windows, 7, 2010 PC it is. (first)
no, songs names, length , type, ex cetera have nothing to do with this.
the answer is many , ill try to show you why.
seen every way, I have, for sure.
(the cause is a slow pc, but has more base reasons, bad)
1: speakers where, inside or outside this Notebook, ?
1a: guess inside, so do earbuds work plugged in to the jack? 3.5mm hear phone jack? yes. no
If yes, speakers actual may be bad.
if not , the the sound chip is faulting, easy no? use the jack there and test it.
what cause the chip to fail (even new chips, most never do fail)
but are caused
Top causes :
1: VIRUS INFECTED. Running AV software , is W7 have all updates?
2:malfware infected. run malwarebytes, free.
3: to many things in the startup box in windows 7.
click start, then run box type MSCONFIG , click it there.
see that startup folder, shut the ones down that are not AV related.
mine has 2, allowed here, windows defender and malwarebytes.
others will slow the system even HP stuff here can.
and for sure lots more. seen some with 25 useless things there.
4: worn driver for w7 used, only the HP drivers work seen here.
5: using new USB head phones, that will conflict with the HP chips
HP nor MS support USB headphones, so unplug all USB devices
does the stock speakers work now, BINGO.\
it can be made to work if you disable the sound chip not being used. and I dont teach that. here. Yes USB has a sound chip in the head phone muffs.
run CCleaner, google it.
you can also go to the link about and run all w7 HP drivers
or do a HP full system restore to make it like new.
you have many choices,. and more. ask
