How to diagnose and fix sound problem for a desktop or a laptop


Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings

Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound.

Step 2
Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.

Step 3
Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary
Step 1
If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."

Step 2
Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."

Step 3
Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Hp pavilion dv9005us NO sound problem


you may want to check to see if the speaker wire is connected to the audio board. You'll need to remove the Keyboard, palm rest, etc. It should be located toward the front of the LT.
