No Audio Outputdevice is installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a dell insperion 6000, running Vista, my hard drive crashed and i got a new larger hard drive to replace it and upgraded from XP to Vista, and have tried to automatic download and manually download the driver for this sound card, with no luck.  Also, when i go into my device manager there is no "sound, video or game controler" option. With the device manager open all i see related to sound is a question mark next to "other Devices" and when i expand this tab it says "Multimedia audio controler". when double clicked  i recieve this message
             Device Type:        Other Devices
             Manufacturer:       Unknown
             Location:              PCI bus 0, device 30, function 2
             This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

             There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.

             To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.   

    When i try to reinstall it like i said before it doesnt work, i try to run the setup file, then it doesnt work still, i know that im using a  SigmaTel STAC 975X AC97 sound card if that helps
