Maybe your drivers are out of date. try going to your sound card manufacturers website and download the drivers.

After formatting my pc, there is no longer sound when playing audio.

In order to get your sound working you will have to determine what sound card you have installed. If it is an add-on pci card you should be able to see on the card's main chip what type you have. If the sound is integrated in the motherboard you will have to look for the name and model number of the board and browse to the manufacturers website and look for your sound driver in their support pages.

Unhook it, and try restarting. If it doesn't work, try reinstalling the drivers of the sound card.

Sound only works with headset. No longer comes

If the sound is working through another device then it seems that the internal speakers are bad. Because if the sound card was bad you wouldn't have any sound whatsoever, same goes for drivers. Probably just some bad speakers. If you have some other external speakers try plugging them into the headphone port and see if that helps.

Vista Ultimate = no sound

Looks like you need to buy a new soundcard. Creative Labs makes an excellent 7.1 digital card for PCI slot that is relatively cheap. Just make sure when you purchase the card, it is Vista Compatable.

HP Pavilion 8860-sound card

this model of PC has an integrated sound card. this means it is located on the motherboard so you can't replace it. this could be a good thing for you since you can install pretty much any PCI sound card that you want. There are cheap ones and very expensive ones available. Depending what you use your PC for even a cheap one will work, such as if you just play CDs, internet radio etc.
The instructions to install a new sound card will be included with your card, but it is one of the simplest things to install. (open case, insert, close case, let windows install drivers.)
