Reboot the computer. Is it connected to the headphones jack? Check the plug. Open the sound device, select the headphones.Open the Device Manager , check the audio is enabled. Re-install the driver for the audio.
Hi, for Pavilion DV2615nr is Windows 7 x64 the best way (maybe small problem with instalation coprocessor)... all drivers is nearly compatible with vista, for best running i recommend driver genius... Windows XP is step back... Because the support board for XP is the 2000 models, not models advice 2500 is newer... Drivers for vista (or 7) is here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3548266&
go to the laptop manufacturer web site and click on support option, you can also search the name, model and drivers on google it will give you the link of proper web site
good luck, and do rate the solution if got help
sorry for the delay in responding:
for Vista system ... use the following picks:
Start ....Control Panel,...... Hardware and Sound, .... Manage audio devices....Recording......Line in ...try the advanced features to control the computers auto adjustment etc.
Hope this helps
Red X just means device is disabled. In order to enable the device click on the "+" on that particular device then right click on the device itself...then click on properties..look at the "device usage" box and click it to enable your device. that should be it..
If you are using xp, try going to the control panel, sound and audio devices, click on audio tab.
to check the mic settings, click on the volume tab under the sound recording sections. Make sure that the mic is selected and the volume turned up. It may be working only to record, not to hearback without recording...so you may have to actually be recording or talking to someone to know if its workings.
To check the sound, check to see if your audio device is selected under "sound playback" section...and make sure that all channels are unmuted and turned up. you may also have to check the volume control on the laptop (actual buttons on the pc) if there are any, and make sure that the volume is up and unmuted there also.
Hope this helps.
Ok it could be a few things, I am assuming that you are using XP and its a laptop, so lets try these:
Can you turn up the volume by using Control Panel -- Sounds and Audio Devices --- Device Volume slider?
On some Compaqs, the controls for audio are activated by holding down the FUNCTION key (usually blue letters on key on the left side of keyboard) and then pressing the audio up or audio down key. These keys are usally towards the top of the keyboard. These keys can do multiple things depending if the blue function key is press down first. They can control things like switching between internal and external displays, turning up/down the brightness on your laptop display and controling your audio levels too.
Do you hear any sounds at all, if not, does Device Manager list your sound device?
