XP audio codecs

I did a fresh install of XP Pro on my Compaq desktop and now I have no sound from my speakers. In Control Panel-Sounds/Audio Devices/Audio/Sound playback in the Default Device it states ' No default device selected'. I got no hardware errors during installation. On the Hardware tab there are no audio codecs listed. I have XP Pro on my laptop and followed along with the desktop to compare the two and on my laptop there is SigmaTel Hig Definition Audio CODEC and Audio Codecs listed in the Devices box. Is there a download avialable to fix this issue, I have not been able to find one so far. Any help is greatly appreciated. My email: [email protected]

If XP has not automatically loaded the sound drivers in instalation, then the sound chip on your motherboard is not one of the generic drivers loaded into XP so you will need to go to the compaq web site for the driver, but you have not posted the exact model, so go to the link below and look for your model and then download the drivers you need. http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.


Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

My compaq speakers are not working


If you are using Windows Xp ,then go to

Startmenu->Control panel->click:sound and audio devices
A window should open.
If you see anywhere in the window, written ,
"no audio devices installed",
then you need to install the sound driver .

Speakers wont work for my Hp dc5000


You will need to disable your pc speakers. If you are running Windows XP then you can do this through control panel - Sounds and audio devices. Your external speakers should be working then if you have the correct audio software for the motherboard.
