Not even some buzzing sound? You have to re-solder the contacts if that is the case.

    Are you willing to take it apart to have look at the solder contacts? Or best yet you can use external speakers. You will get a 2.1 for a rather cheap price say about 30$.

Hi,

Do you have the service manual?
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/su.../c01295079.pdf
If it is easy to open a panel or two to check the connections, I might do that. Check where the connections are in the manual. I was given a laptop the other day that had a broken touchpad. I was able to take off one panel and found the connector had popped out, 5 minute job. I replaced an LCD screen on another, that was quite a lot more work.

Your laptop appears to have Realtek Audio. I have it on my desktop computer and it has a lot of settings. I couldn't get my speakers to work because the Realtek Audio Manager was set to Digital output, I changed it to Speakers and they started working. Microphones, I have the choice of Front Mic, Microphone and Line in. They all have volume controls and mute buttons. Apart from Realtek settings, there is the Windows audio controls as well. You should have two icons in the Notification Tray, one for Realtek and another for Windows audio. (PS If you make changes in the settings and they don't work, go back immediately and change it back or you might start getting even more problems). Double-clicking the icons opens the controls, but right-clicking on them has settings as well (like for Devices).

You have a set of headphones with a microphone, did you install any software for that? That software might be clashing with the Realtek software. If you may have updated drivers for the audio from the Windows Update website, it might have scrambled the Realtek software. If I suspected software, I think I would uninstall any audio software in Programs and Features (Vista), download the Realtek drivers/software from HP and install that.

Also check in the BIOS. I have disabled my Digital output in the BIOS so that it won't show up as a device in the Realtek manager. Your BIOS might have speaker and microphone enable/disable settings. If your battery goes really flat it can upset the BIOS settings. Set the BIOS back to defaults (it might be F9).

Start from the hardware end or the software end and work through methodically, checking everything you can. Don't "jump around" testing here and there or you might overlook the cause. Thoroughly check each section as you go.


OR

It is probably not the cause, but I would get the drivers/software for the audio. If the correct drivers are not installed, it might cause problems. Check for any chipset driver updates as well.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...product=212728
Is the system a Compaq original installation? If it is, it should have an "audio manager" installed and that would mean the correct drivers as well.

Do you have any media players apart from WMP? I might suspect them, but check any settings they have.



Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

No sound coming out for my hartke amps?


Are the internal speakers properly connected via the rear-mounted 1/4 inch "Speaker Output" jack? If so and still no sound, try connecting a separate external speaker (floor monitor, pa cabinet) for a "low volume" test.

The OM says the internal speakers are 4 ohm so it's unlikely that a wiring problem with speaker connections would cause all four to stop working. With AC power disconnected from outlet check for an internal speaker protection fuse BUT be careful. Charged capacitors can hold a charge for weeks!!!

Speaker is not working properly , rattling noise coming


Can you hear any rattling inside if you shake the monitor? It can be blown speakers or they are being driven too hard, just want to make sure before taking it apart. Do not expect too much sound from monitor bulit-in speakers since they use very small speakers that sound like tin can for most application.

I stopped having sound coming from the speakers. I checked and we are not on mute, and the volume is turned up high.


Make sure all your connections are tight and you have power to your speakers...Then go Start>Control Panel>Sound and Hardware>Sound, after you are in here make sure that your speakers are selected as default device.
Hope this helps, pls rate

Can't get sound through speakers/headphones


You need to connect the speaker wire coming from the monitor to your PS3 if you want the sound to come out of the monitor speaker. Normally, you need an adapter for this.

Viewsonic Monitor sound problem


Hi check the sound cable hasn't fallen out or come loose from the back of the monitor. After this reinstall the drivers for the monitor you will be able to download them from viewsonic if still not working then the speaker jack or speakers are faulty.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
