Question about HP Vs17 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Sound Ok, i just reformated my computer and reinstaled windows and got all the updates. now, my volume is not working at all. in dxdiag says there are no devices. also when i open volume control a message pops up saying "there is a problem with your sound hardware. To install mixer devices, go to control pannel, click printers and other hardware devices, and then click add hardware." when i do this there are no new software devices to use. *side note. my speakers worked perfectly fine before i reformated* i think i just need to get the computer to recongize my sound card or my monitor, but im not exactly sure how, help is greatly appriciated!

You just need to reinstall the audio drivers for your soundcard.
If you provide the model number for your motherboard I can help you locate them. Installing is very easy after that, Just run a setup program.

The motherboards model number will be printed on the board in failrly large letters and numbers. You may have to move a few things out of the way to find it though.
If your not comfortable opening the side of your computer then download CPU-Z unzip it and install it. It will give you the information needed without having ot open your computer.

    Is this motherboard by chance installed in a HP Desktop case?

    If so, it should have the model number for the computer on the case somewhere.



    These boards are made my Asus, then rebadged to OEM suppliers as something else, in your case, Goldfish.



    If your drivers are correctly installed, then there should be a speaker icon on the task bar, click it and see if it's not muted.

    Chances are it has had Microsoft generic drivers installed and they are not working though.

    The correct driver should be THIS one from the HP website.



    For reference, bookmark THIS page for your drivers etc

    Is it the HP A744 series desktop, that is where HP lead me.



    There is a link at the bottom of the page also (use link 2) with a list of original drivers. HERE



    Are you still running XP, or have you moved to Vista?

Mp3 song not plying why


make sure your sound is turned up, be sure if you have external speakers be sure they are plugged in and they are on and turn the volume half way up. Next open the speaker on the lower right side on the task bar double click on it and raise the volume up next be sure the speaker does not have a red x in it, if thats OK then update your windows media player and try again, also be sure that windows medial player does not have the volume turned down and be sure the speaker is not x'ed out in media player. hope this helps.

Go into control panel / sounds / sounds and audio / select audio blind / should see a driver listed in each device. Back to sounds blind /test sound, if you can see the black arrow but its greyed out then driver is faulty. If you can click on it and it changes baxk to th esquare all is OK, ensure the sound jack is plugged into the GREEN ones at rear PC. Also check in volume blind that speakers are selected.

Sound problem


Hello....
No Sound, No Volume Control, Mixer not Found, No Sound device installed…etc etc, This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just trying to do some service and help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.

No sound comming from my computer


Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.

Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those

Re No sound from monitor speakers


Thanks for the info,

Ok heres what I would doo to fix this.....

Get the original disk with the drivers on it and reinstall it.

If you don't have the disk then you will have to ......

(unplug sound card - if its a plug in)
Remove the cables,check for model and make,download from net.
or
if sound on motherboard then download the model and make also.

You will have to load the downloaded drivers on to a disk.
2.update your device drivers and point the wizard at the disk,

Reboot and that should be it sorted,

Thanks and let me know the outcome,Cheers

Hi Jonathan,

Pls check if the cables are connected to the right port.
Also check the monitor volume settings.

Pls check with a set of powered speakers.

Pls run dxdiag from Run in Start menu if you are using windows.

Also you can check for any issued with the drivers or any driver updates.

Pls try a system restore also if none of the above steps work.
