A:Dell SupportAssist - says driver updates are installed but still showing need to be installed after refresh?

Don't use Dell Support assist with windows 10. Windows 10 will install generic drivers if Dell doesn't have win 10 drivers. You should mention the full model name of the computer. Does Dell support your model for upgrading to win 10? If so, get the win 10 drivers from Dell Drivers and Downloads.
