Install driver for ur sound card,
First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application > Services. Choose "Windows Audio" and set to Automatic and Start.
Now next you can do is
If you open control panel & click device manager the window that opens will show a list of all installed hardware. Look for anything with an exclamation mark beside it, or to do with sound. If you see anything, right click it, check it isn't Disabled then select "Properties." The next window should have some tabs along the top, the one you are looking for is "Driver," you should now see an "Update driver" button.

Problem: my hp laptop wont finish booting up. It seems like its gonna but it stops at screen that is blue and says password required. Hp Centario Xp or Linux unsure what OS its running Things I have...


The easiest fix for this is going to be reformatting the OS on the computer, from what it sounds your computer is simply well; locked. When something is locked you can fix this with a USB dongle with linux backtrack on it, and crack the password.

But that's not as easy as it sounds, so I'll stick with reformatting it would be the way to go as my answer. Sorry buddy.

My laptop speaker is not working! it started not working only after i reformat my laptop ..


Surely you do not have sound drivers installed on your computer. Google your computer model followed by "sound driver" and over the results, enter manufacturer's official website. Download the sound driver, intall it, and check the sound operation.

I just picked up a IBM T30 laptop. I reformatted the hard drive and installed XPPRO. Everything works fine except the sound. I cannot get the sound to work. I have tried everything I could find. Any ideas?


Hello there:
when you reformatted your laptop any of the drivers that originally came with the computer were removed. if you have internet connection i would go to the website of the manufacture of the computer and download the drivers for the soundcard and also the (vinal ac 97 combo pac) works good for most of the computers.
Also if you have your upddates turned on the updates can also help recover the lost drivers. ok these are just a few ideas that may help get you going if you need more please let me know cause there is still more i can show you ok?
best regards michael

I have no volume


Did you reformat the laptop? Or did you get the laptop with no sound? If you reformatted the laptop you probably used a resource CD of some sort, if not visit the laptops manufactures website and look for anything with Downloads / Drivers. check for sound drivers.

LAPTOP HAS LOST ITS SOUND VOLUME


If using Window, make sure the Audio service is enabled. If you are using Windows XP, right-click My Computer and click Manage. Expand the Services and Applications. Select Services, then locate and double-click Windows Audio. Set its Startup Type to Automatic, then click Ok. Restart the computerf.

Another thing you can do is to download the latest audio driver for your system and then make sure it is listed in the Device Manager without errors.

No sound after i reformat i lost my cd utility driver


Go to your device manager list, right-click my computer icon on the desktop then go to properties. Go to hardware tab, click device manager, go and click "sound and video controllers" to see if anything is with a yellow question mark, if there is you need to uninstall the one with the question mark, if not close that window and proceed to right-clicking the volume or speaker icon on your tray (near the system clock on the task bar), right-click and select "adjust audio properties", go to audio tab and select the right audio device from the list you can also see there other playback properties you can try and troubleshoot from there...
