Re: No Audio Output Device is Installed.
The past few days the Microsoft Update message has been showing up and
getting annoying. I hadn't updated because it always showed up while I
was in the middle of something. So yesterday I finally just let it do
it's thing.... It "updated" then restarted and now I have no sound. When
I right-click on the speaker icon and go to the Playback or Recording
tab it says "No audio devices are installed" ....this is a laptop....
they're built in.... where the eff did they go suddenly!?
Anyone have any ideas. So far I've been reading all the posts and
nothing sounds helpful and the things that DO sound like they could work
are explained half-assed and in a hurry.
I'm so sick of Microsoft and their screwups. "Updating" apparently just
means to remove the old bugs and put in new ones. Will they ever get
anything right? Are they that desperate that they have to purposely
screw up peoples' computers just so they can get emails from them?
This is probably the last time I do any updates on my laptop. I haven't
run any updates on my desktop Windows XP computer in years and
ironically I haven't had as many problems with it since.
