Question about HP Compaq Computer Speakers
I had to reload all the original windows XP after a computer problem and since then the internal speakers won't work. A message says I don't have speakers. I tried reloading the Critical Security Updates - but that didn't help. What do I need to do. I hear alert beeps but will not play from the headphone jack or when I put in a DVD for a movie or music.
First you need to make sure you have drivers for your sound card. Just right click on "My Computer" and a menu will appear, left click on "properties". A window will appear, click Hardware and then Device Manager. When that opens you will see all the stuff on your computer, look for sound, video and game controllers. Click on the little plus sign and see if it has six items listed. You should see something like "Realtek Audio and if you don't you need to load the drivers for your computers sound card.

No drivers needed for them to work in XP, this I know for sure. Any other operating system, I can't say with any certainty. But I would assume they would work ok in Vista as well.
When plugged into a Windows XP system, they show up in the device manager as "Harman Kardon SoundSticks" without any additional software or drivers. Hope this helps.
