Question about Compaq Audio card Sound Card
Do you know for sure your speakers are working? Or is Windows saying there's no sound device? Does the Device Manager tree show any problems (! symbol) by sound hardware entries? Has the integrated sound been disabled in the BIOS settings?
Try downloading the sound drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website and reinstall. This often solves the problem.
If the integrated sound has failed, install a PCI sound card if there is an open slot on the board. Or you can also purchase a USB external sound card and plug it into an open USB port, and you don't even need to open the computer. Just be sure to disable the integrated sound in the motherboard BIOS setup.
Thanks for using Fixya! Hope your computer is talking again soon.
