Re: up grading speakers
This is a dedicated sound card to split the sound the way it should be heard, there are specific types of speaker systems you can use with this either a 2.1,5.1 or 7.1 set up, but dont just buy 8 (4pr) of normal speakers as it won't work, buy the 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1 speaker sytem.
Also the sound will only be reproduced in supported games and dvd movies, other than that you will only achieve normal stereo

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
If you can listen to sound from any other means, as you said via headphones, then the Audio drivers are working ok. The issue is with your Hardware unit; i.e Speakers (The In-built speakers).
I hope you are getting the picture.
Sound Card are very easy to install go to the following web page www.tigerdirect.com They will help you determine what sound card you want and the instructions will come with it it takes about 10 minutes at the most when you get sound card email me at [email protected] and I will help you if you need.
The new HP Windows 7 computer most likely already has a sound card built in. On the back of your computer you should find at least three 1/8" plugs for sound related use. If there is just three, one is for line-in, one is for line out (speaker connection), and the other is for the microphone. You would connect your old speakers to the line-out connection (usually a pale green color). If you have more connections, then you have a sound card that supports surround sound. You'll have to refer to the computer's documentation to determine which output to connect to.
The spec sheet for that model shows that there is a built in speaker. If you are hearing a beep or a bong or anything that is a one note sound when you delete a file, it's probably the reason. If you are comfortable enough, you can open the case and unplug the speaker wire from the motherboard. If it is hard wired to the motherboard, you can always use some wire cutters and cut ONLY the red and black wire that leads to the internal speaker. Please do this at your own risk and make sure you are taking all the precautions you can so you don't ruin your system.
If the sound works on you headphones the either your built-in speaker(s) is/are bad or more likely the headphone jack itself is broken and not making contact in the speaker position which is fairly common.
It's probably _not_ the soundcard (chipset), but the teeny little crummy speakers built into the T42. On a thin, light laptop the manufacturers have to make some compromises, and one of them is that they give you miniature speakers that aren't much good for music reproduction.
The fix: either uses earphones or plug in external speakers into the earphone jack. You can get pretty good, pretty cheap external speakers that give you fine sound.
your driver may not be installed properly. Install the driver properly otherwise check the connections and check the required configeration the speaker required it is in your PC. Hope you will get the sound.
