Go to the device manager of your computer. You can open the device manager in the following ways:
Start - Control Panel - System and Security - Device Manager
Start - Accessories - Command Prompt - devmgmt.msc
You will have the device manager in front of you, check for the sound or audio controller. Go for the sound or audio codec or device and right click for the properties and then click on the tab saying driver and check whether the same is disabled or enabled.

No audio on speakers or headset. Both worked fine a few days ago. Activity is visible on mixer for speakers or headset (symbol bottom right), when music program is chosen. Relevant data: PC Vaio...

The error states file access denied.
It seems your login is not able to access that specified file
due to permission constraint.
  • Firstly disable UAC.
  • If you have mcaffee installed or norton, disable access protection.
  • If you created a system restore point with the True Crypt image mounted, you won't be able to restore back to that point. It needs to be unmounted before creating the restore point.
  • If you use Panda Internet Security you need to uninstall it completely in order to be able to restore to a previous point.
Before trying the above solutions you can try the following that exploit a bug on windows:
  1. turn off System Restore,
  2. Shutdown,
  3. Power Up,
  4. enable System Restore and
  5. try to Restore.
Best of luck.

Orange light comes on occassionally on mouse pad and cursor freezes, how do i stop this

Tap the orange light quickly two times to enable the touchpad. Touch the same spot twice to disable the touchpad. To see the instructions from HP type "mouse" into the Search Programs and Files. Click on "Change mouse settings" and click Device Settings. Click on "Settings" and click "Touch pad disable zone". I was delighted to have found this as I had been restarting the computer manually to enable the touchpad. Shame on HP. The instructions for this simple problem are difficult to locate for the average user. They can do better.

How do you turn off the touch pad

Some notebook users find the touch pad annoying because at times, while typing fast, their thumbs accidentally brush up against the touchpad. This is frustrating because the mouse cursor jumps to a random location on the screen and can cause undesirable things.

To turn off the touchpad when an external mouse or other pointing device is present, you can goto the Control Panel and double click the Mouse properties icon.

Click the Device Select tab and check "Disable Touch Pad when USB Pointing Device is present." The cursor will no longer move via the touchpad.

No sound for windows xp

It is possible that your computer doesn't have the audio driver for your device. For you to verify that you need to check it in the device manager.

If you are using windows xp
- click start
- click run
- type devmgmt.msc then press enter
- the device manager window will pop-up
- If you see any yellow question mark it means that there is no driver installed for that device, it's also possible that the audio driver is included there. (if that's the case then you can just install the audio driver for your computer using the CD that you have with the package)
- if you see a red x mark for the audio controller, that means that the audio device is disabled, to enable it, right click the disabled device and click on enable.

- Check the volume control of the computer if it's on mute or not

- Check your speakers if they are working or not, to prove it's working properly try to test it using your mp3 player. Check the audio cable if it's properly plugged in to your computer. Check the cable if the wiring is not broken. Or if you're only using the internal speaker, you can skip this step.

My computer is no sound..

There are 4 reasons I can think of why your computer doesn't have a sound.

1. Maybe the Audio Driver is not installed in your computer. To check that you can just go to the device manager.
- click start
- click run
- devmgmt.msc
- if you see any yellow question mark there, it's possible that one of the device that doesn't have a driver is your audio device

2. Possible that the device is disabled, you can also check on the device manager if it's enabled or not
- while you are in the device manager you will see a red x mark to a device that is disabled
- to enable that, right click it and click on enable

3. Possible that your speaker is faulty? you can try another speaker or a headset if you have, to test it.

4. Check the cables if they are properly plugged in.

The reasons that I just mentioned are the possibilities may have caused your problem. There are instances that people don't know that the volume on the computer is on mute. There maybe some other reasons that may occur. It's also possible that the audio device is faulty. It would be better if we check all the possibilities for us to pin point the root cause of the problem.

Speakers no longer work when front panel audio cable connected.

Thats the point of the jumpers. They need to be connected to make the connection so the rear is disabled when you plug things in. Here is where your jumpers should be placed:

Basicly every other bank needs a jumper.
