You have to install sound drivers for it. Go to Compaqs site, they should have drivers available (support maybe, then type your model number) and download all the audio drivers. Then check out Device Manager in the Control Panel and System and see that everything is recognized. If you dont know how to do this, you can just get all the basic drivers you need (some you can read descriptions and neglect, as they may be performance or business specific) Your friend probably reformatted the laptop without installing the drivers so more than likely your graphics are very low, you wont get wireless either etc etc... there should be no "unknown devices" listed, keep downloading all the drivers until the no more "Unknown Devices" come up. It can be a pain, but if you get a simple program like Norton Ghost, you can format and also upgrade hard drives and burn the "ghost" image to the new or recently formatted drive without the need for installing the drivers.

3. Re install the audio drivers. LINK
4. If steps 1-3 don't work, then take your speaker to your friend's computer and see if it works there? if yes then something is wrong in your computer system, if no, then something is wrong in those devices.
Refer to this image below. From your speaker the 3.5mm jack should be plugged at back of I/O ports LINE OUT.

Have you tried some external powered speakers or even some headphones?
The problem may just be a dead speaker in your case or even a loose or misplaced jumper wire from the speaker to the motherboard.
Good luck, hope this helps. Post back if you're still stuck.

LAPTOP HAS LOST ITS SOUND VOLUME


If using Window, make sure the Audio service is enabled. If you are using Windows XP, right-click My Computer and click Manage. Expand the Services and Applications. Select Services, then locate and double-click Windows Audio. Set its Startup Type to Automatic, then click Ok. Restart the computerf.

Another thing you can do is to download the latest audio driver for your system and then make sure it is listed in the Device Manager without errors.

Sir, i need to download an audio driver for my via motherboard.but i cant find it anywhere.an audio codec also support named vinyl deck but i didnt find any downlod link.feeling helpless.thank you.


Something to consider: I did a Google search for "Vinyl Deck Codecs", and it seems vinyl deck to be associated with VIA Technologies, but if I were you I would double check for yourself. I did find this one link, http://www.downloadsource.net/c161/via/ which has a VIA AC97 codec combo drivers pack for several different OS`s, or you could go to Via Technologies, and look at their list of drivers. Note, since I do not know what os you use, type of computer, onboard sound/sounddcard, or even if the via drivers are for sure the ones you need, these hints, are just suggestions/a place to start. It is possible VIA drivers are not even the type you need, but vinyl deck seems to be connected with via. Remember Google is your friend. Good luck, I know the feeling, almost nothing worse than a computer without sound.
