Does my compaq presario CQ62 havee a sound card?

No it has Integrated Audio.

The term Sound Card is a misnomer of sorts, that has been used by those who review computers, and those who have no idea of what they're talking about, and relay it to the general public.
Just like stating a Graphics Card.

It is a Sound Adapter Card, and a Graphics Adapter Card.
A circuit board with either an Audio chipset, or a graphics chipset soldered to it. (GPU)

A Sound Adapter Card, or a Graphics Adapter Card is removable.
Integrated Audio, or Integrated Graphics is not.

Integrated Audio is a audio chipset that is soldered to the motherboard. Not removable, or replaceable as an FRU by a general repair tech. (Field Replacement Unit)

[The chipset is soldered in a BGA. Ball Grid Array. Takes a BGA Reflow Machine)

Chip and Chipset are slang terms to represent I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The Audio chipset manufacturer is not stated, but it is probably an audio chipset manufactured by Conexant, or RealTek.

Aplogizes for the 'long winded dissertation', but I despise someone just stating, NO, and not explaining why.

Speakers are plugged in but there isn't any sound coming out of the speakers, yet i know the speakers work i tried them on my laptop

Things to check:
  1. Ensure you are plugging into the correct port. Some systems have both integrated audio and and expansion sound card. If it has both, the expansion card should be the port to connect the speakers. Generally all desktops use Green as the speaker jack color.
  2. Ensure the volume control is not muted. Set volume for 75%
  3. Ensure if the audio is integrated, that the audio is enabled in the BIOS
  4. in Control Panel, Sounds and Audio devices, make sure the sound card is the default playback device. Also ensure that Stereo desktop speakers are selected as the speaker tyoe.

No sound on my pc

Go to Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices
Ensure that sound card is the default playback and default recording device.
Also, if this is a Dimension 5100, then there is a possibility that the system has a upgrade sound card installed in a PCI expansion slot (Below the video card)
If the system has an expansion card, (Soundblaster) then the integrated on-board audio should be disabled in the BIOS (If integrated is on and an expansion card is installed, you get a conflict and no sound) Normally, if the system has an expansion card, the ports are covered with a black plastic cover. If the BIOS defaults are ever reset, then onboard audio needs to be disabled again.

My motherboard is mercury with an inbuilt soundcard. the soundcard is not working

Do you know for sure your speakers are working? Or is Windows saying there's no sound device? Does the Device Manager tree show any problems (! symbol) by sound hardware entries? Has the integrated sound been disabled in the BIOS settings?

Try downloading the sound drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website and reinstall. This often solves the problem.

If the integrated sound has failed, install a PCI sound card if there is an open slot on the board. Or you can also purchase a USB external sound card and plug it into an open USB port, and you don't even need to open the computer. Just be sure to disable the integrated sound in the motherboard BIOS setup.

Thanks for using Fixya! Hope your computer is talking again soon.

  2. Once the sound card has been determined, make sure that the master volume control is not MUTED and the WAVE audio is not MUTED
  3. Download and install the latest sound driver from

Graphics cards and sound cards


You don't need any special sound and graphics card to support AMD Athlon 1700+ Processor.

Just ensure you have a systemboard that support Socket 462 (also called Socket A). Sound and graphics support are generally a feature of the systemboard in use.
