Hello ra_wright,

Please check the following:
1.) you have keyboard volume up, down and mute buttons on your laptop they are usually Fn +PgUP or PgDn or Fn +End(which will mute your sound off). Otherwise you'll see the proper keys with a subtext in blue that is indiated by icons. As you use these keyboard keys you should see an onscreen display of the volume changing.

2.) If the above does not work look at the area next to your time of day display for a speaker icon and double click it. You should then see the volume sliders for all sound functions of your laptop. Check that the sliders are in the up position and the mute button is not check (other than your microphone).

3.) There is also a sound icon in Control Panel and this set of pages for it has further functions, such as selecting or de-selecting your sound card. You may need to review those too.

If you have external speakers attached checked that it is firmly plugged in by removing and reinserting and then (and I know this sound brutally simple but), see that they are plugged in and powered on. If they are powered by batteries check them too.

If you have found that this set of solutions I have offered has fixed your problem PLEASE rate this problem as Fixed by clicking on the fixed icon below.

If you have further questions, reply to the post and Ask Me. I'll be glad to help you through this.

Kind Regards,
Glenn

Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) no sound now


You need another sound system. If it's xp it is probably ac 97. However; go to windows update, make sure you have all of the updates. Then go to the control panel, device manager and look for a yellow question mark or a yellow exclamation mark, if there, right click and click update driver or click uninstall from the system, restart the computer and windows will look for the drivers, just follow on screen directions.

No sound whatsoever


Depending on the Windows version you have, you can try a few things, but start by checking the Device Manager to see if the sound device is installed and working.

Windows xp home edition reinstall


If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.

Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.

Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

Sony Vaio sound...


Adam,

The sony VAIO Pcv-j200 only runs with Windows 2000, windows Me and windows xp. The current operating system Vista on your computer right now will work but some of the features of it may not. The link below shows all the drivers for your unit for diffent operating systems (not vista). What you can try to do is to download the audio driver for windows xp
