My sound is no longer working on my laptop.... when i go into control panel, sound speech and audio, it claims i have no audio device....
Also, check device manager and there are no yellow exclamation marks.
Tried installing the Soundmax driver package from Lenovo and it states:
Installation failed. The audio driver files do not support your computer hardware.

Hi i have the same problem for some time. It is an old laptop but it's working except sound.
So I'm wondering what is wrong. Everything is working but i cant hear no sound. I pluged in headphones but still no sound. So here is a screen shoot of my sound settings while music is playing.
Everithing looks fine and i can't figure it out.

Welcome to the forum, shonjator!
Try booting a "live" Linux CD. Are you getting sound there?

sorry for waitnig for me to reply.
Here is the thing, i switched from windows to linux completly now. ( using linux mint 15 )
I still can't hear the sound.
But before one mounth (while i was still on windows 7) sound came back and i didn't do anything. after i turn off computer and turn it on again sound was gone again.
It may be the sound card (which is i assume integrated), because i tried with headphones (which work on my desktop computer) and no sound from them also.
Maybe some additional software is requaried for linux ( I'm new user so i dont know ).

If you're missing sound in both Windows and Linux, chances are that the audio chip has gone south.
You can always buy a PCMCIA sound card and get your audio features back.
