Question about HP Pavilion dv7-1132nr Notebook PC
I have called the place I got the laptop from and they told me all of things I have done to make sure the volume is up and working I am doing right..... the volume is not working and it used to.
I've had a similar problem once or twice over the years. What you're going to want to do is reinstall the audio driver your computer came with which can be done through the recovery manager. It will ask you if you want to perform a program recovery, select no. Afterwards it willa sk you if you want to perform a driver recover and select yes. scroll down the list of drivers and select the audio one. it will take a few minutes to install and then to restart your computer. your volume should be up and running again. Good Luck!

a microphone with computer
To use any microphone with your
computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following
instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista
Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS
& AUDIO DEVICES
Now click the VOLUME button in the
SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here you need to SELECT microphone as an input source for
recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback
controls). If your webcam/ microphone is built in to the laptop there should also be a volume control called 'Internal MIC' - disable it by placing a check-mark in the mute box.
NOTE if microphone (or internal MIC) is not listed in the
2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and
place a check against microphone in the list entitled
'show the following volume controls' and then click OK.
That should be it but it is possible you may also need to turn off the microphone in the software for your web-cam.
