Lost sound on PC

I have a HP Pavillion dv9000, 17".....first user. My pc can no longer bring up sound....not even the computer sounds. when I test the configuration, it is making the sound quite ok, but there is no sound from any application used. The only sound that comes out is a "cracking like" noise. The problem is 2 days old. What can be the problem? How may I go about it?

sound card

2. On the Sound panel in control panel check show volume control
on taskbar click volume control check if sound is muted

When I play DVDs on my HP Pavillion dv5220, the sound and picture lag even when using different DVD playing programs. Why is the DVD stuttering, and what can I do to fix it?

Try using a third party program like WinDVD or InterVideo. You can get free downloads of a lot of them, and HP has never had the best record for player technology so they can use all the help they can get!

1 Answer having a hard time figuring out why my HP PAvillion dv2050us Entertainment PC lost it's sound after it was reprogram.


You need to download the drivers after the re-installation process. You need to insert the drivers and utilities disc that came with your computer when you bought it.

Just insert the disc and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you lost your disc, just click in the link below and you will be directed to a website of hp where you can download the drivers for your computer.
