    Default Audio Driver issue.. No Audio Output device installed

    This happened to me this morning and it's really annoying..

    I own an Acer Aspire 5520 Laptop
    Specs:
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor TK-53 1.7GHz
    2 GB DDR2 Ram
    160 GB HD
    Vista Home Prem SP1

    Well, when I turned on my laptop this morning it states that there is "No Audio Output device installed"

    I've tried the following:
    Uninstalling driver/Reinstalling driver
    Updating Driver
    System Restore
    Scan Disk
    I even went on Microsoft.com and tried to get the "fix audio issue" that they had but it had stated that I didn't need it...

    I've tried it all..so if you computer peeps have any clue what can be wrong please let me know..

    Thanks.

    If you see the speaker icon in the notification area next to the clock, right click on that and go to "Playback Devices". Then, see picture:

    I see the speaker but it has a red x on the lower right corner..

    I brought up Device Manager and it seems that the RealTek sound driver isn't even installed..

    I've installed it 20 times..

    There is nothing shown in Playback nor Recording..

    The driver should be here: c:\windows\system32\drivers\rtkvhda.sys - have a look whether you can find anything there.
