That was my first approach Topher, but it didn't do the trick.
After that I dove into the realms of the internets and tried a multitude of drivers (Realtek's first), all to no avail.
Someone else suggested it might be the Services/Dependencies not being started, but everything looks good...
Aah, now it makes sense. I was looking at the wrong line (Friday, December 4, 2009 :redface:) and was under the impression the article was fairly recent.
It's a shame, but the writing was on the wall even back then.
Maybe a relocation is in order...
I see I'm not alone.
you mean the audio drivers and the AC'97 "device" in Device Manager?
Right now I'm trying to hunt down the audio driver thats ON the WIN 7 DVD through "exploring" it. No luck so far. Any idea what to look for, name of it, file extension etc.?
Look, this guy is Canadian, too, he can teach you. :biggrin:

No upgrade, full install of WIN 7 Ultimate.
Problem is just like the title says.
Icon in taskbar says: "No Audio Output Device is installed"...
Happens all the time. Best Buy, CompUSA aren't any better than Fry's either. People seem to be learning only the hard way.
I bet you anything, had you built it yourself you'd have had a superior PC for half the price.
