Allow it to auto install the driver for the hardware. It's telling you that it requires a driver, either it is corrupted missing deleted, or any of a dozen reasons, two things that are quick fixes prior to spending a couple hours troubleshooting the machine. I assume it worked prior to today, so just do a restore to an earlier time, if the it for some reason doesn't install the proper driver. You can try installing form a disk, if you have the original disk from the laptops motherboard. other wise, go to Start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore, and allow it to restore itself to a date when all was working properly

Can someone please help me. recently my compaq


this is either a case of dead sound card ..or it has been uninstalled and disabled...if in the first case you need to find a way to install a second sound card..(this mean that you should seek for a really good repairman ...cause there are a few issues like ...
1st the card may be built in the mother board...in this case you need to find a way to install another one and you need something like a pci slot..inside...or an alternative ...
2nd the card is removable and in this case just need replaced with a similar one from the manufacturer...
those were the worst cases...but I still think that it may just be disabled...so this is what you should do ...
Go to device manager ...and right clik on the computer or the computer name ...and click on scan for hardware changes...This should bring back the device if it is present...but disabled,,
after that just install the driver for the sound card ...the same operation can be made from the control panel by add new hardware wizard ...and clik on already added...it will show you a list ...and the sound card will pop up and be seen ..
try it and let me know the results..
