    Could you tell me if you have checked the sound and volume in the control panel?

    Could you tell me since when you are facing this issue and also what is the Operating system that you have installed on the comptuer?

    Is it windows Vista or Xp?

Could you tell me the make/Model of the Compaq that you are facing an issue with?

Also do you have a sound card installed on the computer?

Please click on start then right click on My computer there you would see an option called Manage click on it and select device manager on the left side of the window that opens up,

After you have done that please scroll to the bottom of the page click on the +sign in from of game controllers and sound and see what is the audio card or the sound card listed there.. That would be of great help. Thanks.

    First I would like you to go ahead and uninstall the audio drivers from the compter.
    You could do that by going to the device manager right click ont he audio that is present there and select uninstall in the drop down menu.
    After you have done that please restart the computer.
    Then please update these two drivers from the links that I am sending you please check if it resolved the issue.

That is the link to the Geek Squad general price list. It would be best to call them and talk to them inperson and not just go by the prices listed on the site. Also, if you are still under waranty, you are always best off having the manufacture do the repair work for then your waranty on all work done is covered and also the new parts are covered by waranty under the manufacture.

If warranty, no body better then Apple. I've heard of good and bad stories from Geek Squad, so I guess it depends what you need.
