No sound

The designation -> AAC72418-109 - is also an Intel D865GVHZ motherboard,

Download AND install the Audio drivers, Bill.

Under the - Latest Downloads - heading, you can see the blue -
Automatically detect and update drivers and software.

IMHO you should MANUALLY download AND install.
This method works everytime.

On the Download Drivers page, you are required to choose your Operating System.

Since this wasn't stated, I'm going to choose Windows XP Home Edition for an example,

4 Drivers listed. Only ONE Audio driver;
Audio: Realtek AC97 Audio Driver

Click on the blue - Realtek AC97 Audio Driver

To the right of - Version - click on the blue -

Click in the empty circle to the left of -
I accept the license terms in the agreement

A small window will come up -
Opening AUD_ALLOS_5.10.0.6020_PV_RealtekAC97.exe
Click on Save File.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart ]

No Sound icon in your desktop system tray, at the bottom of the Windows screen?
Go to > Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech and Audio Devices, and click on it.

Click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
Under the blue subheading - Device volume, left-click in the small empty square box, to the left of -
Place volume icon in the taskbar.

Now click on Apply, then on OK.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[Still no? Then suggest your audio chipset on the motherboard, (Integrated Audio) is bad.
Purchase a 7.1 sound card that fits in a white PCI slot ]

You will need to visit the Compaq website and download the audio drivers for your computer. The audio drivers can also be found on the CD disk that came with your computer.
When on the Compaq website click their downloads/support button and search for the audio drivers using the model number of your computer.

Take care!

I wish, I can know the operating system installed on your computer and the exact error message that you are seeing on the screen. Anyway, try this.. first download and install this..

1. Realtek High Definition audio driver for windows xp and previous windows versions.

2. Realtek High Definition Audion Driver for Windows Vista 32

Download and install the drivers, restart your computer and try playing songs/movies etc.. using the Windows Media Player. It'll work fine.

Problem with sound after windows XP installation and realtek

Is that onboard sound device..?, it seems your sound device broken, if so you can't solve problem with installing driver, you must have PCI Sound Card to enable sound on your computer.

No sound after windows XP installation + realtek installation

check the series, is it really require realtek? because the driver doesn't depends on the windows XP, but the type, model and series of motherboard or chipset brand.... anyway, realtek doesnt written on the device manager, check to your control panel - sound and audio device, is all enabled?or does any volume elements are muted..

RealTek AC Audio97

hi sweets6;
did you uninstall the old drivers before you install the new one? try to un-install it first by right clicking the audio device then select un-install, restart, then install the driver, restart and try to see if it works.

let me know :)
