No Audio, "No Output Device Found" - GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 - Help!

2 posts in this topic

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!

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.

    • Hello MaLd0n,   Could you please make DSDT edits for my new Skylake desktop Lenovo M910t    RunMe files: https://www96.zippyshare.com/v/5bgqAiga/file.html
        Thank you very much in advance!
    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
