How do I test the sound card when the control Panel Sounds states no audio devices?

Try booting with a Linux disk and see if sound works. If so you most likely have a driver issue.

How do I test the Sound card when the Control Panel sound states no audio device?

You should check in Device Manager to see if your audio driver is installed and working properly. If not, reload it. You could also check in the BIOS setup to see if the onboard audio has been disabled. There is also a possibility that the onboard audio has failed. You can order a sound board to install in the nachine to restore audio capability. Just disable the onboard audio in the BIOS, install the card and load the drivers supplied with the card. Hook your speaker to the jacks on the new card and you're back in action.

Restore my hp computer to original factory settings

Hi garygarame...
I would try to restore the computer to a time when it was working good.
Try this solution...
Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
Pick a date when the computer was working good
Otherwise you need to format your computer( you will lose everything)
Double Left click on "My Computer". right click on the main drive (normally C drive) and click on "format"...that will clear the computer of everything.
Then reinsert your recovery CD and reinstall your operating system.
Please take time to rate me

Well, if you have anything on it you want to keep, I would burn it to cd or dvd. Then, I am guessing it still has Windows XP on it, go to accessories, system tools, and choose system restore. When you open system restore choose "restore to an earlier date", and just go back to the 1st restore point that is listed. If you want to go further you will need the reformatting discs that would have come with the computer. There could be a way to do it with XP without the discs, I just don't want you to loose some of the preinstalled programs that came with the bundle. If I am reading it right, that is a 2004 system with Windows XP Home installed on it.

Hi, I cannot get sound to come out of my speakers. The speakers are small Polk audio speakers. Can you assist me?

First try plugging in other speakers or headphones into the output to make sure the problem is not there. If the other device works the speakers are still under warranty, you can return them to the manufacturer. If you still hear no sound with the other device, post what operating system you have and I can walk you through troubleshooting.

I have a JBL Pro Premium Computer Speaker System (Powered Speakers with Subwoofer). Had been working fine, then this morning only faint sound audible. I unplugged the subwoofer and that restored some of...


It seems that the varistor have bad contact. You can try to open the sub/speaker and clean the dust inside, maybe helps. Other possibility you find the varistor and change it, but it required a little bit material and time.

I have a hp pavilion a705w bout 12-30-04 it wont boot most times

That's because it has a failing power supply. I post this a lot. Why? Because 70% or more of computer failure, is directly related to the power supply. Next up is Electrolytic Capacitor failure on the motherboard, (The 'Caps' that surround the processor, more specifically. These are Voltage Regulators for the processor)

Then harddrive failure.

Many times you'll see a solution posted to use a Restoration disk, or System Restore. This is just a 'Band-Aid' approach. The power supply, for you, is the problem.

After using recovery disc for windows xp there is no sound

You need to update the sound drivers, Find out what sound card you are using and search the web for the drivers by either typing your motherboard model or your computer model. Use search functions to help you find what you are looking for. I hope this helps. You might want to provide more info on the devices attached to your motherboard. Use device manager for more info.
