    My computer is a hp pavilion a705w and i bought this pc from a friend. They said they had everything wiped off the computer. They said there was no sound on the computer at all. But all i needed to do was to download some software off the internet. I have searched and searched for the website but cannot find it. It says there is no sound device installed. I am completely lost with this and hopefully i cant fix it. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
It could be the sound drivers, that could be the cause of the issue. You can start with restoring your system to an earlier time. If that does not resolves the issue then check whether the driver is installed correctly, if not uninstall the driver from the device manager and reinstall it again. It could also be an issue with windows media player. You can also check to see if any other player would also give you the same result or if you do get sound using the other player. You can try realplayer as well.

Go to Windows Media Player and see if your songs you cannot find in there, in Media player you can find songs you downloaded in windows media player as Windows Media Player is your default player also any type of songs will be imported to Media Player automatically,
If not try downloading Realplayer basic or plus.

Sound distorted


This sounds like a codec problem. Check you have the latest codecs installed. I use KLcodec on my system. It is free and very effecient.

maybe the windows has this security issues. coz from my point of view windows vista is dedicated on security. so that's why you cannot rip most of the songs very well.

No sound...


open the control panel, system/device manager..look for the audio section(codecs) see if any of those are marked with a question mark or exclamation point. if they are, uninstall that item, then go to scan for hardware changes, under the Action tab.

may need to get new drivers for your HP first though..go here for those.
