After watching a movie/clip with my headphones on, I removed the headphones only to find my external speakers not working...I checked all possible changes on the system, even did a system restore, but the problems is still sound from external speakers. Are the speakers physically damaged? can I replace them?

How can i boot from usb in hp elitebook 8460p

You must first get a USB stick set up with the OS you are using and the USB stick must be formatted as to be bootable. Then you need to restart your notebook and go into the BIOS setup and change the boot order to make the USB port(s) first, otherwise you will continue to boot to the hard drive.

How to fix sound problems in HP Elitebook 8460P

Hi Rolf. Hoping I can help you here. Can you help me understand the situation a bit more?

Does the same audio behaviour happen with headphones or external speakers plugged in?

Also, this model and several other notebook models suffer from sound driver issues that result in distorted audio output such as popping noises or hissing. This occurs with all types of audio sources including CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray discs, and Internet streaming sites.

Have you also updated the chipset drivers? Even if BIOS and audio drivers are updated they both may rely on chipset drivers as well.

Is the operating system Windows 7 64bit or 32bit?

HP recommends doing a system restore to original factory setup :-(

Hp laptop wont play any dvd

If the DVD player works, *try and seek if the player recognises a DVD), then you need to install software to play your DVD. VLC Media player is excellent, free and plays anything.

I have a hp elitebook 6930p the sound is not fine. I mean the music is playing fine but the words spoken in songs and movies are not audible I don't know what to do

Laptop's are not known for there sound, the smaller the laptop the smaller the speakers are by design. That said, try different Media players with Equalizers, Real Player, VLC, etc. You can find freeware Media Players here: OR a External Speaker, I use the Bose Sound Dock:

I have a hp elitebook 8460p and my synaptisstouchpad is not working anymore.... I do have a LED on at the top left side of the touch pad but I don't know how to turn it offin order to make the touchpad...

why not use the drivers seen at HP. for this model
this model is supported 100% why not>
NO OS stated, so I cant tell you which one, is this windows 7
why post lacking that key fact?
all those things run custom HP driver,
its not just one driver, its a set, and they work as TEAM.

My guess device manager shows many things wrong.
for same reasons.

11 different OS sold with this PC, 11.
seen here

there is this magic program that might help (i never trust magic)
but you can get lucky, luck happens. if not we do it all by hand.
