Sounds to me like you are missing the drivers for the soundcard...the drivers are basiclly the software thatallows your computer to communicate with the hardware (in this case the soundcard).

What you can do is download the drivers and install them , which should get you your sound back!

You can download them here:

You need to make the mic you want to chat with 'Default'

Open 'Sounds and Audio Devices' folder and click on the Audio tab - make your webcam mic the default device in the 'Sound recording window'
Open 'Volume' below the window to ensure the mic is not muted
Click 'Apply' and 'OK'
Restart your computer
Configure the webcam to your chat program

Plug in the webcam
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'
To set required (webcam) mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1232nr, the mute button and the wireless button on the top touch pad has quit working along with the volume slider. Any suggestions?

My mute button on my hp pavilion dv7-1262us stopped working after I updated my IDT High-Definition Audio CODEC through Microsoft update. The volume worked but the button stayed orange. I went to Device Manager- Sound,video and game controllers then IDT Audio CODEC. Click the Driver tab then click the Roll Back Driver button. This rolled the driver back to an older version but it fixed the problem. This is a Vista machine. Hope this helps.

Remove the sound card driver from your computer and then install it back after the computer restart. Check your volume settings and the volume slider on your laptop.

Hp dv71245dx cannot remove from muted state.

Go to Control panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume. Check that Device Volume is at least halfway across the slider and that Mute is unchecked. Go to Advanced and make sure that nothing is mute. Go to Speaker Volume and set the sliders at least halfway across the slider. Go to Advanced, and in Speakers setup choose Laptop Stereo Speakers (if that's what you have). Go to Performance and choose Restore Defaults. Click Apply > OK

plz do inform if this has sorted out the problem
all the best

I was unable to locate appropriate drivers for either of the sound systems on that model from the HP website, but you should be able to get them through the Windows Update site. Just make sure you choose the Custom button (Express only looks for critical updates) and check the drivers section to see what is available for you. I know for sure the RealTek drivers are there and I would assume that the Conexant drivers are as well, so you should be covered no matter which specific hardware configuration you have.

Upgrade all the way baby! the max RAM you can have is 4gb in that thing, which is pretty good.

there ya go around $40....which is not bad at all. i paid 65 for my 4gb for my dell inspiron 1525, and newegg is the best for this stuff by far. The other specs on this thing look pretty good though. the only other thing you might want to do is get a 64 bit operating system, if you have the cash to get a new one, because that allows you to put that 4gb and the dual processor to better use than a 32bit one can.

When you insert the headphone jack into the green socket it separates a silver tab and cuts power to the speakers. These things never break. The only other options to why headphones have no single is they are either muted, or the sound is pegged down.

To check the sound levels on any computer, click or double click the speaker icon in your system tray near the digital clock display. If you don't have one, let me know. This action brings up the sound levels for all sound enabled devices on your system.

First, check that Master is not muted by a check box selected or the volume slider all the way down. Next look at the Wave slider for the same thing. If you are playing back a CD, look at the CD slider and then the volume control in your CD App for a mute box check or volume slider there pegged down. That should cover the sliders. For the mic you will notice a slider for it and that its muted by default, there's a reason but its related to feedback loops in sound, that's all.

Next, open Control Panel, click or double click on Sound and this opens several property sheets, the first one shows the built in devices for your laptop, each of the three should be filled. There at times a page for setting mic response to your voice. If you see a setup for your mic recording go ahead and run through that just to set the microphone sensitivity.

If it still does not work for you, I'm not sure what to say. I'll give it some thought so don't rate this until you hear from me again.

Hp pavillion microphone no working

if it's a built in, you need to right click on the speaker icon on the right of your taskbar, click open volume control and then a window will pop up with volume sliders, check that the mic is listed there if not click options, advanced controls and make sure it is not muted and the slider is all the way up. If you click advanced under the mic slider the option to tick mic boost appears.
