No Audio Output Device Installed - How I Fixed It

[ Edited ]

Here's how I got my audio to work again in my Toshiba Satellite laptop.

 

Put the laptop to sleep ( Wait till lights go out. The power icon should glow orange.)

Hit any key to wake up the machine and log back in.

Immediately start moving the volume scroll wheel back and forth until the red cross on your taskbar's audio icon disappears.

 

As your computer awakens from sleep mode, it will try to re-establish communication with its hardware; this is when your computer should detect the communication activity being sent by the audio device as a result of you manually moving the volume scroll wheel.

 

Hope this helps someone!

Oh my gosh this actually worked. I've been dealing with this since I bought my laptop. Thank you so much!

Re: No Audio Output Device Installed - How I Fixed It

I have had the same problem--unfortunately this method did not work for me.  However I was able to fix it by doing the following:

 

1. Take the battery out of the laptop

 

2. Hold down the power button for 60 seconds

 

3. Put the battery back in

 

4. Start the computer normally--the problem should be fixed

 

This worked perfectly for me!  Hopefully this helps others who weren't able to fix it using KBHR's method.

Neither of these suggestions worked for me. Argh...
