I am grinning...big big grins.


I never knew how much I liked that Windows sound
as it was disconnecting and re-starting. :)
Even the little brrrrinnng when my dial-up was finished.

When I went to the Control Panel,
it still said No Audio Device and everything was highlighted grey
so I couldn't put any checks by anything.

But then in the next tab...Audio...I could click on Windows Default
and I did.

The next tab, VOICE did NOT have AC'97 in the top slot of the two
top sections so I put them there....apply and ok.

And then when I clicked on 'Sounds and Devices' it wasn't grey
anymore and instead of saying NO AUDIO DEVICE, it said:


I Knew....knew knew knew that it would work. :)
And soon as I clicked on re-start, it made that lovely shut down melody.

Thank you SOOOOO MUCH.
I will not have to take it to the computer shop....the infections are GONE
Sound is back and my computer is working great.

Thanks for not giving up. :tazz:

I am going to post your latest instructions for the next person having
this same problem.

Your friend, Janie

Wannabe1's instructions for getting back sound when
'Sounds and Audio Devices' says No video device.
I just noticed I have the speaker icon in my bottom taskbar back. YAY

Open Control Panel and double-click on the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.

Under the "Volume" tab, put a tick in the box to "Place volume icon in the taskbar".
(I couldn't because it was grey and could not be 'clicked' on.)

Under the "Sounds" tab, select "Windows default" in the Sounds Scheme drop down menu.

Under the "Audio" tab, make sure that your AC ' 97 device is listed in the top two sections...
if not, select it from the drop down menu.

Under the "Voice" tab, make sure the AC ' 97 device is listed in both boxes...if not, select it.

Under the "Hardware" tab, look at all the devices in the list and post them here for me.

Click "Apply" and then "Ok".

Now look down by the clock...is there a little speaker there? If yes, double-click on it and make sure there is not a tick in the box next to "Mute" and that the Volume sliders are all set to at least halfway.
