No Output Device Found - Snow Leopard - GA-Z68A-D3H-B3

Recommended Posts

Hi, I will appreciate help on this issue.

I built a system based on a GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 (rev 11) MB and an Intel i7 2700K Processor with 8 GB RAM

Installed Snow Leopard following instructions I'd found on tonymacx86 blog, and ran MuliBeast.

I can´t get the sound to work, the system profiler shows the audio card, but system preferences "No Output Device Found".


This is what System Profiler output:

Intel High Definition Audio:


Audio ID: 892

S/PDIF Optical Digital Audio Output:

Connection: Internal

Line Output:

Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack

External Microphone / iPhone Headset:

Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack

External Microphone / iPhone Headset:

Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack


Connection: 1/8-Inch Jack

S/PDIF Optical Digital Audio Output:

Connection: Optical





I connected a Sony stereo system in the rear output jack and restarted several times with same results.

After reading other posts I downloaded IOreg and ran it, a zipped report is attached

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

I posted this also in post-installation/snow leopard.


Well, after some research I solved the issue.

I found a post in an external forum where a moderator asked to the guy having a similar issue, if he had deleted all the HDA items in System/Library/Extensions (after doing some installations)

I went to S/L/E and (first) found 2 DSDT files, (I installed both) so I deleted the wrong one, and trashed all the HDA folders, then restarted, and voilá, the sound is working perfectly.

I hope this can help anyone with a similar issue.

      Ciao ragazzuoli,
      avrei un'altro probelema con la mia installazione.
      Come da titolo non riesco a far andare l'audio al mio hackitosh.. è solamente un problema di software perchè se avvio win 8 funzia tutto alla perfezione..
      Soluzioni? ho installato il kext raltek ALC892 ma non funzia, vado in impostazione e alla voce VoodoooHDA la apro e mi dice " can't get registy-entry path"
      PS la mia è una sabertooth x79
      Grazie in anticipo
