No audio output device installed
Hi all,

speaker symbol in the task bar shows a red "x", no sound.

Hereīs my story:
got a DELL XPS M1530 with pre-installed Vista Home Premium, everything was working fine.

Last week installed a USB audio device TASCAM US-122L and Steinberg CuBase LE4 to record old LPs into the Laptop. Worked for a couple of days, then when I recorded an Elvis LP(I donīt think it happened because if this ) and saved one song (export as .wav) and tried to start the .wav via Explorer, I got a blue screen and a reboot. Since then Iīm in trouble. No sound anymore.

Soundchip is a SigmaTel.
Uninstalled the drivers, reinstalled drivers (3 different versions from DELL support), let Vista install itīs own drivers - no success.
Unfortunately Iīm not able to say which audio driver version was installed before the "crash".
When running the DELL test utilities sound works fine, so I think itīs a Vista thing, not the driver itself....

Any help appreciated very much!!!
As a musician not having sound on your laptop is like being deaf

TIA
Cheers
Tom

Re: No audio output device installed
Hi folks,

I have sound again!!!

Here is what I did:
from an Acronis-Backup from November,13 I restored the folder c:\windows\system32\config
because I saw in the System Log that these files were scrambled anyhow when my Laptop crashed (caused by a faulty memory module - aaargh!).

This may not be a "clean" solution, since I seem to have "Windows Update" Problems now. Well...

BUT I HAVE SOUND AGAIN!

Cheers
Tom
