    On the 23rd (three days ago) my sound was working fine, but saturday my sound stopped working and my speaker icon had a red dot with a white 'X' in it and says "No Audio Output Device Installed". I have gone into my device manager and the 'Audio, Video and Game Controllers' is missing. I have tried installing the toshiba audio drivers and it has not worked. Any help please?

    It is a little strange your Device Manager does not even show the entry for Sound, video and game controllers. That should be a basic entry. Have you tried using the View menu to show hidden devices. Maybe something is there.

    Could you audio on the motherboard (I assume) have died? Do you have anything plugged in the sound ports?

    Any bios options to enable or disable onboard sound?
