I'm pretty sure you guys have seen this before; sound icon with a little x over it. I tried Google-ing a solution but none of the suggestions I found there were helpful. I'm posting 2 pictures up to, maybe, give you guys an idea of what the issue can be.

Additional information: the laptop at hand tries to install new drivers but fails everytime. No idea why. It tries to install a bluetooth driver.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?
2) Laptop drivers should always - and only - be obtained from the website of the laptop manufacturer. I suggest you go there and download the appropriate drivers and install them. You might want to start by downloading and reinstalling the chipset (or smbus) driver.

Well as for question 1, nothing is different much really. I didn't update anything but then again it is my sister's laptop, so I wouldn't know everything, I guess. What I can tell you is that this problem came up round about the same time that another problem ("this copy of windows is not genuine") popped up. Fixed the other one (forgot how but it was quite easy) and we're left with this one.

It attempts to install that driver all on its own; I tried to do an "Update Driver" but not much after that. So I have no idea where it's getting the driver from.

P.S Forgot to mention that it's a Vaio (if that's of any relevance).

What's the make and model of the problem PC?

If you know that, you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest audio drivers.

It's up to YOU to install the drivers. Again, go to the Sony website and download and install the appropriate drivers for your computer.
