    Audio Device is Disabled After Re-install Driver


    So a few days ago i just restore my notebook because my lan network cannot connect to my friend notebook when i want to play game, after that now my sound is disabled and it said "No Audio Output Device is Installed", i've tried many methods to solve this problem start from uninstall all the driver and install them back, do few things like this thread said, update driver and other thing that i cannot remember anymore

    this is how my audio condition looks like:

    It looks like more than the sound has a problem. Not sure what the "USB2.0 CRW" is but that has a problem.

    All the entries for the "High Definiton Audio Device" should be uninstalled. It looks like you may have RealTek audio.

    Suggest you install any ASUS listed Motherboard Chipset Drivers first. They may even take care of the USB2.0 CRW problem.
    Then Install the ASUS listed sound driver. Check the ASUS downloads while you are there for anything needed.

    i've tried to uninstall all the audio driver before but the problem is those High Definition Audio Device are always come back again (i don't know why)

    and i also have installed the Chipset driver as you suggest but it seems it's not give any effect to my laptop, what it is driver function by the way?

    bs: USB2.0 CRW has already solved, it just not updated

    The High Definition Audio Device entries seem to be the key. One, however, could be HDMI audio (if you have that) and that would mean the proper video driver was not installed.

    Drivers are software that tells Windows how a particular device works. Vendor specific drivers (in this case the PC Vendor) usually work best or should be used to start with. Windows installs some generic (basic function) drivers during the install but they should be replaced with Vendor drivers.

    Depending on how you did the reinstall, unfortunately it may take a "clean" install (reformat the hard drive and then reinstall) to get it completely functional.
