Should I return my HP 500-214 due to squeaking?


No, not all new computers make this squeaking sound. It may be a defect of one of the internal components of the machine, and it may be present in all of those same models. You could try to replace it one more time, and then talk to Best Buy about using the gift card to buy a different computer model.

How does a hp pavilion a1514n desk top sound card look like and instaled


your model of PC doesn't have a sound card; the sound hardware is built onto the motherboard and cannot be removed. You can add a sound card n one of the additional PCI slots however, for example see
http://www.pixmania.co.uk/sound-card/asus-xonar-dg-5-1-sound-card-pci/08184127-a.html#description
Lots of pictures on this page
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=hp+sound+cards&_osacat=0&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xhp+sound+cards+pci&_nkw=hp+sound+cards+pci&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Ensure that any card is not too long or too high to fit in your particular PC
For instructions on fitting (physically) one of these cards see
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00311110.pdf
Look here
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=fitting+soundcard+to+desktop
for videos of the fitting procedure and even how to choose a card. Any of these will show the fitted sound card as well as how for a range of desktop PCs to do it.

Kind of sound cart for comuter HP


Determining which type of sound card


Users running Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, or XP


Microsoft Windows users can determine the sound card currently installed in their computer by following the below steps.


Click the start button and then click the "Programs"folder.

Next, click the "Accessories" and then the "System Information" folder.


Within the System Informationwindow, click the + symbol next to Components.

Click "Sound Device" (or "Multimedia" and then "Sound Device") and in the right-side of the window you should be able to locate complete information about the sound card.


Note: In some cases Microsoft Windows may install a compatible device to your sound card. Therefore, the sound card listed may not be the exact manufacturer or model installed in your computer.


Other methods of determining the sound card type


Another method of determining the sound card manufacturer or model is by opening the computer and physically looking at the sound card. Commonly the sound card manufacturer and model will be listed on the card.


hope this helps

I recently cleaned out my computer and purchased a new power supply and video card. Now my sound doesnt work and i think it might be a jumper or something on the motherboard. the computer tells me to plug...


It could be a jumper need to move or set a different place, but that sounds like it's the card not install properly. If the computer or motherboard not reconizing the sound card then it won't work don't care what you try to do!
Halla back @ me!

Hello,

I would recommend Nvidia graphics card.
It is one of the best, and compatible with your computer.
I would recommend one of the most recent models.
Check with your local computer shops and they will assist you in getting a good recent model.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

Were can i get a vidio card and sound card and ether card for a hp pavilion a305w


If you need drivers, they are available at the hp website, if your computer really doesn't have a sound card or a video card then you would need to buy them from a shop and install them inside the computer, one shop for example is www.newegg.com

If you have the devices then you need the drivers instead not something to put inside your computer.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=362754&os=228&

Drivers are available on the linked page above this text.

HP Pavilion 8860-sound card


this model of PC has an integrated sound card. this means it is located on the motherboard so you can't replace it. this could be a good thing for you since you can install pretty much any PCI sound card that you want. There are cheap ones and very expensive ones available. Depending what you use your PC for even a cheap one will work, such as if you just play CDs, internet radio etc.
The instructions to install a new sound card will be included with your card, but it is one of the simplest things to install. (open case, insert, close case, let windows install drivers.)
