It's possible your volume has been muted. Look down where your clock is, if there's a small speaker icon, click it once. A menu will pop up with the volume controls, and if the "mute" box is checked all you have to do is uncheck it. If the slider is at the bottom of the box, slide it up until you have sound.

If there is no speaker icon, do this: Click Start. Click Control Panel. Double-click Sounds and Audio Devices. This will bring up the sound control, and you need to check the box beside "Place volume icon in the taskbar". Also, there's an option to mute the volume above that; uncheck the box if it's already checked. This will keep the speaker icon down by your clock so you can adjust the volume anytime.

If this doesn't solve your problem, check that your speakers are plugged into the right hole in the back of your PC (not in the microphone jack). There will be little pictures beside each of the jacks so you know which is which. And if your speakers themselves have volume knobs/buttons, make sure they're turned up.

If none of this is helping you, your sound card may have come loose or become defective, so you should have a professional inspect it and possibly replace it. But it's very, very likely that your volume is muted or your speakers are unplugged. You can try using headphones if you think your speakers may be defective!

Hope this helps!

My microphone will not working


Make sure you have the microphone checked as a recording device in the Auido Sound Properties. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Sound or Audio and look through it to make sure the Microphone is selected as a recording device, that the volume is up and that the microphone is not muted.

You can also click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time to get to the Audio Sound properties.

There might be a way of testing the recording device by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder.

If all fails try downloading and reinstalling the Audio Drivers.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "CompaqSupport" or "HP Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Audio drivers.

Your computer is not POSTing, the best solution is to get warranty support on it.

The other option is to take it to a computer technician and he/she will diagnose the faulty component. They have access to many computer components and can determine the fault by a process of elimination.

I think that the issue could be with the Sound drivers you have on your system. Click here and goto Audio Section to download the Realtek Audio Drivers and Microsoft UAA Patch for HP Compaq DX2300 from HP Official Support Site and update the drivers.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

sounds like the disk - not the recorder - - try cleaning the disk with windex -
also - try removing the DVD player from the list of divices -
go to divice manager - look for the DVD player - recorder - etc - - and select REMOVE - this will force the pc to reload the drivers for your unit.

If it's a USB adapter, the cable is just a USB extension cable, so that you can move the adapter around for best signal strength without having to move the whole computer.

Remove the phone line, because he no longer needs it to connect to the internet.

Just let Windows load the drivers it needs for the adapter (use the CD that came with it if the computer asks for it).
