    You are correct I did not look past the OS level at what was available. Generally, when a manufacturer does not supply drivers windows has built in drivers to deal with the device -- was that attempted? (although inappropriate in this case -- my USB plantronics headset actually works without drivers as strange as that sounds) Sometimes drivers can be found on the windows update site when the manufacturer does not supply them -- this includes drivers for non-windows devices (try opening IE and choosing windows update from the tools menu).

    IE is internet explorer -- sorry about the abbreviation

    I cannot read spanish but the HP site is standard yours is an international model it appears

  • david Dec 18, 2007

    sorry no sound driver -- but we found your machine on an HP Site.



Tks everybody.

It´s built in winXP.

Sounds to me like you are missing the drivers for the soundcard...the drivers are basiclly the software thatallows your computer to communicate with the hardware (in this case the soundcard).

What you can do is download the drivers and install them , which should get you your sound back!

You can download them here:
