    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?

How to remove beep sound after the system sound?


the beeps ate called post

Then what happens does it restart ? or just wont boot up ?

A bit more information please.


Not sure what you mean by 'when the hard drive beeps
does the hard drive start when you turn the laptop on

(at which point a do the beeps occur a single beep isn't unusual) and it stops when you turn the hard drive off - a beep then would be unusual.


I suspect you don't mean that, & if the laptop is working fine otherwise then I wouldn't worry about it or do you mean something else completely?

make sure the ram modules have secure seatings also check all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive the same will apply for your graphics card


hope this helps

Sound


Have you ever had sound? If so, when did it stop working? If it stopped around the time that you changed something in your system, like installing new software or hardware, then that's likely the cause.

Did you go to start>programs>control panel. Double-click on "Sound" and verify that nothing is muted and the volume sliders are all turned up?

If you know the last time the sound worked, do a system restore previous to that point. Keep in mind, a system restore will remove any software installations you've done, but it will not delete any files or email. Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Go through the prompts and select a date previous to the time your sound stopped working.

Troubleshooting Laptop Sound Problems - No Audio Output


Symptom:

Can't hear any sound out of my laptop.


Diagnosis & Solution:

If you can't get any sound out of your laptop, the most likely cause is the volume being turned down or muted. Newer laptops monitor the external sound control so when the volume is turned up or down manually, the volume control in the operating system tracks right along with it. But with some laptops, especially those with external dial volume controls rather than toggles, the volume dials are independent of the software volume control and can't be monitored in software. In this case, if the volume dial is turned down on the outside of the laptop, the sound is turned off and nothing can be done in the operating system to change that. The only way to get the sound back is to turn up the external volume dial control.

If you have checked the external volume control on the laptop and the standard laptop volume slider in the operating system (the little speaker icon in Windows system tray) & you still can't get any sound out of the laptop, then the next step would be to check for any other software volume controls. Depending on the software installed and what you are trying to do, there may still be multiple volume controls and mixer panels scattered about the operating system. If the wrong channel is muted or turned down all the way in one of these independent controls, the laptop will not produce sound.

Most of the time, the first sign most laptop users get that their audio isn't working is the absence of operating system sounds, like the Windows rush on start up, or chimes with e-mail activity. Of course, these sounds can be turned off by design as well, through the Sounds option in Windows Control Panel. So, before looking at hardware problems, make sure these sounds are not turned off.

If you try to play an audio CD and the media player shows that the song is progressing but you can't get any sound out of the laptop speakers, odds are that the volume is turned down or muted. But it could also be due to an onboard sound hardware failure. If you are confident the volume is turned on in all possible locations and you've checked Windows Device Manager for a report of a hardware failure, try listening through headphones. If the headphones work, the wiring to the internal speakers has broken or come loose. Wiring failure is only likely if the speakers are in the lid and therefore wired through the hinges.

If you don't get any sound out of the headphones & you haven't missed a "mute" being checked off somewhere in software controls, then it really is a hardware failure. If the problem is with all sounds, including Windows chimes, internet radio, etc, then the problem is that the integrated sound processor has failed. In this case, unless the sound system is on a daughter card, it means the fix would require replacing the motherboard. But if the only thing you can't do is play audio CD's, then the problem is that the output from the DVD/CD player is muted or not getting to the amplification stage.

In modern laptops the DVD/CD players feature Digital Audio Extraction (DAE) which means that music CDs can be read digitally & the data passed to the built-in sound card or an external sound card replacement for processing, amplification then output. If there's a problem with the DVD/CD connector or if the wiring has been damaged, the music CD may get spun around without the sound making it to the sound card. The DAE output chip rarely fails on the CD/DVD drive, but the connector can fail. Make sure that digital playback is enabled in the properties tab of the drive in Device Manager.

You can replace your built-in laptop sound card with a PC card, with a USB sound card or USB speakers. These replacements make good workarounds if the integrated audio system fails. They also bring with them a whole new level of software with more volume controls, which are integrated with the existing operating system software. When shopping for replacement sound cards, keep in mind that USB solutions are much cheaper than PC cards. Also, when purchasing USB speakers to replace the laptop's sound system, don't buy speakers advertised as "USB powered". The "USB powered" speakers only draw their power from the USB port, they still need to be plugged into a regular audio jack to output any sound.

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.

How to unmute sound card in BIOS ? my sound card is working properly both in windows and ubuntu but there is no sound. it recognizes the driver and the sound card. everything seems perfect but there...


sounds more like a software issue possible "mute" in your audio or sound control panel is check. un-check it. there also should be a "FN" button on you laptop as well as some color text on your keys that may look like little speakers maybe with a arrows or +- .
also please recheck your head phones to make sure they work ok. one other thing try amplified speakers to your laptop. the output level might be to low for your head phones instead 1vpp signal it may be less.

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.

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.
