Yes its possible but you will need the drivers of this sound card which you may do so from hp support website. however if you are using Vista and it does not the driver pre-installed in the Vista OS then it will not work.............sodeep

    Just connect the hardware, connect to the internet, when the hardware wizard appears, direct it to install the driver automatically, from the net if required and it will definitely search it out. If that does not work, visit driverguide.com, enter the make & model of the soundcard(register yourself, its free).....sodeep

How do I resume my screen on VA10 desktop


It sounds like it is locking up when going to sleep. You can try disabling the sleep option in the power section of the control panel. Does the display work at all (such as when you first boot up)?
It is also possible the video card (whether on board or add on) may be bad.

How does a hp pavilion a1514n desk top sound card look like and instaled


your model of PC doesn't have a sound card; the sound hardware is built onto the motherboard and cannot be removed. You can add a sound card n one of the additional PCI slots however, for example see
http://www.pixmania.co.uk/sound-card/asus-xonar-dg-5-1-sound-card-pci/08184127-a.html#description
Lots of pictures on this page
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=hp+sound+cards&_osacat=0&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xhp+sound+cards+pci&_nkw=hp+sound+cards+pci&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Ensure that any card is not too long or too high to fit in your particular PC
For instructions on fitting (physically) one of these cards see
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00311110.pdf
Look here
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=fitting+soundcard+to+desktop
for videos of the fitting procedure and even how to choose a card. Any of these will show the fitted sound card as well as how for a range of desktop PCs to do it.

Thats because if you havent upgraded your soundcard with win7 then the sound card wont recognize any commands from a system more advancede than what the graphics card is compatable with.

Speakers not working of desk top. I have tried same speaker to may laptop it is working please suggest


Am wondering if the sound card of your desktop has been working before? If it has, then fear not. Just properly restart your system. It should work. If your just using a speakers on it and its not responding? then you would have to check your audio settings first before thinking of getting a new sound card.

Having speakers to work on vizo desk top . all in on desktop!


You need to remove the unknows first. Try the speakers on another device. You could try a walkman, another computer or anything with an 1/8th" Stereo jack. Prove that the speakers work or get a pair of headphones to check out your PC. If you are using the green jack on the back try the headphone jack on the front. If the front works and the back doesn't check the sound card options / set up. Some have an icon by the time in the bottom right corner others will need to be found under the sound effects manager or the sounds and audio devices icon. I suspect if you get this far something has been turned off in the software.

MY SOUND CARD


Hi, you should have the driver CD for soundcard as it is shipped with the new sound card - if not you must download the driver for the soundcard not for the Chipset of the computer. Look at the soundcard - normal the driver manufacturer and model is shown on the "biggest" chip fixed on the soundcard - donwload the driver as shown on the chip of the soundcard from the manufacturer and install. (ensure you select driver for you operating system)

Hope this help.
Regards
