    I got the following error msg when trying to install the driver:



    Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver.



    I have checked all the sound devices and, according to the device manager, they are all enables and functioning.



    Any ideas on how I can get the sound problem fixed?

I don't have sound on my computer yet i have installed sound drivers and they are working well?


check in your control panel and go to systems.
Then go to hardware and under that go to Device Manager
In there see if there are any exclamation marks in your sound hardware,
conflicts and such.
If there are none then go to Sound Controls in Audio Devices and make sure the audio isn't muted in the windows program
Use this to do an audio test of your speakers.
If that isn't working but it should be check your wires to see if there is a break or if it is plugged into the the green colored jack for external speakers.

Sound drivre are note work in pc


Go to the device manager and check that the device is enabled: start>control panel>hardware and sound>device manager. Look for video and sound controllers and expand the menu. Find the sound adapter, right click and click properties. The general tab will tell you if the device is working properly. You can got to the driver tab and choose update driver and then search automatically for updated software.
Seems obvious, but check that the sound isn't muted, as well.

Hdmi from laptop to tv small picture no sound


First the picture size is probably related to the screen resolution or aspect ratio. In Windows 7, you can adjust the resolution by right clicking on the desktop and choosing Screen Resolution. Make sure you do not exceed the limits of the video graphics output of the laptop or the refresh and resolution of the TV. (Without knowing your hardware, I can't tell you the actual settings you should use.) Usually HD TVs are either 720p or 1080i. Alternatively, check if you can change the zoom or aspect ratio (4:3, 16:9) on the TV. Those settings may fill your screen. (It could expand the image past the viewable edges of the TV or distort your image though.)

For the audio, you should check the Sound outputs. Again in Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Devices. Under Playback, see if you have an option for HDMI sound. If you don't have this option, you will need to connect an audio cable between your computer and TV. (If the TV has a VGA input with a PC audio jack, use a 3.5 mm audio patch cable. Otherwise, you'll need a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter or cable.) Make sure that the audio isn't muted.

If you have a different OS, the specific commands will be slightly different but similar in Windows.

I hope this helps.

The external display stays muted and plays no sound but when I use the headphone port the sounds work. I cant get the laptop speakers to produce any sound though.


Go to control panel and go to sound and hardware (Just go to anything that says sound)!

Then go to sound and audio devices!

Go to Audio and change the default until sound comes out of tv!

My laptop won't play sound. how do i fix this?


Thank you for using Fixya Forums.

I just want to verify the sound 'Mute' button is locked, is that a button on your laptop or are you referring to the sound icon in the system tray? Are you showing a 'Red X' on the sound icon in the system tray? I have attached some information on updating drivers and some other troubleshooting tips. Please let me know if you are still having any problems or if issue has been corrected.
Update a driver for hardware that isn’t working properly


You can use Device Manager and/or Windows Update to locate the necessary driver for your system. If you know the manufacture of the hardware in question you can visit their respective website and obtain the driver from there.

Also, feel free to visit this help article found on the Windows Help and How-to website about Tips for fixing common hardware problems.

How to update drivers using Windows Update



1. Click Start, click All programs, then click Windows Update.
2. If prompted press Continue or provide administrator credentials.
3. In the left pane, click Check for updates.
4. To see if updated drivers are available, click View available updates.
5. Windows Update will list any updated drivers that are available under Optional downloads.
6. If any updates are available, click the driver that you want to install, and the click Install.

There is no sound coming out from my laptop though the sound device was installed


Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and chck if the sound driver is OK, if you have a yellow ? against the audio driver, it mean the driver is not installed or the wrong one was installed.
If the sound driver is OK the check the MUTE switch in the audio settings, untick it if the mute has been selected.

Laptop LED Locked Mute


go to compaq.com and reinstall the hot-key software for your laptop. seems to be a bad driver, could also be bad hardware though, if it is bad hardware you may be looking for someone to take it apart to fix it. more than likely though it is a driver which can be fixed with just installing new software.

I had this problem too. My built in mic wasnt working, but i went to the list of programs (Classic view of the start menu) and under the program folder TOSHIBA > Speech System it'll have a choice "Configure Microphone." After I went through that, it worked fine. Make sure you restart your webcam software though after you've done that if you had it open like me. Hope this works!
