I have a laptop with Windows Vista. All of a sudden there is a red and white X over the sound icon on the system tray. If i put the cursor over it, it says "No Audio Output Device" is installed. I have Googled this a few times, and the first suggestion I am seeing is to go to Device Manager and uninstall and reinstall the driver. There is no sound driver there anymore all of a sudden... I've gone to HP's website and tried to manually install the driver, and it installs but I get an error saying "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver".

I'm out of ideas... Anyone? I have an HP dv2810ca.

The list of drivers for your laptop is incomplete

I do know on this model that you need to have the UAA buss driver installed befor the audio driver

Your best bet would be to contact HP

Thanks for the reply. I tried installing the drivers to no avail. I contacted HP and they pointed me to to the UAA Driver. That turned out to be the problem, so all is well now.
