Having problems with your Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop ?

Sound not working on winows Vista

\015 I have a Windows Vista computer. There's a red x over my sound icon and it says that no audio device is installed even though I just installed one. I've tried everything and don't know what to do. It's not muted and I've tried to 'set default' many different times but it's grayed out. The audio driver I have is 'Realtek High Definition Audio' Any help would be wonderful!\015

Answers :

I would make sure you are installing the right driver for the audio card you have, and reinstall it.
'Realtek High Definition Audio' is the name of the device, the driver for it is called something like WDM_235.exe
You should use only one audio device - if there are 2 it will be a conflict. \012
First of all go to Start | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager and see if you have another audio device and, if not, what is exactly the problem - most likely a bad driver install. If it's that then go directly to the Realtek site http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false and download (as in Save, not Run) the latest driver. Once you have it remove all other Realtek driver present, reboot and after closing the New hardware window launch the one you downloaded.
