I am noticing the same problem on a couple of Mini-10v that I have. 10.6.7 is great but sounds behaves exactly as Andromaque describes. It's all good when it works, but a high percentage of times (30-40%) when you boot up the sound is not present (speaker icon grey'd out).
I wonder if the fix that is out there for the Mini 9 (Akki's sound fix) would work on the 10v as well and fix this issue once and for all.
Here is the link to the fix I am referring to:
Bundle for fixing Mini 9 Sound & Mic
Has anyone tried?

I haven't tried that. However, on my 10v this issue sometimes happens (been happening since before 10.6.7 I think) and it seems to be cured by rebooting and going into the BIOS setup. Not necessarily changing anything, but just going in and then exiting.

"No output devices found" - 07-03-2011, 02:25 PM
Just installed OS 10.6.3 along with Netbookinstaller 0.8.4RCI.app.zip. Most things are working well except that I have no audio. I went to system preferences to the speakers and it does not find an output device. Should I run netbookinstaller 20100616212351? I started to run it but then chickened out. . ..Thanks!

You need to run either NBI special or 0.8.4 again after you finish your install in order to install the sound, video and wireless kexts as well as having your track pad work.
Look at your Finder bar at the top of your screen, if it isn't translucent Quartz Extreme isn't working.

I'm having the same problem too, unfortunately, and it seems really inconsistent. Sometimes it'll be fine for a few days and sometimes it'll take a few reboots to come back. Not sure why but I guess I'll live with it in lieu of shelling out for a 'real' mac :P.
