If your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers.

Click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers make sure you have selected the

volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the speaker volume icon system select adjust volume.


Click start control panel sounds and audio volume advanced speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable).


The speaker plug/outlets is usually at the back of the computer or if its a laptop on the side.


You will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make

sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity.


Clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is

no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit.

Dust causes static to build up in a computer

Unable to access sound. I do not know what to do. It is a rental so I do not intend to buy but I would suggest to them. Thanks


Tell them to download, AND install, the proper Audio Driver, from the HP Support website.

Look at the back of the computer tower, or up on the side/top, for the white Service Tag.
Look for the Product Number. (To the right of P/N)

Go to HP Support, enter the Product Number. Then go to Drivers and Downloads on that computer's main page.

Look at the Audio driver/s.

1) IF more than one audio driver is listed on the driver download page, they need to go to Device Manager, and see what audio device manufacturer is listed.

Then match the audio device name to the audio driver name.

(Examples; RealTek, Creative, Intel, Conexant, and so on)

[ Device Manager:

WinXP:
Left-click on Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab >
Left-click on Device Manager.

Win Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows start button > Right-click on Computer > Left-click on Properties > Left-click on the Hardware tab > Left-click on Device Manager.

Click on the + sign to the left of Sound, video and game controllers.
In the list; do you see Realtek, or Creative, or Conexant, or Intel, listed?
Match the name up to the audio driver listed in HP Support ]

2) They also need to match the Operating System.

If the computer has Windows XP on it, (Any version, Home or Pro),
they need to download, AND install the audio driver for WinXP.

Same for Vista, and Win7.

One more variable to look at with the Operating System.
See what bit version it is.
Is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?

Need THE appropriate audio driver.

However, look close. Some drivers will work with both a 32-bit O/S, and a 64-bit O/S.
(O/S = Operating System )

A lot of times the file name does not list what Operating System, and bit version, it is for.

If you click on Download, a small window will come up on the right.
In the heading is a basic description of the file.

XPx86 means it's for a Windows XP operating system, that is 32-bit.
XPx64 means it is for a Windows XP operating system, that is 64-bit.

Vista x86? Vista 32-bit
Vista x64? Vista 64-bit

Same with Win7.

An example;

1) I have looked in Device Manager, and see the name Conexant listed in the list under Sound, video, and game controllers.

I know now that I am looking first of all, for an audio driver that has the name Conexant, in it.

2) I know that the computer has the Windows Vista operating system.

If I Left-click on the Windows start button, Right-click on Computer, then Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list, the System Properties window will state what bit the O/S is.

If it is a 64-bit O/S this will be stated.

If it is a 32-bit O/S this may not be stated. It is assumed unless 64-bit is stated, the O/S is a 32-bit operating system.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/32-bit_application

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit

64-bit is not stated. (x86 is 32-bit)
I now know the operating system is 32-bit.

I look through the audio files listed for a Conexant audio driver, that is for Windows Vista, and 32-bit. (x86)

Also; if there are audio drivers that match, but one has a newer date, use the one with the newer date.

If it is a rental computer, the rental company is the Administrator, and is the only one who can download, AND install, the audio driver.

IF, downloading AND installing the audio driver does NOT repair the audio problem, then the Integrated Audio is bad.

Another term used for Integrated Audio is OnBoard Audio.
ON the motherBOARD.
The audio chipset is soldered TO the motherboard.

This means the audio chipset soldered to the motherboard is bad.
Repair?
Install a sound card. (PCI version)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
To have me clarify/explain anything I have stated above, please post in a Comment.

[ Also include the computer manufacturer name, { Compaq? I do not want to assume }, and the Model Number. (Product Number for Compaq and HP )

It's in the white Service Tag on the back, or upper side, of a desktop computer tower.
Bottom of a laptop.
P/N = Product Number ]

I am using a non name brand computer running windows XP home edition i ahd a problem with sound...... tried to download the audio driver but I cant find it.


I usually use this software in this cases ..specially with non brand ..and identify the drivers and sometimes even get download on the list ..
download and install and when finish copy the key in the insert key ..and after that open the list and see what you have on your computer ..(it is pyramidal ...kinda like a device manager ..and it has details about the device ..
I suggest to identify all the devices and download drivers for them and keep them somewhere safe ..
here is the link ..
http://www.mediafire.com/?mezeoyv1z41
Another way to find out ..is to open it and read teh motherboard name ..and if the audio card is an on-board one just download all drivers for the motherboard ..and operation system in use ..
same for a pci card ..take a look and see how it is named and look for the driver by name ..If it is in warranty just use the software I suggested and will identify it right the way ..
Just pay attention in case you have an on board and a pci one ..s\download either both drivers or just the one you need..
Let me know if you have more misunderstandings ...and please rate my answer if it helps ..
