You need to install the audio driver. You can download the audio and device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: - http://welcome.hp.com/country/au/en/cs/support.html
Hi, try the following check to see if there is a problem with your device. If you have already done this come back to me! Go to start, control panel, system, hardware, then device manager; if there is a problem your audio device will be highlighted with a yellow ?. For the latest driver, go to the following link: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=432999&taskId=135
after downloading drivers,open the setup and install it to your PC.Check the sound card.the installed drivers must be suitable for your sound card.not all drivers will operate on your sound card.if still problem persists try installing vista.
