Question about Audio Cards
I read the manual on the speaker replacement and I thought it was a user replaceable part. It even said that all you had to do was remove the parts you mentioned and then unplug the wire connector. I just looked at it again, Figure 2-8 shows that it is a user replaceable part so you should be ok to do it. I thought I also saw a spot that shows modem replacement so you may be ablle to replace that too. However, before you do all this, did you make sure that the audio configuration is still set. Go into device manager and make sure the driver for the audio does not have an exclamation point, maybe the driver is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled. Also, go into control panel, sounds and make sure the default audio onboard audio card is selected too. Let me know how it works out.
Hi Dave, Here is a link to the service manual. When you lost the modem you have have had the speaker systerm short out too. Good news is you can replace them if this is the case. In any case the service manual has diagrams so you can see exactly how it's put toghether. Compaq also allows the user to do certain part replacements without an authorized tech, this will tell you what you can do. http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/Compaq/Compaq%20Pavilion/HP%20Pavilion%20ze5200%20Notebook%20PC.pdf Hope this helps.
