If your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers or uninstall
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
make sure you have an earth ******** before touching any parts inside your computer
hope this helps

HP ProBook 4520s Sound Card Missing Stereo Mix! How to get it?


question #1 did you change the OS from new day 1,
for example upgrading to W10? if yes, HP does not support this.

forget DELL this has nothing to do at all with DELL ever.
Google can't fix machines of any kind, in fact google
gets you like 1 million guesses, or lies and all are at best worse than tossing a coin or guessing your self. a fact.
It is the Disinformation age, and gets worse every day.

what does work, is diagnoses not guessing or reading endless posts by others, most of which lack any facts worth knowing.
like yours what OS is there windows what????????
My first guess is the internal speakers are dead.
As are $1 earbuds dead.. as the next test.
why not tell the helper first, what you are attempting.
? sound tells me zero, tell what you are doing
like this. ( one guy cant watch movies online, 2nd cant play a local sound wave file or mp2 and guy 3 cant get windows sounds working. see?
DO BASICS first , first walk then run, see?
I go to control panel, and click sound
then make sure speakers is tuned on here, first.
then click SOUNDS.
then pick Asterisk, and the test button goes green below.
(this works from windows 3 to now)
if not green arrow that means the driver is missing. (or corrupted winds or virus infected)
if the green botton glow and click it and you hear sounds now
then the driver is working.
if this test passes, the we go to the next level of complexity
the sound player, must work (I use VLC and others)


now the driver, at HP, why not ask at HP and not fixya,
HP has support for you unstated OS.
this exact PC came with Linux or Windows
so my guess #1 is windows, sigh.
then guess #2 is windows 7 64bit
and I land here, in 5 seconds flat. amazing no?
the chip is IDT and is problematic

does device manager show errors in the sound chip?
if yes and you run w7 , all drivers are above,
even for XP and VISTA.
only.

try posting what PC ,ok you did,
the what OS you run, you did not.
then tell what you are attempting to do with sound.
lots of things do sound ,name one that fails. or all.

I recently purchased bose multimedia speakers. I can plug the iPhone into the control and the sound is phenomenal. When I plug the USB into my laptop (HP6535b) the speakers install, but the sound is...


xp was never designed to do that ever. my guess... and is true in vast cases with XP , XP is DEAD, as will be getting new drivers for new devices, see?
When I plug the USB what does that mean.

all i can tell as would HP, take that USB thing above
go the the makers web site, see that software, there,
do they have XP software, NO.
i bet they do not support XP

not only that all said was,.
bose multimedia speakers.

what does that mean>/ its non specific so is useless. input
the only word there good id BOSE(tm)
they make lots of things, most things do not run on any XP
unless real lucky,

my guesss is the BOSE(tm) has its own sound chip
and needs its own SOUND chip driver to work
and if even you had that chip driver,
XP would get real confused having 2 sound chips in one PC
try this , go to DM , device manager,
and turn off the normal sound chip from HP.
on windows 10 we click the task bar speaker and kill the onboard sound chip that way, letting head phones USB work.
or USB external devices that have, 2nd chip.
see? running 2 chips at same time (sound) is never going to work
like having 2 TV's playing same time, chaos.

what OS? windows, and What windows, XP?
HP sold it with 7 different OS, (xp to w7 ./32/64bit) and linux.
I cant know what you use for sound at all.
the PC has sound chip and 2 speakers and mic.,
external speakers, or sound buds, what? tell what you have first.
4510s tells little.
if you have U
SB headphones there, it WILL mess up.
USB adds a 2nd sound chip set and they clash with onboard set.
in fact buying new headphones with USB sound and boom mic built in
then going in to device manager and disabling the onboard sound
makes the head phones work real well.
its not metal bs. sorry. that is jive.

i the sound test fails, then it failing that you can be sure.

if no bud, or headphones of any kind
and only internal speaker ;.mic is used
then down load the drivers from HP for you sound
is that hard?

It is possible that the camera only runs on Windows 7. Re-upgrade to Windows 7. It is much better than XP anyway, and your computer is more than powerful enough to handle it.

sounds like you have built in speakers for your laptop?
you can try plugging in headphones in to the headphone jack on your laptop to see if you can hear any sound.
if you do then you can purchase a 2 speaker set from walmart or any electronics store and hook that up to your laptop for sound.

No sound from headphones. Speakers work. Win7


Please clarify, Where is the Headphones connected? Front or back? if you tried it on the Front port without success, Plug in the speaker jack to the port where you did connect the Headphone and verify it's working or not. You can also try the headphone on the port where the speaker is connected.

Awaiting.
