Clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit.

Have deshtop pavillion a6703w. My sound was there and all of a sudden gone. Just happened last week. I have tried everything the help articles have said to do and nothing works.


Hello,

It would help me with troubleshooting if you could describe some of the steps you have taking to try and resolve this issue. I recommend this for anyone that is trying to have a problem solved.

I would recommend a couple of things to try, and my apologies if you have already tried them.

-Make sure your computer has the newest drivers for your motherboard, sound cards and graphics cards and BIOS.
-If you are using speakers you bought separately from the computer, you may need to install updates software for that as well.
I can help you get started with this step by giving you a link(below) to HP's website where you can download updated drivers.

Click here for HP support

-Make sure Windows is up to date by Clicking the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update.
-When your computer is booted up, if you look at the bottom right of your desktop, you should have a toolbar(if using Windows). In this tool bar you should have a speaker icon which is for your sound controls. If you right click on this speaker icon, you will get some options and if you click the option "playback devices", It will bring up a window that you can use to manage the sound properties. I would also make sure the sound is not muted which you can do from that same speaker icon.

Your HP computer may still be under warranty. If so, I would also recommend calling HP if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own.

Regards,
G33k

I have two Harman Kardon speakers that came with my computer. I bought a subwoofer and would like to hook it to the speakers and computers. How do I do this?


You will need a sound card which supports more than stereo sound say a 5.1 or 7.1 then you will have the extra jacks to plug in even rear, centre and side speakers if you wish as well as a sub-woofer. Cheers from Scott....pls vote

My speakers


is the drive for the speakers installed?

Check device manager. This can be done in Win XP by right clicking my computer, properties, hardware, then click device manager. Alternative way to enter device manager is by clicking start menu, control panel, system (performance and maintenance), hardware then device manager.

In the deice manager window see if any question marks or exclamation points are visible.

If so, see if it the mark is for an audio device.

If it is an audio device, uninstall the device.

Have the driver ready for the sound card by either a driver disk or by downloading the driver from the manufacturer website. This would be Dell, gateway, HP if you bought a name brand PC.

If this does not help, I need more details about your computer such as Vender, motherboard, and dedicated sound card if applicable.

Sound


Make sure your volume is not on mute. If the speaker icon on your lower right has a red x means its on mute. To test go to control panel and double click sounds and test. If Windows sounds work without speakers then problem is with speakers. Make sure volume is up, make sure its properly connected to correct output jack (usually green or light green). Also make sure speaker power on. If those things are correct check your device manager ( right click my computer) select "manage", click on "device manager" and on right pane check to see if theres any yellow exclamation, question mark or red x on the sound device section. Yellow exclamation or question mark means to update or install correct drivers. Check your speaker box if it comes with a CD.

Which port do you have it connected in on the back? It should be connected to the green port. Also make sure that you dont have the volume muted. You can do that by clicking the speaker in the bottom right corner next to the time. The click the speaker and the bottom of that window. Its muted when it has a red circle with a slash throught it. To toggle it all you have to do is click it.

Thanks
