    ^^^^^^

    That means get anything you want off the drive by copying to another location, then throw the drive in the trash. Alternatively, you can keep using it and lose important data when it fails completely.

    Ohh so the hard drive was the problem all along? Any idea how long this one will last?

    HDD failing has nothing to do with optical drive.

    It could last until a minute from now or a long time. Either way, there is huge risk of failing at any moment from this point on.

    You can also try to open an elevated (Admin) command prompt. Copy/paste this command then press enter:

    net start audiosrv

    If that doesn't work, try this from the following link -

    1. Open cmd.exe with Administrator rights
    2. Type in:
    "secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose"
    3. Restart your computer when the process completes

    I'm guessing your upgrade installed Windows 8?

    Easy fix


    I don't know if this problem has been solved already in the previous posts, but just in case here is what I did:

    I right clicked the bottom of the screen, clicked device manager, clicked 'sound, audio and game controllers', right clicked 'cirrus logic high definition audio' and updated the audio driver software. I then restarted the computer as prompted and the annoying red cross was gone and the audio is now working fine.

    Hope that helps
