Compaq Presario R3000 Sound card follow-up question

Hi, I had recently written about my sound card working intermitently.  If I tap the lower right side of my laptop, the sound will go back on.  You had indicated that it can be done, but I would need patience.
Could you provide a little more detail.  What part would I need, tools required,...
Thanks for your help, Jeff

    I too have intermittent sound. When pressing the right corner the sound will come back on but stops as soon as I stop pressing. Presume a wire is loose inside, but is it possible to fix?

The sound board is connected to the mainboard by a connector and contra-connector, both soldered to their boards.. If you want to do it right, you will have to remove several screws from that bottom corner and left side, under the battery too, so that you can lift up the mainboard's corner (gently!) a bit, and put in back in place firmly. It is located just above the top left side of the battery compartment, when looking at the bottom with the front toward you. A more durable option is to take the bugger apart, and put washers max. 1mm thick under the soundboard to get a better snap-in on those connectors.

I have install window xp professional sp2 in notebook compaq presario v3424TU. i have installed the sound drivers but the sound still not coming. thell me the way follow to


Hey mate,

You should look for an external audio card maybe some of the capacitators and transistors in your built in sound device have ceased.

Check the web for external sound card for your notebook.

You have a great night.

Do advise on the results.

Hi

The sound card drivers are most likely missing / not installed.
You can download them from the HP/compaq website

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.
