HP LAPTOP SUDDENLY NO SOUND


Go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Sound, Manage Audio Devices - check that you indeed have an audio device installed (sometimes they disappear!). If not, go to HP.com and go to Support. Enter the information for your computer to find the device driver for YOUR computer and OS (operating system) and download and reinstall the proper driver to hopefully solve the situation.

My laptop (a Dell Latitude D530) has no sound. It was working, but all of a sudden, it stopped. Funnily enough, yesterday, the YouTube Geek Week advert came on, and there was audio. On other YouTube videos...


Jasmine,
Click the link below to download the sound drivers below and reinstall them into the system to see if they will resolve this issue.

Is it safe to go back to factory settings on my laptop


Absolutely! This is the way the computer came from the factory.

HOWEVER, be aware that;

1) Any programs you have downloaded, or installed, will be GONE.

2) Any documents you have downloaded, or made, will be GONE.

3) Any photos you have on the computer will be GONE.

4) Any videos you have on the computer will be GONE.

The Computer will go back to a time period BEFORE anything was installed, made, or downloaded, by you.

In this case you should copy all of your personal info off to disks, or flash drives, or an external harddrive.

Programs will have to be reinstalled.
You may also loose drivers.

Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
(Operating System)

If you loose networking (Internet), or audio (Sound), or what have you, it will be because the Drivers are lost.

(They are still there, but Windows has lost the address to them)

If so, post back on here, or post as a new problem, and we''l help you find the drivers you need, and info on how to download, AND install.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,

I got no audio device installed for my blue version notebook, so it can't play any sound.


No audio device can be due to
1.No audio driver installed.(Software Problem)
2.Audio driver installed in the system got corrupted.(Software Problem)
3.The port or the speaker has gone bad.(Hardware Problem)
Reinstalling the audio driver will fix 1 & 2 but if it doesnot then it is due to number 3 and needs to replace the hardware part.

    Audio/volume problem


    First, go to control panel - > Audio devices, then right-click any empty spot on the sound device, and show disabled or disconnected devices. If "Speakers" shows up, right-click and choose set as default (or something similiar). If this does not work, just reinstall your audio drivers. Right-click my computer -> Properties -> Hardware - > Device manager - > Sound, then find the sound cards manufacturer name, and right-click an press uninstall.
