I had no sound in my Pardus first. I went in the settings of the Kmix symbol/speaker down at the meny list and changed the main channel from "Front" to "Master Front"
Then I restarted the pc and it was ok. But you must adjust the volume, it propably is settled on 0 % first.

In my other PC it was not necessary to do that. So it effect only some computers with no or low sound.

Hp 6730b fan speed fully fast


It sounds like your laptop is overheating, hence it speeds the fan up. I would reccomend dismantling the laptop if you are confident in doing so, clearing any dust/debris from the cooling system and putting fresh thermal paste on where applicable. Hopefully this will cure your problem. If you are not keen on taking the laptop apart I recommend taking it to your local repair store for a cooling system service.

I think I would go and download and install the audio drivers again.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "HPSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.
