Question about HP Compaq nx6110 PC Laptop
I need sound on my laptop! My speakers will not pick up any sound and I have tried messing with the volume controls on my computer but nothing has worked. Can I download something to give me sound??? I have windows XP. Please help someone!!
Somebody else has just had a similar problem so lets see if we can do some of the easy stuff first.
First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.
Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.
Open volume control.
If the volume contol on your computer is greyed out then you need to check the hardware from the control panel.
When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.
Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.
If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing
(nothing else unles you know you want that item)
Now close the slider box.
Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.
If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.
If you have any exclamation marks by any hardware you need to sort that out. (maybe drivers first)

I would check to see if your sound drivers are properly installed. You can do that by following these steps:
Check to make sure your sound hardware is listed as well. If it isn't one in the list, it might either be disabled in the bios or not working.
