Re: sound comes and goes on my HP dv2000
Your sound is intergrated into the motherboard and it will not be a connection issue.
The problem in most cases is the drivers for your sound.
You can go to HP.com and download your drivers and re-install.
This should take care of your problem.

sounds like it can be the hardware. try to uninstall and reinstall the latest audio driver then configure your speaker settings and volume settings. if this does not work, you may need to get the audio card or motherboard replaced.
Right click on your speaker icon in the lower right corner, select audio properties, you can lower the volume of the speakers when you use headphones or you can select a profile from the same screen and select the type of speakers you want to use; headphones, desktop speakers, etc.
You will find that in control panel . firstly, click on start menu from there click on control panel and then click on sound amd audio devices after that you will find a pop up menu where you will find place volume icon on the task bar then click it to check it and click the apply and then ok. you will find it back on the task bar ok.
You say that you get sound from the speakers but not the headphones,, what i advice you to do is going to control panel, go in hardware and sound, in device manager, look for your sound driver for example, sound max, once you found them right click and uninstall, afterwards restart your pc, that should fix your sound by reinstalling your drivers, if that doesnt work i recommend going to control panel sound settings and switching sound outputs..
Has sound been working in the past? If so - it's possibly a hardware issue but not always.I'll presume you're using Windows XP as the operating system.
Check these in the following order:
1. Check that windows volume is not muted. Depending on version of Windows, you may have a volume icon in the bottom right hand corner - it looks like a speaker - and if muted there will be a red circle over it.
2. Go to Windows Control Panel and Sound and Audio Devices settings.Check all volume are maximum.
3. Check that the right device is being used to output the sound by checking in Control Panel > Sound and Audio Devices > Audio tab. There are drop down lists. Check that Default Device is your soundcard (usually something like Soundblaster or similar.
4. It could be your Windows sound drivers. You need to go to HP website and look around for drivers.
5. Hope this helps and please report back how it goes...
