Re: Compaq sound trouble
Try and change the drivers for your sound update them then see if it improves. If that dont work the only easy solution for you ie; if you dont want to get inside it and check the sound system or replace it is to buy those external speakers and use them.

You may have muted the sound. Go into Control Panel and click on Sound. You can see if the sound is muted, and can increase the volume, if needed. You will also need to decide it you want the sound sent to speakers or headset there, and which sound system you are using.
Go to control panel - sound and audio device and check whether you can access the sound settings or not. If you can't, please let me know the operating system it is running, i'll assist you further.
If there's no problem with the settings, check whether it's muted or not and try using another headset or speaker.
Thanks for using FixYa.
Well that could be a couple things, the sound is turned off. Check the volume control, or make sure the laptop isn't muted. It's usually a function key and one of the volume icons on the keyboard. Lastly it may be a corrupted sound driver. Reinstall the audio/sound driver by visiting HP.com and downloading the driver from the support section. Best of luck.
Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double click the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and the Volume bar is at least 1/2 way on the Volume tab. Also click the Speaker Volume tab and adjust the sound there as well if needed. You might also want to check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" icon so you can easily adjust the sound settings next time.
If you are using xp, try going to the control panel, sound and audio devices, click on audio tab.
to check the mic settings, click on the volume tab under the sound recording sections. Make sure that the mic is selected and the volume turned up. It may be working only to record, not to hearback without recording...so you may have to actually be recording or talking to someone to know if its workings.
To check the sound, check to see if your audio device is selected under "sound playback" section...and make sure that all channels are unmuted and turned up. you may also have to check the volume control on the laptop (actual buttons on the pc) if there are any, and make sure that the volume is up and unmuted there also.
Hope this helps.
well, it is a sub problem, if you has warranty, use the RMS system, or change the sub. If has internal schematics, you can repair it, yourself, it is a resistant or some boards have a FUSE inside.
