Is your laptop a new one?if so, you might need to check those drivers CD's bundled in a package. Just bring in your CD drivers in your CD/DVD drive and follow these procedures.

Step 1. for XP OS: Click start button, right click my computer, select hardware tab, click for the device manager button

Stpe 2. Click for the sound, video game controllers,click for the computer icon with the tool tip text "scan for hardware changes"
it will then scan for the hardware and look for the necessary drivers from your CD.

Step 3. Follow the next message if it ask you to do so. If it requires re-start after the installation then do it..

i hope you can manage to follow this guide

It seems that the sound drivers on your system are missing.

If you have Windows XP
Go to start
Click on RUN
Type devmgmt.msc
On the device manager screen look for any yellow exclamation mark under other devices or under Sound, video and game controller
Right click on the device listed with yellow exclamation
Uninstall it
Reboot the computer
Go to hp's support website support.hp.com
Enter your Product number in the search box
select the Operating system
Select the Sound / Audio Driver and download it and save it on the desktop
once you download the correct driver just double click the icon on the desktop which is created for the newly downloaded driver software
Follow the onscreen instructions
You might need to reboot the computer to get sound.


P.S. if you are using Vista or Windows 7 you can get device manager by typing devmgmt.msc on start search

I'm having compaq presario A900 with Windows xp2003 laptop. When I try to install sound drive it is giving error msg like device driver not found..plz give solution for dis


Make sure your sound drivers are in fact there and are thew correct drivers. If in doubt, reinstall these drivers from your Restore disk. If you do not have this disk, look on the Compaq website to replace the disk, and then replace this defective driver. Oh --- when did your sounds last work?

Check the Compaq/HP WEB site - download the latest drivers for the Windows version you are using. Sometimes the latest one does not work but the previous one will work. (I've come across this problem before and it is not confined to Compaq/HP)
