When upgrading your operating system like windows 7, some hardware driver will be outdated and cause not to ffunction properly. Solution is to download sound driver compatible with windows 7. Otherwise, it will not work properly as you mention. Try to find thru websearch by typing your laptop model number and its free.

    Try to use other computer to downloand and save it to external drive like USB flask disk and external HDD. then install in to your computer. Maybe some driver files are corrupt and preventing you to download the files directly onto your computer. I advise not to use messenger when downloading files. Download it directly to computer withourt using messenger. I advise thru websearch

The audio driver may be corrupted, try installing the audio driver again before you get the laptop repaired.
You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Webcam just gone from device manager i am using cq 40 presario 317 tu laptop. my imaging device option is not shown in device manager. As i add imagiing device option from add legacy hardware it tell that...

in build , does that mean its built in to the display bezel>?
came that way new.
this pC is relic, CQ40 is over 10 years old.
most this are are useless now. worth like $20 or less.
are you failing to say this is CQ40-317tu? clearly
that PC came with VISTA and nothing else ,ever.
so that tells me you put W7 on it with out HP support.
they do not have W7 for this PC< period.

so when you loaded w7, you then seen that cam is dead.
and you are connected to the web, and the windows 7 plug and play can not find the driver for said relic, camera chip
ever think that w7 does not support chip,. due to the maker of it does not exist now or never ever made a W7 driver ever,for it?

you used a MICROSOFT DISK to do this, so now its not working
due to not using HP disks, then wonder why it dont work.
well you did that, you are now on your own STEAM.
no support . from HP nor MS, if PNP fails !!!
if there is a cure, we do this, we use PCI scanner
to learn the true name of maker and chip using that tool.
then with that fact we go to there web page and look for a Windows 7 driver or that exact cam chip. if there is none
then go to the store and buy a new camera what has W7 support.

you did that when you LIFT HP support.
You will find other things bad tool.
but if all you do is email, it works.

the HP software is a bundled package of apps and drivers.
that work as a team.

microsoft does not do that.

here is what you lost

here is the PCI scanner free

seen here, and see the database to convert the codes to real names. scan it get the code ,look it up and if no longer in business
there is NO DRIVER. if you try to find drivers that do not exist
you will get A VIRUS, I PROMISE THAT, a 2017 horror of life....

I format my laptop due to viruses so i lost some drivers and i failed to find them. my laptop specification is toshiba equim A100 with intel celeron M inside. i need display drivers

Have you re-installed the operating system? If you're missing the display driver, the operating system such as Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 normally contains the drivers for the display.

Samsung Q35 notebook with Windows 7 , no sound and sony card read

Find the manufacturer of those devices and go to the manufacturer website and download the windows 7 drivers. There probabbly aren't any.
Windows 7 will use vista driver if upgrading, but not with fresh installs.
purchase driver magician and run the update feature.

Camera does not work

There won't be anything that Sony can do about that currently, it would seem that it will not work on Windows 7 due to a lack of drivers.
