    I am going to have my fiance check for me. My USB port just sunk into the tower so that is also broken and on the same day as the sound going off my printer broke. It just wont turn on anymore! So we may need a new pc soon. None of my 3 USB ports work anymore now.

You're looking to download the first driver on the list, the, "Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Update." Once you download it simply opening the downloaded file should install the driver for your sound chipset. If not, read the instructions on the download page for detailed step-by-step instructions on how to properly unpackage and install the drivers.

If installing these driver's doesn't do the trick, let me know. I'll try to help you debug the problem and get the whole issue resolved.

Let me know how it turns out or if I can assist you further.

    Well then, does the device manager list any devices with a question mark icon (?) next to them?

    It sounds as if your sound card/chipset isn't being recognized and is therefore presenting this problem.


  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 14, 2009

    Okay, on system startup enter the BIOS. To enter the BIOS, watch the screen while the system is starting up. In particular, we're looking at the screen before the Windows logo (Windows XP, Vista, or even 7 loading screen) loading screen.We're looking for some text which allows us to enter the BIOS setup. It will look similar to this:

    Press to enter Setup.

    The moment you see that text, press the button associated with the text (in this case F2) repeatedly until a new screen appears which will be the BIOS setup screen. Your text may be different though, so keep your eyes open and don't expect to be pressing F2.

    Once inside the BIOS, browse around the menus. We're looking for an option which will enable or disable onboard sound. Once found, make sure it is set to, "Enable" or something of similarity. If it already was, disable the device then exit the BIOS saving changes. If the problem persists upon the next startup, enter the BIOS again enabling the device you just disabled. And if that doesn't do the trick, it sounds as if your sound chipset has gone bad.

    If your sound chipset has gone bad it won't be worth replacing. Simply buy yourself a PCI sound card which will work with your system. The upside is that now your processor won't have to play the sounds allowing it to do more important things (speeds up your computer some).

    Please note, the above suggestion is if you are/were using onboard sound. If you're not using onboard sound and instead are using an actual sound card, let me know.

    Let me know how it turns out. I really hope this will solve your problem.

  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 15, 2009

    Wait, did you enable the onboard sound in the BIOS, then exit the BIOS
    saving changes. Or did you enable afterward immediately disabling the
    onboard sound in the BIOS then exiting saving changes?



    We want to leave the onboard sound enabled after we exit the BIOS saving changes.

  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 16, 2009

    Yes, that is correct. So it appears that the soundchip is dead or broken in some way.

    The easiest way to get around this problem (practically fixing it) is to buy a new sound-card. Let me know if you need assistance locating a sound-card that will work with your system. I will be more than happy to assist you.


  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 16, 2009

    You don't necessarily have to buy one from this website (although it would make sense since they are at a very low price). It's mainly to locate a sound card you think will meet your needs.

    NewEgg

    Once the page loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Input Devices. Afterward click, "Sound Cards" located in the menu on the left (Make sure you don't click, "Sound Card Accessories." It's not the same thing).

    You will want to buy an internal sound card, not a USB, Firewire, or some other form of external sound card. Typically internal sound cards are seated in the PCI or PCIe (x1) slots. If you need help figuring out if you have an open PCI or even PCIe (x1) slot, let me know. I will gladly assist you in opening up your computer to locate just such a slot.

    Please note, you must be certain that you are buying a sound-card that fits and works with your computer. As mentioned above, you must first know if you have the slot (PCI or PCIe) to support the sound card. Then secondly you must ensure that the sound card works with your operating system (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Mac, Linux, etc...). Once you have confirmed both you can continue with searching for more sound cards or buying your selected sound card.

    Once again, if you need me to explain anything mentioned above, or if you simply require assistance on a different matter, let me know. I'll be more than happy to assist you.


  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 17, 2009

    I suppose that means you don't need information on how to determine if you have an open PCI or PCIe (x1) slot? :-)


  • Peter Steiert
    Peter Steiert May 18, 2009

    Wow, that's horrible!

    Check with HP, it might still be under warranty. If it is you can get it fixed or even replaced, for free.

Check the driver, see if it is working probraly, and may need to be reinstall or update... also check to see if your sd card would work on another machine. If it does, then it is not your card...sometimes windows won't reconize it until it's formated, but then in this case, it should reconize it, but you wouldn't be able to open it only.

I lost the sound on my computer


click on start then RIGHT click on my computer(xp) or computer (vista/7) then click on manage then click on device manager on the top of left of the computer management screen.

On the top right window will appear a list of all devices on your computer. Check that the sound card has no yellow exclamations marks on it and that it is functioning correctly. If you see a error with it then simply right click on it and click uninstall or remove. Restart the pc and see if it works if it still isnt functioning correctly you should go to hp and download the audio drivers for your pc

they can be found here

Laptop will beep but has no other sound.


To check, click windows start button, point to computer, click manage, then look for device manager. If you see an exclamation or "x" mark on your audio device this means that your audio driver is not properly installed.

Uninstalle the audio driver then re-intall it again. visit www.hp.com/support and look for your audio driver if you dont have the cd installer.
