On XP: right click "my computer" select "manage" double click on "device manager" and on the right look for and double click "Sounds.video and game controllers". Here you will see your sound drivers if you have one. If theres a yellow exclamation then you need to install the driver or if not you need to update it or you can uninstall all the sound driver that you see there, reboot and Windows will usually sense and installt the driver for you. If theres no correct driver it will ask you to point it to the right location of your driver (CD, etc).

Uninstalling and reinstalling it will usually get you the right driver but if not go to your vendors support site to download the driver

Sound driver unistall and how to restore sound driver


Go to Control panel > Add Remove programs (locate the audio driver installation) > click Uninstall (Remove).
The presently installed audio driver will be removed from the system.
Reboot the System
Right-Click 'My Computer' icon.
Click 'Properties'.
Click 'Device Manager'
Click on 'Sound and Game controllers'
Right click 'Audio device'
Select 'Update Driver'
That's all. The audio driver will be re-installed. If you have the Driver CD of the audio card, just put it into CD driver, before doing this. If you have internet connection, connect it too. If so, the system will audo-search for the audio device, and will install it automatically either from the O/S, CD Rom or by internet. [Before doing all of this, connect the system to internet, Insert the Audio Driver CD in the CD Rom (if you have it]

Try switching audo devices in control panel. If that doesn't work you must use system recovery disks provided when you bought your laptop.

NO Sound when I use my headphone


There are independant controls for headphones as well as speakers. Some models have 3 ports on them, 1 for speakers, 1 for headsets and 1 for microphone aside from the cheesy one that comes with the system. There should be a sound effects manager as well as a sound and audio device option. Try the audio device option. And look around the system, there should be a control to turn up the volume!
