Try one of these solution: 1.Try to get the latest update for your XP OS. (i. e latest service pack and update) 2.Try to download Driver for the audio to function properly (if it is external) 3. If you have a built-in sound controller Try to install your motherboard driver to update all its chipsets 4. Check your hardware stability by right clicking the my computer on the desktop,select properties,select hardware tab, select device manager button,under the sound, expand to see all the listings, check to whether audio devices are present. 5.Try to check in the control panel,select sound speech and audio devices,select sound and audio devices, click sounds tab,under the program events select one of those programs and click the play button if sound can be heard.
Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:
1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)
2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.
The best way to obtain drivers for your Presario is to go to http://www.hp.com and select the auto-detect feature which will automatically detect your computer, ask you for the operating system, Windows XP or Vista and you will be presented with a list of the drivers which will be automatically installed for you. Alternatively you can use this link to manual choose the LAN drivers listed here:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us〈=en&product=434626

1.- Your audio was working fine before? 2.- Did you install any program? 3.- It Is your sound card connected? Go>>My PC>>Properties>>Hardware>>Device Manager (see if the sound card and drivers are installed and working properly) 4.- Your speakers are connected in the right way? Are they ON? 5.- In the control panel >>Sounds>> "mute" must be UNCHECKED
If your audio was working fine before some of above reason are blocking your sound
