Try re installing the audio drivers. go to device manager, sounds and look to see if there a yellow exclamation point next to the sound card, Without knowing what kind of computer or laptop, you have , start there then go to the manufacture website and download drivers and software and get the sound card drivers
Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.
Welcome to FixYa! Based on the error you have received, this means that the cooling fan of your laptop needs to be cleaned and checked at. This is a common problem with any toshiba laptop. I suggest checking the heatsink of your laptop. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers or uninstall click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the (((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settingsthere also click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar if his does not fix the problem
have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer hope this helps
The serial number and Model numbers are on a sticker under the battery. Remove the battery and see what the model number is, then you can get the proper sound drivers. The HP website might also be able to auto detect what your laptop is. All Compaqs are actually HPs since HP owns the label.
When you try installing the sound driver what does it say???
You might have the wrong version of a sound driver. Drivers are usually made for particular platforms, for example [for intel processors and chipsets or AMD processors] the two are not swappeable, thus even if it says the driver is for the particular laptop, you might have a wrong processor...
Another option would be to try and install the driver using device manager just in case what you have are a series of non-executable files [which is seldom the case]
friend, It all depends on the money that you can spend. You can buy starting from low cost local brands to the high end BOSE speaker set. Sound is a very personal item. What I consider good may not be good enough for you. So, what I would suggest is you take the laptop to the store and fix it up for a live demonstration. And then wherever you feel the current, buy it.
