Vista Link and Sound Device Problem

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Joydeep Chakrabarty, Jul 18, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    Few days back, I was installing/uninstalling some programs. I don't know
    what went wrong, suddenly I found the links in "Computer" are not working.
    When I open "My Computer" ("Computer" in Vista), all the links like "Device
    Manager", "Remote Settings" etc are not working. It says for "Device
    Manager" - "Windows cannot find '%SystemRoot%\\system32\devmgmt.msc".
    However, if I run the same command from a DOS window, it exists. This is
    same for all the other links.

    My sound icon in the task bar also marked a permanent red cross. If I open
    Volume Mixer, it says - No audio device found. But I can still hear sound.
    I don't know what to do. Please help me.

    Thanks and regards,
    Jaydip Chakrabarty

    try the following solution I found at 'Answers to the dreaded No audio
    output device installed |' (

    Find the latest version of your driver, download it, uninstall your
    current driver and install the new one. After uninstalling the driver
    and reboot it to automatically reinstall it, the audio still may not
    work. sometimes after putting the system in hibernate mode and coming
    back, the audio worked.

    They have many suggestions if doesn't work.
