If your lap is Compaq Presario V3000Z, then this solution is for you:

You might have improper driver.

  1. if you have SP32646.EXE file then no need to download otherwise Click here to download sp32646.exe
  2. If you have SP34386.EXE file then no need to download otherwise Click here to download sp34386.exe
  3. Now you are ready to install driver.
  4. Goto device manager, right click on audio driver and select uninstall.
  5. Then reboot your system.
  6. First Install the first file i.e. SP32646.exe
  7. Then Install the second file i.e. SP34386.exe
  8. And finally njoy

If any problem...just Ask me

Thanks

Even I had the same problem when I installed XP-sp3 on my compaq CQ-60 laptop.
My problem got solved quite easily.. all i did was..
go to device manager->Sound, video and game controllers ->Conexant High Definition SmartAudio221(varies depending on model) ..
choose update driver.. a wizard opens
choose .. install software automatically
...
that was it.. and my laptop sound has come back...
Cheers!!

Make sure you post your problems properly guys!

You need to check what SP Edition your running at the moment. If you're running SP1 or SP2, then you need to upgrade to SP3. It's a major problem in SP1 (or SP2)

If this problem does not work, let me know as soon as possible.
Thanks for using Fi

SOURCE: I have installed XP in

Did the system come originally with a Windows XP Os or Vista. If it came with Windows XP pack then, you should also be provided with a recovery disk, which you can use for the purpose. If you have changed the OS, it will be difficult for you to install the driver. You can go to HP support website and get all the relevant drivers for this. Even you can select the model number. still if it doesnt work, it could be a hardware issue. Send it for a depot repair. Good Luck.

I think you must try to install realtek audio driver coz it works for most of the speakers.And if that doesn't work PLEASE check that your spekers are intalled properly.And please first completely remove the previous audio drivers.
