Answers :

I have some questions for you:

1) what did you do right before this happened?
***********Did you just get the computer?
***********Did you just install or uninstall something?
***********Did you just reformat / restore your computer
***********Anything else?

2) is your title "Media Device is not found for sound" an error msg, or your impression. What exactly are the symptoms.
*********** Is the sound just not working
*********** are you getting this msg
*********** Other

Pending your reply (and depending on the answers) here are some basics tips. Maybe you will luck out:

-Check if your sound card is activated in BIOS (when you start your computer you should see a function key mentioned to "enter setup" or some similar statement. Prob F2.
***** if option to restore to defaults exists consider using it.

- Make sure you have the correct drivers for your operating system. If Vista, consider 32/64bit.

-Try to reinstall the drivers again. Start by uninstalling them in your "Device Manager" (not disabling but uninstalling them)

-If this does not work go directly to the sound device manufacturer's website and download the most current driver there. Follow the above steps of uninstalling and install the new drivers.

-If this does not work try less current versions of the driver. The newest drivers do not always work as well as the previous versions.

-Download a new chipset (google the word chipset for info) you can find this on the manufactors website usually by using their search bar or by browsing "downloads"

-If you know when this problem began > go to Start > Control Panel > Add remove programs > choose the "Show Updates" box at the top > beside "Sort By" choose "Date Last Used" > Now look for windows updates that occurred around the time of problem began. If there are any remove them.

** Restart your computer. If still not working, try to reinstall the driver.
**** If this fixes it remember that the Microsoft Update will likely try to update onto your computer again. You will have to stop this.

- Printer updates (especially HP) have been know to mess with other drivers. Consider uninstalling your printer temporarily. If this works, just disable printer updates when you reinstall.

- If the problem is only the fact that there is no audio (no error message) Check if you can get sound out of a pair of headphones. Often times there is a problem with the electrical feedback loop that turns off your computer sound when you plug in headphones. Make sure to wiggle them around.

- Sounds stupid, but make sure the driver is "enabled" as well as installed.

-If you are comfortable using MSCONFIG, I would look at each of your services and startup programs for Malware. You can google MSCONFIG for detailed instructions. Briefly: Click Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > OK > Under the startup and Services tabs check each item to see if it is supposed to be there. By googleing any of these wierd names you should be directed to a several sites which explain each of these processes. Make sure you run some scanning software as well.

Try to re install the driver if the same problem restor you computer the install the uaa update then insta first the sound driver...
\015\012sometimes the problem comes from the operating system because you installed some sound driver not compatible..
