Windows 7: No audio recording device installed or found

02 Dec 2010   #1

Win 7 Uiltimate x64
No audio recording device installed or found


I am possessing Toshiba Satellite laptop / notebook and installed a retail version of Win 7 Ultimate x64 Edition. I am unable to use the microphone on my notebook. I am experiencing error message when trying to access the sound recorder tool: "no audio recording device can be found or no audio recording device is installed" and also does not work with voice chat or with skype calling too.

Audio Card integrated with the notebook is Conexant HD SmartAudio - ver:

I experienced the issue after few days after installing the OS. After installing the OS the microphone worked for few days and then later I experienced this issue. I had uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and though might be hardware issue, so I re-installed OS.

After re-installing the OS, again the microphone worked for few days and experiencing the same error.

I need assistance for resolving the issue.

Thanks in advance
