'No Output Devices Found' MacBook Air


A few weeks ago my MacBook Air suddenly would not play any audio. It would happne off and on. Usually the sound would come back after restarting. Now, though, I can't seem to get my audio to come back at all, no matter what I do. Here are a few screenshots to give you an idea of what's going on: I've restarted. I cleared permissions with Onyx. I verified and repaired disk permissions with Disk Utitlity. Still no audio.

MacBook Air :: No Output Devices Found - How To Detect
The other day, when I opened my MBA from sleep mode, a gray screen popped up saying that I had to restart my computer by pressing on the power button. Well, since then, I have had absolutely no sound on my computer.

When I try to use the keyboard to raise/lower the volume, a little screen pops up with a circle with a line through it. In the menu bar at the top of my screen, where my volume status should be, there is only a blank space. Additionally, in System Preferences, there are "no output devices found."

MacBook Air :: No Output Devices Found - How To Connect
This just happened to me the other day, I plugged a pair of apple headphones in used them and then unplugged them. The next day I noticed that I was not getting any sound from my macbook air, no startup sound, no OS sounds, and even the headphones are not detected when plugged in. I've tried all the tricks and so far nothing.

Of course my mac is just out of warranty at the end of March and I'm going to imagine this is a small fortune to get fixed. Since last time I took it in while it was in warranty they wanted 900 bucks to replace my HDD

Anyone else run across this, I'm thinking of just throwing it on craiglist or ebay for like 900 bucks as is and buying a normal laptop

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Audio Output / No Output Devices Found
We received a few new MBP 13 / 15" at work a week ago and three of them have non-working audio. The weird thing is that the boot up chime works but in System Prefs, it says "no audio device" on my MBP 13"...?

I took it to a "genius" bar today and they had no clue. Tried booting off an external drive - same problem. I don't want to send it in for repair - its BRAND NEW! - and I'm off on a 3-week trip next week. I'm hoping its some sort of wacky driver problem (remember: the chime on boot works).

OS X :: MacBook Sound Not Working - No Output Devices Found
My sound has completely quit working. In the sound system prefs I get a massage saying "No output devices found". If I press the volums button keys the onscreen display comes up but has a 'no access' icon on it (a circle with a line through it). The icon in the toolbar has also vanished and there's just a blank space in its place.

Oddly whatever happened also seems to have effected my ability to view Flash movies -*the will play for a few seconds an then pause *they don't stutter they just pause. I think that whatever the issue is it was caused by a force shut down. All my applications were hanging so I had to press down the power button for a few seconds. Since then nothing!

This also effects the start-up sound which I don't get and all users of the machine are the same so it's not a case of deleting users prefs. So far I reinstalled the latest system using combo updater, run disk utility to repair disk/privileges (from start up disk) and zapped the PRAM.

OS X :: No Sound / No Output Devices Found On MacBook Pro
Hey, my macbook was getting rather slow so I decided to do a clean install of Leopard, but now I have absolutely no sound whatsoever apart from the startup chime! The volume keys now don't control volume and instead do expose and dashboard.

I did however install it with a Leopard disk that was from a shop and not one of the grey ones that came with the computer, is that the problem? If so how can I fix it?

MacBook Pro :: No Sound - No Output Or Input Devices Found
I just inherited a MacBook Pro. It's a 2.53 GHz Intel Core Duo with 4 GB Ram. Unfortunately, the install DVDs were left back home. I needed to do a fresh install and I used a 10.5.6 DVD that I own to install the system. I now get no sound at all. When I go to the System Prefs/Sound folder, I don't have anything available. It just says that there are "No input or output devices available. I know that this worked - not sure how to even approach this. It is a brand new system so repairing the disc permissions wouldn't seem to make any sense. I plugged in a headphone just on the chance that a wire was loose - no change. I am downloading the latest software from Apple - not sure if that will do anything. I don't have anything other than the system installed.

OS X :: New 13" Macbook Pro - No Output Devices & Sound Options Found?
I had a first gen aluminum 13" Macbook that I spilled beer on. It was basically a write-off, but fortunately the HD was not damaged.I just got my 13" Macbook Pro today, and replaced the new HD with my old one. Everything is working fine, except that there is no sound.When I go to System->Sound I see "No Output devices found", and when I press the sound buttons on the keyboard, the speaker is grayed out.I know this is not a Hardware issue for a couple reasons. First, it properly 'chimes' on startup. Second, I did try running the computer with the new hard drive, and during the sound was working properly, volume adjustment buttons working, etc.

