Question about HP (400745-001) Sound Card

1 Answer

Can't get sound from an external device

I have a brand new HP Pavilion Laptop that is running Windows Vista. I am attempting to use an external device to connect my camcorder to my laptop and burn a DVD. However, I cannot get any sound to be output onto my computer or onto the newly created DVD. I have tried two different types of devices to accomplish this task, but the result is the same: No sound output.

The troubleshooting guide for one of the devices (Kworld DVD Maker USB 2.0) told me to go to the control panel, select "sound" and under "playback" click on "speakers" and select "levels." From there I was told that I should see something called "line in" or "mic in." However, NONE of that exists. The only entry on that page is the level for "Speakers."

I looked at another laptop that is running Vista, and sure enough. on the other laptop, in that location, there are three additional entries to control levels. They are: PC Beep, Microphone and Line In. Is there something wrong with my sound card or its drivers? Am I supposed to see more entries than I am seeing?

    I to am experiencing the same problem. I recently moved and after computer was set up, no sound would come from any external audio device. Everything was triple checked but everything is plugged in correctly. The computer is a HP pavilion slimline with Vista.

I have responded to your earlier post. According to the specifications of your PC, it has realtec sound. Click here to download the Sound Drivers. Double Click the downloaded file ( sp26792.exe), which you may have downloaded already. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.
Let me know if any further clarification is required

Sound card dvr for presario v6500 with Windows XP


This is from HP's website:
If an HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario, delivered with Vista isdowngraded to the XP operating system, HP may not provide drivers.Users are encouraged to search the Microsoft web site for informationon downgrading to XP and locating updated drivers.

See Issues with Downgrading HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario PCs to Windows XP and Restoring Windows Vista for more detailed information.

The Service Manual may tell you the chipset of the sound card(but I didn't see it just part numbers). Also, you can run this utility here(look for audio in the output), in the event that you can't figure out the chipset otherwise.

According to this post, it appears that it may be part of windows update, you can try that.

My Hp pavilion tx2000 cant play audio files,cant connect to net


Hi James

First, Sound drivers:
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Notebook Realtek High-Definition Audio Driver 6.0.1.5494 A from HP notebook
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38206.exe

and video drivers..
HP Pavilion tx2000z CTO Notebook NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 Video Driver 7.15.11.5682 A
http://notebook.free-driver-download.com/url.php?id=TlRJeE5Eaz0&link=0

Now network:
HP Pavilion tx2000 CTO Notebook NVIDIA nForce Chipset/Network Driver 5.53 A
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38205.exe

and wireless!
This is an older WIFI driver that only works in XP, and in certain HP Pavilions, but try it.
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp36501-37000/sp36684.exe

and this is the Vista one that is correct for your laptop, it probably doesn't work in XP but if all else fails, you could try it. (You should really run Vista on it, I reckon)-----------------

Can't install m-audio firewire


It doesn't 64-bit windows. (no driver) this is part of why people who are serious about audio tend to use macs.

You can install 32-bit windows, then the included drivers will work.
