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
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
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..

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..

uninstall and do a windows update for drivers...

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

I tried uninstalling and it didn't work
No such file in System32.

Could actually be a hardware problem....?

I mean is that really possible? The laptop is a little over a year old..only time I've opened the back was to put in the 2gb ram..