Mac Pro :: No Audio Output Devices Found
Just this evening my sound device stopped working. During booting no welcome chime anymore and no sound device detected.

What I tried thus far:

1) Booting in safe mode
2) Hardware test
3) Booting from OSX 10.6.4 (external disk) in stead of current 10.6.5
4) Booting in Windows 7 using bootcamp

I recently upgraded from OS X 10.5 to 10.5.8 several days ago and everything seemed fine. Yesterday I plugged my headphones into the jack to listen to a video and that worked fine, too. Today, I have no sound. I looked at System Preferences -> Sound, and it says that no output devices are found. It appears that my computer thinks it doesn't have any speakers!

Intel Mac :: No Input Or Output Sound Devices Found
Just today I have installed an application which was to do with sound switching , called "soundflower" once iv installed and run it there was an option "create multiple sound switch" did chose and start to creating a multiple, as soon as it started my sound card panel display as "no sound card founded" and my sound icon on the top bar turned to light gray.

Double click on that and when it opens you will see your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) on the left. Highlight your hard drive and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK click on Repair Permissions on the left. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Permissions if it is not successful let me know. But problem still remains.

MacBook Air :: Can't Get Audio HDMI Output To Work On ViewSonic VX2453 Monitor
I have a 13" mid 2011 MacBook Air and a new ViewSonic VX2453 monitor. I used the Monoprice mini display port to HDMI converter with audio and connected the monitor to my computer's thunderbolt port. The video works perfectly, but the sound isn't working at all. I set my computer's sound output in settings to VX2453 series (type: HDMI), and I set my monitor's audio input to HDMI. Nothing. I also tried changing the frequency in Audio MIDI Setup, which someone recommended on amazon  for the monoprice adapter, but that didn't work either. 

I tested the monitor's sound by switching audio input instead to "audio in" and connected to my headphone jack, and that worked so the monitor's sound is fine.

MacBook :: Device Has No Output Devices
So I started up my macbook this morning and have been using it for awhile when I went to go play some music and can't get any sound. When I hit the volume buttons it shows a shadow of the speaker logo and a circle with a line through it under the volume bar. I have tried a restart and also went into sound controls, where it says "The device has no output devices" . What can I do/what's going on?

MacBook :: Strange Residue Found In An Otherwise Clean 'BlackBook'?
A black MacBook that I recently worked on had the most bizarre thing about it.

One of the memory SIMM's had soem residue on the underside of it. It didn't look like water and the system ran fine with it. I used some contact cleaner to get most of it off. I thought that the system perhaps had something spilled on it but the most puzzling thing is that there was zero residue anywhere else in the system. None. Not under the keyboard, not on the top of the board directly under the memory, nothing... Most peculiar sight.

Could it have come from the factory like that? It seems hard to believe. From what I could tell, the system hadn't been messed with at all, from what I could see.

The issue that brought it to me was the Airport Card was just dropping the network. It's on another part of the board...

Anyone else seen anything like this? It's got me stumped..

MacBook :: 'Built In Speakers' Are No Longer An Option For Audio Output
The speakers on my Macbook have suddenly stopped working. If you plug headphones in, fine. In the system preferences, 'built in speakers' are no longer an option for audio output. Just 'digital out'. When I try and change the volume of the speakers, the symbol is greyed out, and there's a little "you can't do this" symbol.

MacBook Pro :: Build-in Audio Devices Not Found?
I just got a brand new Macbook pro. There are no audio devices available in the sound preferences.

In the Audio MIDI Setup utility the input is set to "none" and the default output and system output both show "Unknown device". On the bottom half of the window is says "Input is not supported" / "Output is not supported"

I hear the sound at startup from the build in speakers, but that's all.

In the system profiler I see the build in audio device, and it looks ok.

Intel Mac :: Image Capture Does Not Have A 'Devices' Option
I have a new scanner and I installed the drivers. It's showing fine in Photoshop CS3 but the window for it is awkward and small and barely has any features to it (there is no selection to for Advanced either). I figured I should try to use Image Capture instead, hoping to have better luck and more features. However Image Capture is not allowing me to go to 'Devices > Browse Devices' because there is no 'Devices' menu listed at all. I've restarted, unplugged things, plugged devices back in. It just says 'No Camera or Scanner Selected'. the Command B is not even working either.

could use both outputs at the same time? Internal speakers and the wireless USB ones?
