Question about HP Computers & Internet
Before spending any money, I have found from personal experience that It's often worth checking out something as simple as the volume control or mute keys. (Usually F6--F8). If this fails, check out sound manager or right click on any speaker Icons normally found bottom right on your screen and follow set up advice from there.
I run windows 7 also and I've found I usually get a result when I do this.

Sounds like you need to reinstall the sound driver, the should be located on your computer, or you can download then from IBM's website

Hope this helps, if so please rate accordingly.

I recomend you check the soundsettings for output devices in the controlpannel first, and try reinstalling the audio driver and updating the BIOS. If you want to be 100% sure its not a software problem you can also a full system recovery. You can start it by pressing F11 at the HP logo during boot.
But since this happend after you used the audio pass through board, that is the most likely cause. If you are comforteble opening the notebook, you can check this by disconnecting it. If the sound comes back on the internal speakers after disconecting it, it will need to be replaced.
Else, if the powerbutton does not light up(it should when you turn on the unit) it is a defectice PBB cable. But even if it lights up it doesnt rule out that the cable is defective. If the quickplay touchbuttons are sett to give a beep when pushed, you should check if they still do. if not it strengthens the probability of the defective cable.
This can also be a defective mainboard. But this is a very rare mainboard problem on these models.
If the unit is out of warranty and you want to replace the parts yourself, I can provide you partnumbers. But i will need the modelnummber form under the unit. It should be written on a small whtie lable and look something like this AA111BB#CCC.

There shouldn't be any issues with the router as a result of Windows 7. The Router does not interact with the computer in such a way as to cause incompatibility like with hardware or software.
That said, what could be causing issues may be out of date WiFi card drivers. Windows 7 has an incredible driver database and I have only come across a handful of things it doesn't detect. But sometimes even with the things it does pick up, a better driver is available.
You should run Windows Update by going to Start (), All Programs, and then Windows Update. If not already set up, you should click change settings on the left and make sure all recommended updates are received like important updates. This way you will get all updates available, including hardware updates.
If this does not seem to improve the situation I will be posting a How To on properly configuring your Netgear router. This will ensure your settings are set to their most optimal settings.
