You should be able to hit f11 on the bios start screen (before windows loads) and access the on board recovery partition. just follow the prompts to recover your laptop to its original factory setting. keep in mind that all data or software that you have installed will be lost so do backups on data if needed. It is not possible to back up software so you may want to gather up some original installation cds for purchased programs such as microsoft office.

hope this helps.

CD/DVD drive only plays half first song, then skips


NO OS STATED is this XP?????
the OS is corrupted, some way, or drivers.

here are the possibles.
desktops only.
i cant see it so here goes,
is there a sound card inside the PC? in a PCI slot.???
or only the onboard sound there.
is this with external speakers. or USB phones.?
USB phones, load a 2nd sound chip that cases the onboard to fight with the USB chip ,if not setup very very carefully , ask.
all assume external speakers ,. and no Sound cards in the PCI slots.


1: OS corruption reload load it (or infected is #1 )
2: or the sound driver is corrupted or wrong one, install it fresh from HP. only from HP.

here is your support page
ever see this, this is #1 most imporant.

this PC came new with, 6 different OS new.
32bit or 64bit windows
XP, VISTA or W7
i can not guess yours.

but if your PC is not slammed with wrong OS then these all work
if you go there, and tell it your OS>
you see drivers, see sound? driver audio . see that?
i looked at Vista 32.
the chips there is called Realtek..

if you placed mp3 file on the hdd in folder (test)
then ran say, this small player first

http://www.foobar2000.org/

and if that fails, we know know the OS is messed up.
do a full virus sweep first, then malwarebytes free.
reload the realtek driver yet?

and would have saved buying new hardware.
if the file cant play the OS is messed up on MP3, file.
or a wave file

there are other causes, bad hdd, too.
id bet its not the Sound chip bad !
only OS bad. (infected, drivers wrong, or bad player, or OS corruption of any kind)

Open the Control panel
Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Verify the installed driver settings
Open the Windows Device Manager
Verify there are no conflicts or errors listed anywhere in Device Manager. If conflicts exist skip down to conflicts section.
Verify no other devices are listed. If other devices are listed skip down to other devices section.
Verify that your "Sound, video and game controllers" category is listed, if not skip down to the missing sound card section.
If no conflicts or other devices are listed and your sound card is listed with no conflicts, skip to the next section.
If you are unable to locate additional information about your issue or are unable to resolve the issue, follow the below steps.
Under Sound, Video and game controllers highlight each device and press the delete key to remove the device.
Reboot the computer.
As the computer is booting the system will detect the sound card and any of it's devices and re-install those devices. If prompted for a location of drivers, try pointing it to your sound card CD and/or your Windows CD. If this does not work or is unable to locate the proper files, you will need to get the latest sound drivers from your sound card manufacturer
If you are missing the "Sound, video and game controllers" category in Device Manager, it is likely that the sound card drivers are not installed properly, sound card has been disabled, sound card is bad, or no sound card is available in the computer. First, verify no conflicts or other devices are present in the Device Manager; if these are present it is likely they are the sound card and/or devices causing the sound card not to be detected. Second, verify that the computer has a sound card and/or that the sound card is enabled on the computer.
