It could be the video itself. First, try to watch different movies and check if the same problem occurs. You can reload the sound driver if that is the same problem persists.

You may have accidentally disabled it. Right-click the volume icon and select "Playback Devices"
Right-click a blank space and select "Show disconnected devices"
If a device shows, right-click and select "Enable"
If that fails, open the start menu, and in the search bar type "device manager". Click on the "Device Manager" option. Once it loads, find "Sound, video and game controllers" Click the arrow to the right of it. If there are no drivers there click "View" at the top of the screen and select show hidden devices. If it's still not there, click "Action" and tell it to find new devices.
If it appears, make sure you have the drivers installed. You can update a driver by right-clicking the device and selecting the update option. If you had to use the "Action" option it should automatically install the drivers.
If none of this worked, you may need a new sound card.

After you restart the computer, determine whether you can hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, try Method 2. uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Try another sound deviceIf it is possible, try plugging a different sound device into the computer. For example, if you were using speakers, try a different pair of speakers or a set of headphones to make sure that the problem is not related to the sound device.

Determine whether you can hear sound. If you can hear sound, there is a problem with the original sound device and the issue is resolved. If you cannot hear sound, plug the original sound device back into the computer, and then go to Method 3. uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Unplug the computer speakersUnplug the computer speakers or other sound devices that you may be using, such as headphones, from the computer and then plug them back in to the same port.

  1. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, type Sound in the Start Search box.

    2. On the Playback tab, select the playback device, click Configure, and then make sure the configurations are set correctly.
    If the sound settings are set correctly, you are using speakers as the sound device, and your speakers are already set as the default device, go to method 5 now.
  4. Select the sound device that you want as the default sound device, and then click Set Default.
  5. Click OK to save your settings and to close the Sound dialog box.

    You receive a message that states that a hardware device is being installed, and then the uninstalled audio device appears in Device Manager.
  8. Close the Device Manager dialog box.
Determine whether you can now hear sound. If you can hear sound, the issue is resolved. If the current sound driver did not reload or if it did reload, but you cannot hear sound, try method 7. uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 7: Update the current sound driver If the current sound driver does not seem to be working, see whether there is an updated sound driver that you can install. To request an updated sound driver, contact the manufacturer of the sound driver.

For information about how to contact hardware and software vendors, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/vendors/en-usNote In some cases, the manufacturer may instruct you to uninstall the current sound driver and to delete the driver files.

No sound


Possible that the sound card drivers must be reloaded, so get the drivers for the laptop and reload them.
if there is no sound even after the software is loaded, it can be a hardware failure, check withheadphone, if so speakers or if no output the output or sound card is faulty.

Mic doesn't work with skype or any other type of video communication.


At first please check whether the Microphone on the system works or not.
I mean click on start and in start search type Sound Recorder.
Try to record and play soomething, if it does not play then its an issue with either the Operating System or the Sound Card installed on the Motherboard.
It might be an issue with the driver as well,.
So click on Start and in start search or RUN type devmgmt.msc and then hit enter.
This would take you to the device manager page.
Now locate an option which reads as Sound, Video and Game Controllers.
There would be a + sign next to it.
Click on it, locate the sound driver.
It migh be IDT High definition sound device
or Connexant Driver.
Right click on the driver and then click on Uninstall.
It would ask for a confirmation.Click on Ok to confirm and then look right at the top of the screen and locate an option which as ACTION.
Click on it and then click on SCAN for Hardware Changes.
Restart the computer and then again try to check whether the sound recorder works or not.
If the sound recorder works then its an issue with the Application which you are trying to use over the web and if its not then its an issue with the sound card.
For that you need to check in the BIOS.
Restart the computer and tap on the F10 key, it would take us to the BIOS set up...now try tapping any keys...
If the keys make a beep sound then the Sound Card is fine then you need to reinstall the Operating System.
And if the keys does not beep, Call Hp they would take the notebook in for repairs...

1. There's been a problem when you either load a program or utilize another audio software, it will shut off the audio in the properties, or your driver got corrupt and needs reloading. These have been two of the issues I've had and fixed. Good luck.
