Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I cannot get any sound from my HPPavillion DV6910 laptop as of this morning. There is an X by the sound icon on my taskbar. I already paid someoone earlier today and they gave me a link to a download for a driver, but it did not work. The person was supposed to contact me via email and let me know how to reach them but never did, since I had to restart my computer after the download. Can you tell me what to try now? Anyone? Please help

How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar

If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

No sound icon on bar

I assume you refer to the loudspeaker icon on the taskbar. At least in winxp in a latitude 520, what works for me is
1. In Start'Settings'Control Panel, select Sounds and Audio Devices.
2. In the Volume tab, click the 'Place volume icon in the taskbar' check box.
That's it.

I have an HPPavillion dv6910 laptop. As of this AM, I no longer have any sound . There is an x next to the sound icon on my taskbar and it says "No Audio output device is installed" . It was...

First thing to try is to go to and click on the "Support and Drivers" section. Choose to download drivers and software in Step 1, then in Step 2 area, just type: Pavillion dv6910 and hit enter. Choose your OS and then hit the + beside the audio driver and click the Download. Save that to your desktop and open/run it when it's done. Hopefully this will fix that.

If that fails, then Click on Start, right click on My Computer (Or just computer if it's Vista or Win7, you didn't specify the Operating System you have) and left click on Properties. Click the hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. Delete all of the sound/game controllers there and reboot the system. when it comes back up, ignore the windows about installing the sound/game devices and just run the sound driver software you downloaded earlier to your desktop. When the install completes, reboot again and you should be fine.

Hope this helps! Remember to rate this advice pls. :)
