Your model of PC doesn't have a sound card; the sound hardware is built onto the motherboard and cannot be removed. You can add a sound card n one of the additional PCI slots however, for example see
Lots of pictures on this page

Ensure that any card is not too long or too high to fit in your particular PC
For instructions on fitting (physically) one of these cards see
Look here
for videos of the fitting procedure and even how to choose a card. Any of these will show the fitted sound card as well as how for a range of desktop PCs to do it.

SOURCE: HP Pavilion audio disappears with new graphics card.


The Pavillion systems normally have just enough power to support the comonents that came with it if you are putting a bigger graphics card in it could lack power on other componets thus causing the issue to solve your issue you will need more power check on what is recommended for the graphics card you are inserting I would say 400w should be ok depending on how power hungry the graphics card is

SOURCE: Change HP Pavilion Slimline s7520n Video Card?

The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.

The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).

SOURCE: where can i find a high speed usb port on the hp

Hi Bob,
Usually the USB ports are either on the front of the unit or you may find some on the back of the unit. All USB ports are now HighSpeed, using the 2.0 delineation. Any port you find will do what you like for that particular unit.
Hope this answers your query.
Please rate and comment, Thank You Joe

How do I change native resolution on HP Pavilion a1120n when the choices in the display window don't match the recommended setting for my monitor?

If you cannot change the screen resolution then most likely the wrong video driver was installed.
Check the make and model of the graphics card and install the driver.

a1514s are relics now, called LEGACY by HP
with the old Intel Pentium 4 (2006 release date)
so you think a P4 can run 2 monitors? wow.
means zero support from HP, and omg XP
XP is dead, now, MS and HP do not support, XP and is a virus magnet.
learn that old HP did not HAVE the magic auto switch in bios back in the dark ages.
you must go in to BIOS and flip the switch there.
1 binary bit.
the oldest made A1500 is now 17 years old we scrap these
or sell them to N.Korea so his stinking nukee/ABCM controls fail.
old old old box
in bios, hit F10 go in to bios;
and turn off the local GPU chip
then with the card inserted, boot the pc and it can work
if not, try all Xpress slots there.
deep in the parts surfer shows
that is your mobo type.
hp has only these pages on it, using deep searches at HP old archive .

so is only 1 X16 slot there.
there is no service manuals free
no bios manuals, i can find, zero.
so you get to do like all techs do , is look in the bios
and find it and flip the bit,(onboard vGA/GPU OFF)
and if there,set search order, GPU.
to slot /onboard.
that is all on relic mobos

it will not make a gaming system, at all,
its too weak if that is the unstated goal.

Blank screen on my dv9608ca laptop i changed power inverter and screen its very dark can faintly see desk top items. everything works when in connect to different monitor so can it still be video card

It sounds like your laptop's Back Light is out. The screen has two layers, the LCD display, which provides the image, and the back light, which gives it brightness and clarity. Unfortunately, it is no easy fix and typically costs more than a new laptop to replace. I'd recommend calling HP themselves if you want to get it repaired.
