Question about HP Pavilion 8860 (P2941A) PC Desktop
Sound card "died" and sound icon disappeared from taskbar; new drivers did no good and a customer service person told me that this model computer was no longer supported by HP. a. Can I still get a replacement sound card for this computer? (I guess I need the specifications for the sound card).
b.Where can I buy one?
c. Where would I get instructions for removing old card and installing new card?
Go to the bios, and check onboard audio settings. enabled that. I had the same problem

This model of PC has an integrated sound card. this means it is located on the motherboard so you can't replace it. this could be a good thing for you since you can install pretty much any PCI sound card that you want. There are cheap ones and very expensive ones available. Depending what you use your PC for even a cheap one will work, such as if you just play CDs, internet radio etc.
The instructions to install a new sound card will be included with your card, but it is one of the simplest things to install. (open case, insert, close case, let windows install drivers.)
