Hi I have recently done a windows update but due to this I have no sound playback from my computer, when I hover over the sound icon I get this message 'No audio output device is installed'
On this I updated the drivers with a manual search and then manual, this didnt help.
Next I restored my pc to an earlier date when the audio was working, also didnt help.
I have checked that sound is enabled in the BIOS, nothing.
Please help as I cant even reinstall windows 7 due to my DVD drive also being broken.

Hi,

Best thing to try is do a system restore to the date previous to your update, if that produces sound then do not update your windows update with that update. It's not well known but there are updates than can mess with your system settings (not intentionally)

Let us know if that works

Steve

You can go to Start/Search and type in devmgmt.msc Right click the devmgmt.msc icon in the search results and Run As Administrator. In the Device Manager, open up Sound, Video, Game Controllers, right click your Sound Device/Properties/Driver/Roll Back Driver and roll back the driver to the previous one.
If you have a name brand computer (Dell, HP etc) you can go to the manufacturers support/download drivers site, type in your service tag# or your make and model# and download your audio driver for your computer model.
