Question about Computers & Internet

I have a 3 years old Compaq Presario 6608AU Notebook. The problem is my speakers. sometimes they work and some times they go dead. when they dont work, there appears a white cross in a red circle on the sound icon in task-bar. It doesn't even show and hardware related to sound in the device manager. How shall I resolve this problem ?

    But there are no options related to sound in device manager....
    When my speakers were working the option for Sound comes up. But when the speaker are dead, they don't appear.

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager any yellow? ! question marks or red x will tell you that you need to reinstall the driver/s
to do this right click on the ? x ! select reinstall driver
the drivers might have been corrupted by something or you might have got a virus run your antivrus program
as for the sound
control panel sounds and audio,volume you can adjust the volume or advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers or audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have selected the right speakers or control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to sound,video and game cotrollers could be a yellow question mark? right click to re-install drivers

    your sound card might not be seated properly or it might be faulty you could buy a portable usb sound card to get sound from your speakers before trying to fix/buy your sound card

    Is there a way where I can check my sound card after opening the laptop ?

    not sure if you can test if its faulty just make sure it has a secure seating

    also make sure there is no dust in the socket or on the sound card as dust will cause static and cause a computer lots of problems
    clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure there is no moisture in the air line

In the middle of doing a system recovery my compaq CQ50 froze up,I restarted my laptop and now it says no operating system found


CQ50-what? you left off the end number?
dont all COMPAQs do that, this old, sure. all do , those that dont are what we call Miracles of the Deity!
first do this with no battery, take out the huge battery that loves to short and overload all LT.
do so, ok , no cure there... if yes, BINGO>?
what's next.
well it not black screen , is it?, so screen works. Miracle 2.
the NO OS is NO LIE, it told you the truth but means
I cant FIND THE BOOT DRIVE< that is A FACT !
the HDD is dead or windows, dead, no OS STATED BY You. or....


or the coin cell is dead causing the boot device to be WRONG.
no PC this old has good coin cell., replace it.
if the BIOS pages how time and date wrong, COIN BAD.(RTC)
if the BIOS settings keep SCRAMBLING its BAD COIN TIME.
if the beep codes scream bad CMOS memory its COIN TIME.
the coin fails from 5 to 10 years, less if parked in the sun for 3y.

coin 101:

Before to start laptop appair the following error: 0270 real time clock error. save to disk file not found save to disk feature is disabled run phdisk for information.FILE:create new. ...


compaq is HP so best is to ask them, there, now here.
RTC error mean , the RTC coin cell is dead.
all PCs this old are dead battery ,
RTC= real time clock chip says IM DEAD, but is battery dead ,..

remove the coin cell, and put in a new one.
end story.
then set time .
best is to set time in BIOS setup. 1st.

this Compaq is 18 years old now. or 126 dog years.
id , push it off a cliff on the 4th July with fireworks. and all.
let me guess its XP the VIRUS magnet.
some this old are windows 98
a hopeless case there, no? no support, no books and no updates.
the books at HP are long gone
so now all books are , sold by horders. $$$
it can be costly and dangerous to deal with folks like that.

the book you lost , , the answer is on page 18
seen here
see coin, remove it and put in new one. end story.

Not Turn on


you should have changed the processor before only when the sound started.i think you will have to change your motherboard now as your laptop is not responding at all

so do not worry much,all you have to do is change the motherboard and it will be perfectly fine and do not worry much.Thanks

Laptop does not start


Hi,
The loud buzzing was most likely your CPU (processor) fan dying of bust bearings. The CPU is supposed to shut down your pc before it burns out but some intel processors no longer have this feature.
The first step is to find your laptop on the HP support website, and then look for the service manual. You'll need a small philips (crosshead) or posidrive screwdriver and a guitar pick (or similar)
You need to take out the fan, order a new one from ebay and replace. If that doesn't fix it, you need to do the same with the CPU.

HP Presario V3000 internal wireless card not recognized


what OS? (means operating system)? we cant guess it...
xp/vista/w7/w8/w10,? what?
is it same OS as day 1 new?
xp, does it have service pack 3 installed? if not, it wont work right.
ever.
if yes, XP did you install all drivers for this PC from HP.com
oops they are gone...
try to know that drivers for chips below the card must be good first.
3 years old to you?
it not a 3 year old model at all. its a dead product with a square screen,.'

its an old COMPAQ, 2006 , is my guess on DATE.
looks like it has VISTA.
Vista support ended this month
and support is gone to on V3000 at HP.
if you dig deep using HP, Google site searches some lingering elements remain.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01037981.pdf

like that .
the time to get DRIVER is before its 10 years old
HP, dumps them at 10, or soon after that.

find a newer lap top that has wide screen and upgraded
it give this to the goodwill. (in fact they have newer ones cheap)

it is a COMPAQ 2006 (HP bought them out LONG AGO)
