Windows 7: "No audio output is installed" error

"No audio output is installed" error

Recently, I bought a new computer and installed it. Everything is fine but I have a problem, the sound. In the bottom right corner the sound symbol appears with a red "X" and when I roll over it I get the error you can see in the title. Tried what other guys said in other threads and in other forums and sites. But nothing worked. In Device Manager I don't see the Realtek driver, even thought it's installed already. It says that Ethernet and MS Bus controller are missing, and when I try to download them it says that they are already installed (they appear at the "Other devices" section, but they have an exclamation mark near them).

The "High Definition Audio Device" usually indicates a generic sound driver installed by Windows.
I see you have other devices with problems too (e.g. Ethernet Controller). In many installations, there are motherboard chipset drivers and if your motherboard has separate chipset drivers, they must be installed before installing device drivers. One of the prime things the chipset drivers do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard.

Usually the Win 7 install will install most of the drivers, but in this case it appears that not all the drivers were installed and thus some devices will not install or incorrect drivers are installed.

Yeah, I seen that Windows 7 doesn't recognize my motherboard. It's an ASRock H61M-VS. Searched it on Google, download what I needed to download and now it says that everything is fine, but can't hear anything.

Never mind, IT'S SOLVED.
