No startup sound no sound at all, no audio

I don't know what I've done but I can't seem to find where to go to reinstall or activate my audio sound. Nothing in control panel that indicates a sound program.

You could try removing items from startup. Start > Run > type MSConfig > Startup. Uncheck items you don't want to load. This will make your PC faster. This can also be done with CC Cleaner if you haven't done so already.

The dvd plays but there is no audio, just crackling sound.

If the audio works good otherwise (you can play some Windows sounds or go on Youtube and play a clip), then you likely have a partially bad DVD drive. I've seen partially bad DVD drives that had done exactly that. Don't know what model HP you have, but HP usually puts out its service manuals on its website and getting a DVD dive replaced yourself shouldn't be overly difficult. Best place to buy a replacement drive would be on eBay, and anything other than a DVD-write should be pretty cheap ($10-$20); DVD-writers cost slightly more.

It sounds to me like the harddrive has errors on it. First, I would try completely reinstalling windows with the windows disk. If that does not solve the problem there are several pieces of software that are much stronger harddrive repair solutions than the built in Windows one. Try this one, it is free for 10 days. You will need another computer (friend's computer?) to download and burn this software onto a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot to it by pressing any key when it asks you to.

My sound hardware don't works even when I've installed the drivers... so, what can I do?

You can check or updates on the driver, also, check in the audio options,sometimes the audio device is disabled from there even after installing the driver. How to do so depends on your Operative System,but if you have the speaker icon on your tray you can right-click it and select the "playback devices" or "recording devices" depending on which is not working. Click on the device that seems to be disabled and click the "Properties" button. Somewhere in that window (usually in the lower area) there will be a drop-down menu that has the options of "use this device (enable)" or "Don't use this device (disabled)" pick the first to enable the device that is not working.

I've forgotten my password and i don't know how can i recover its! please can you help me, my father will mesage me in 3 days please please please...........

What you'll need is a program called Ophcrack. Here's a link:

It cracks Windows passwords quickly using a method called rainbow tables. What you need to do is put the file you download onto a CD, DVD, or USB drive. Once you've done that, you need to restart your computer. When it boots up, press the F key (F3, F5, something like that) or whatever it says to enter setup. Navigate though your BIOS to the startup sequence. Change the startup sequence so that whatever kind of drive the Ophcrack ISO is on will boot before the operating system. Restart your computer again. Ophcrack should get the passwords. Write them down and try them until you find the right one.

Hope that helped!

If you need a more in depth guide, I googled for you and found this:

Everytime I try to logg in it says that the loggin system is not available at the moment, then a blue screen appears and it shuts at the moment I can only loggin in safe mode. I really need to use...

I've had this problem and It's frustrating but usually not too bad as long as you have your installation and or driver disks. If it's from before Windows 7 you should have one somewhere around but If it is Windows 7 you kinda had to make it yourself and I believe your only allowed to make one. Now if you don't, don't freak, you could get one from the company associated with your laptop,or windows directly (they should be free but you may have to pay shipping and handling), worst case get one from some tech store. They will charge you and arm, then bring it back saying it wasn't what you thought it was, your not reinstalling your OS (that would wipe your old stuff) your just doing a recovery.
Try reinstalling Drivers first.
First try using the Driver disk in safe mode or another regular start up way and fixing your drivers from in safe mode or regular start up or if that doesn't work try the following but with the Driver installation disk.
Step 1 of Startup Repair or a Systems Recovery.
Then on next boot put in the disk and press F12 (should be somewhere above the keyboard minus sign) on boot up as soon as you can.
Step 2 Now boot from disk instead of the "C:" drive and follow the instruction.
Step 3.1 Once pass the prompt asking you to install Windows Do not reinstall the OS
You should see this after... 66b9e3c2-bb67-47bf-802c-b753b54bcc19.jpg

Click Startup Repair first (don't worry if it take a hour (probably won't but you never know))
It should restart and work

Step 3.2 If not do Steps 1 and 2 again but in step three click Systems Recovery.
Now if that does not work contact me again (or if you don't mind and need it now you can reinstall and wipe everything A CHOICE I NEVER CONDONE)
