Windows 7: No audio output device installed

08 Aug 2011   #1

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit SP1
No audio output device installed

I bought a generic computer. It had windows vista installed and it used to display a message that No audio output device is installed . I recently installed windows 7 home premium 32 bit on it but it still says the same thing. I went to properties of it and found following error message.This device cannot start. (Code 10).
System specifications are

I downloaded and installed the intel chipset driver and then the RealTek driver from manufacturer website but that didnt solve the problem.

If I buy a sound card from a computer store, perhaps I will also get CD for driver installation with it. If I put sound card in my system and install driver, will the sound function start working. thanks for the help
