Re: No sound on computer
Check to see if the software drivers are loaded for the sound card. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to the sound card. Double click on the sound card and a window will pop open telling you about the error. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Managment" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.

You will have to do a complete factory reinstall at this point. Hopefully you have your data saved so it won't be lost. The disk you have should work, but you'll have to boot from the CD drive. Insert the manufacturer's disk in your CD drive and then restart the computer. Hopefully it will automatically start the reinstallation. If it does, just follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system. If not, let me know and I'll talk you through how to tell your computer to boot from the CD drive first.
Sounds like you may have uninstalled your audio drivers somehow. You can reinstall them by visiting your computers manufacturers page and looking up the make and model under the support section. Good luck!
AHHHHH WINDOWS WELL WHATS NEW!!!!! SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO REINSTALL YOUR VIDEO DRIVERS IF THAT DON'T WORK TRY REINSTALLING WINDOWS BUT FIRST GO TO SAFE MODE AN SAVE YOUR STUFF DOC,MUSIC,BOOKMARKS,ALL THAT STUFF,IF THAT DON'T WORK CHECK YOUR BIOS SETTINGS GOOD LUCK
Sounds like a Video card problem. Try a different Monitor that you know works with it. If you have the same problem try removing the video card from the PC and then put it back in. Make sure it fully seats into its slot, if the slot has a flipcatch at the back of it make sure that swings up and locks into the notch on the video card. If there is a power connector on the video card make sure that it is plugged in.
If you try these and you still have a problem, please post a comment here, so I can further help you
If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.
Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.
Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.
