You need to download the audio driver from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers

The speaker test works on realtek speakers but otherwise no sound can be heard (even when un-muted)


- Click on the "Start" button
- Click on "Control Panel"
- With the Control Panel in "Control Panel Home" view please click on "Hardware and Sound"
- Where it says "Sound" in green letters there are three options below that are in blue click on "Manage Audio Devices"
- This will bring up a window labeled "Sound"
- On the "Playback" tab there is listed the sound options available to you. One should read "Speakers HD Audio Device" Click on that.
- There should now be a check mark on that option.
- The Sound should then play through your Speakers

My microphone is built in to the computer but will not even show up in my recording devices. it used to work fine and now it doesnt say it even exists on the computer.


See last paragraph of instructions below re unlisted devices.



Using a microphone with computer

To use any microphone with your computer you will need to enable it in control panel. The following instructions are for Windows XP but are broadly similar for Vista and Win7


Click START, CONTROL PANEL, SOUNDS & AUDIO DEVICES


Click VOICE


In Sounds & Audio Devices Properties window locate SOUND PLAYBACK box. Click the VOLUME button. Make sure that there is not a check-mark in the MUTE box against microphone in the list of devices and that the volume slider is at the top of the scale.


Make sure the MUTE ALL box isn't checked before closing the window.


Now click the VOLUME button in the SOUND RECORDING BOX. Here SELECT microphone as an input source for recording (as opposed to un-checking mute in the playback controls).


NOTE if your microphone is not listed in the 2 sets of volume controls click OPTIONS, PROPERTIES on the tool-bar and place a check against microphone in the list entitled 'show the following volume controls' and then click OK. Same applies for Internal mic.


That should be it.


To adjust audio volume generally.

Under VOLUME tab adjust Device Volume as necessary. Also (under Loudpeaker Settings) click Speaker Volume and adjust slider to suit.


You might put a check mark in the box to show the volume control on the Task Bar so you can go straight to it to make adjustments in the future.

If you're using Category view of Control Panel, click on the Hardware and Sound category and then click on Adjust System Volume under the Sound option.

Hello i have a tsoshiba tecra laptop and i wanted to find out if i have sound or not and were is it located to see if i need a sound card or not


Hello
Dear Friend...
You can check your Device Manager under My Computer / Right Click / Properties / Hardware Tab / Device Mgr

You need to check the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option.....

if it's greyed out then u dont have a Sound card or the card is corrupt....
if no internal sound card is present or if it's not working then u have this alternative....buy a " USB Sound Adaptor" and connect it to the USB port and connect the speaker sound jack to the sound port in this adaptor....u will get back the sound....also keep in mind that u " may " have to disable onboard sound in BIOS, u may also have to make changes in the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option... Click the drop down button and select the "USB Audio Devices/Headset"

You can get this in Ebay for $1 to $4 or google it to locate a place near u......

This is the one i am refering to(I bought it in Ebay for 1$)....u can buy something similar also....there are many available, all of them are made in China, as it's USB enabled plug and play, connect it to your PCs USB port....you will not need any software or driver to install it....Winodws will auto install it and show it under the Device Manager / Sound Audio and Games Ctrlr as told above and will also show it under Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices

If you find this solution useful please leave a feedback and rating to this solution.

Regards....
All the best, my dear friend..9dbeb35.jpg

I want to download conexant hd audio 221 xp c770tu diver how can


The headphones would not be the issue unless they came with an actual software cd included. If your audio Drivers are not the correct ones for your audio device on your computer, download the proper ones. Best way to find out what you have is to look under Device Manager which is in Control Panel, Under the System>Hardware Option in the Control Panel Folder.

Verify that your device is working properly. If it is working properly. and All other audio options, like Speakers work, then the Headphones are malfunctioning and you will need to contact the manufacturer.

If no audo works at all but the Device is listed as working properly, then you possibly have a damage audio jack port
