Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS840/W Notebook
im working on a sony vaio vfg840 w laptop, and the audio drivers are driving me insane. im working with a clean install of XP SP2. after trying for an hour without success to get the thing to play audio, i formatted the machine and started over. i downloaded all the drivers fresh from the sony website....everything else seems to work fine. i run the executable for the Realtek High Definition Audio, and it installs. I can go to device manager and see the device loads with no conflicts. the realtek volume control / settings app loads in the tray. everything looks fine - but i max out all the volumes, toggle the speakers on and off, plug in headphones, speakers, you name it....and no audio! i don't know whats wrong. the guy whos laptop it is swears the speakers have worked before, im not ready to blame hardware just yet. anyone else have this problem?
If not anything open the system and check the connections sounds like you have hit on everything else besides that
