Yes,

Run windows updates, Start>programs>windows update
It will ask you if want to da an express or custom update, select custom.
On the left you will see optional hardware updates, select all and install.

Or you can go to start>settings>control panel>system>device manager> select your sound card and update driver via internet.

Hope this helps

After some time my sound card stop working but as i reinstall he driver the sounds come back is there any problem with my sound card or with the driver


I just posted this same problem myself last night. I found another tip and tried it and it solve my problem.
1. Go to MY Computer properties by rt clicking on the icon
2. Go to Hardware tab and look for your Sound(click the + sign)
3. Right click only the sound device that is a problem and click "remove or unistall". Leave all the codecs or other things you see in there.
4. Close everything and Reboot
5. Windows XP will recognize "found new hardware" and installs the drivers automatically if it is still in the system, if not you have to reinstall from your recovery disks.
6. Reboot again (that's how I got my sound back)

REALTEK LOST MY WINDOWS SOUNDS


Hi,
Reinstall the newest Realtek drivers. These are the sound drivers for the sound card and you shouldn't have uninstalled them.

Alternatively, on rebooting the computer, you can press F8 and enter the BIOS and use the arrow buttons to navigate to the sound settings for the motherboard and change the motherboard sound output from PCI (sound card) to OS (onboard sound). This will mean you have to plug your speakers into the other set of audio holes inthe back of the computer and the sound will come straight from the motherboard.
Most people prefer to use the sound card though, as it is far superior, especially when using the latest Realtek or Creative drivers installed. (don't you use a creative driver... you have a RealTek card!)
So reinstall the Realtek Hd Audio driver and don't mess with it anymore :)

Good Luck!

PS Did you try playing a song and trying the different audio ports on your computer? Or checking the Volume Control to check that nothing is muted or turned down?

Hello! Just weeks ago I had to re-install windows xp to my computer. However, after i reinstalled it, I discovered the version I have is an older version of windows than I had before. As a result, I now...


If you re-installed Windows XP and you had Windows XP you did not install an older version - you just need Windows updates and most likely the sound card driver. Windows Update may eventually provide a driver, but I'd check the HP Website (HP owns Compaq) for drivers.
