No Sound in Sony Vaio Notebook Sigmatel Audio
Posted on 2008-06-16
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ79GN. I installed Winxp with SP 2 (disc came with notebook) with the drivers listed on Sony Asia's website. I have installed all updates from Windows Update, except SP 3
My notebook is unable to play any sound once windows is loaded. The startup windows sound plays when I start and log into the computer but no sound is able to be played. I tried playing the Windows sounds via Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices Properties- Sounds but get the following error message:
Error: Windows cannot play the %SystemRoot%\media\Windows XP Error.wav file. It may be damaged or may not be a valid sound file. Replace the file and try again.
How can I solve this problem? It's audio appears to be a Sigmatel Audio.
I have also reinstalled the sound driver, but that does not solve the problem. The notebook is capable of playing sounds since the computer is able to play the boot up windows music.
