    If you have access to ear phones, check and see it you have sound through the jack. If so , that would show that the pproblems lies weither in the jack orr the speakers

Plz send down load link for sound driver for compaq presarioc700

Did you try going to webpage, then click support, then drivers & downloads, then fill in info of your computer to be directed to the proper driver download, its all free. If you already did this, and did not get any assistance, then you need to go to Device Manager, click on sound triangle arrow, this should give you the system for your computer, right click it then "upload driver update software" and windows will try to update driver for you. If this doesn't work then you have to go to the manufacture of the sound systems webpage (like Alps, etc.) and download the driver from them directly. Hope this helps, be patient this all takes time on your part to do, good luck.

Problem for sound drivers

I think this is just a matter of updating your driver
if your system came with vista your sound may not be compatible but there are ways to make it work
try the update driver first
and make sure your system picked up the soundcard after you installed xp

No sound on laptop

1. Check if the sound is on mute.
2. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Check if the sound driver is not installed or has been disabled.
3. Check the speakers. Use external headphones, if the headphones are working properly, means the speakers of Laptop are damaged.
