I'm getting pissed too, but that has a different meaning for me....
Listen man, "No audio device detected!" means that Win' can't find an audio device which it can use.
Have you checked the Device Manager for little !warnings?

I downloaded a Realtek AC'97 Audio Driver but it said it was an invalid application. I followed the instructions. I should just buy a sound card.

For what it's worth: This would be a heck of a lot easier to diagnose and solve if we actually had our hands on the system. I strongly recommend finding someone local to you who can work through the problem with you, showing you how they're doing it as they go.

Personal reaction: The error message you cite sounds as if you have installed audio drivers for a device which is either missing or malfunctioning. I'd want to play with it a bit more to be sure, but I repeat my suggestion that you try dodging the whole bullet by plugging in, and installing drivers for, a new set of sound hardware.

I downloaded my system's original drivers but it was an "invalid application" :P I'm just gonna get a new sound card.

. First thing I would try is re-installing the driver(s) for the sound card. You should be able to download the latest version from the manufacturer's web site.
.  If that doesn't work, try unplugging the sound card from the mobo and then plugging it back in. This will often clean any dirt or corrosion that may be causing a problem.
.  Check the headphone jack. Most have a built-in switch that turns off the speakers when headphones are plugged in.

1) Are you sure the sound hardware is good? It may be defunct.

2) Is the sound card configured to output to the internal speakers or external? If external, are you sure THEY are good and wired/plugged in properly?

"No audio device detected" means the drivers can't find working sound hardware which matches them. If you're still getting that message, I'd try finding another sound device. There are some high-quality USB sound interfaces available at fairly low prices; I use one to interface to my stereo system and another one (on another machine) for dubbing/editing old tapes and recent field-recordings. (Haven't switched to all-digital for the latter yet.)

But there is no options about any of that in sound devices. :(

It may well be that you have selected the wrong output device for your system - Do you have an internal sound card AND an separate sound card?? Go into the control Pnl and make sure you select the appropriate output.

i can use my sound blaster card OR the internal output.

I am using the internal output with legacy audio drivers, sound card is clean and installed, but STILL no sound!
