Bring up Device Manager from Control Panel. Then look for "Sound, video, and game controllers" and click on the "+" to expand the list of devices. You should have one listed for your sound device (might be listed as a Codec), so right-click on it and select "Enable".

If this doesn't work, we might have to re-enable them from the BIOS.

Let me know what happens.

To disable internal speaker in hp6000 pc


The internal speaker should be disabled when you plug in external speakers.
If not go to Start > Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices
> Pick a task.......>Change the speaker settings >Audio tab.

[ Note* An internal speaker can be used for the BIOS Beep Codes. If it is this speaker should not be disabled.
BIOS Beep Codes are the way the computer tells you something is wrong, and an area to look into, for it ]

Hi. i have an advent 7111 laptop. A while ago i must of accidently uninstalled my sound. i have no sound atall there isnt even a little speaker in the right bottom corner help me please!!!!!


I should go to Control Panel, select Sound and open the menu box.
If that is no use, it is dependant on OS, right hand mouse click on the desktop and select Sounds from there.
You are looking for the Mixing Desk or Sound Mixer to turn the volume back on.
Hope this helps.

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...


Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

I have lost all sound from my pc. All diagnostic tests show drivers are up to date and devices working properly but there is no sound!


If you know exactly when the sound went out...I would try a system restore. This is undo any software that has been installed or uninstalled but shouldn't affect any files you have created. To do this on windows go to start->all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore, and follow the directions on screen from there. Hope this works.

No sound from speakers with windows vista


Check to see if the cable has been connected from the CD drive to the Sound card or the mother board. You may also want to reload your CD drive software or make sure that the drivers are properly loaded.
