I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have tried everything to fix my sound on my laptop. It stopped working last year and have not had time to troubleshoot til now. Here is my system info and what I have done so far:

HP Pavilion zx5040us
Mobile P4 2.80ghz
768MB Ram
Win XP SP2
Soundmax Integrated Digital Audio

I have done the following:
Updated Bios version
Updated Soundmax drivers (uninstalled, reinstalled)
Replaced the onboard speakers
Replaced the Upper Logic Audio Board

When the sound first started to go last year, I was able to hook up external speakers to the audio out line on the audio board and the sound worked intermittently. Now, I have no sound from speakers (onboard or external) or headphones. Device manager says the audio is working fine. All indicators on the system say the audio is working but i hear nothing. I did go to HP's online diagnostic tools' HP Instant Support Pro Edition. They did a diagnostic test on hardware components and came up with this error:

Test Failed. The system appears to have a problem in the sound output. (Audio diagnostic (SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio) (Code=4629).

I don't know what the code means.

This is my question, though, I can't seem to find the actual soundcard on the laptop. Is it a motherboard chip integrated into the motherboard and is it fixable or do I need a new motherboard? Please help. Any more info you need about my system, let me know. Thanks,

ok guys my computers motherboard and hard drive had to be replaced and so i was pretty much starting from scratch. Had everything installed by a 'techie' and so everything was fine. I found out my sound drivers were out of date and so i updated them.

Yesterday my sound players ie. Itunes, Windows Media Player suddenly stopped playing sound, games etc ie. World of Warcraft and website such as youtube still play sound though. When i try playing sound in WMP i get the error that my sound device isn't working, but my hardware manager says it is and WoW and websites say otherwise.

Hi. I have an HP Pavilion laptop about 18 months old running Windows 10.
The screen failed to work so I took it to a local repair shop and they said that the graphics chip had failed but they may be able to recover it if they 're-flow' the chip. They did warn that this may cause other issues if not successful.
I had them do the re-flow which cured the graphics fault but as a result the sound chip on the mother board blew and it would mean a new motherboard etc. to resolve.
I now have a laptop which works perfectly except for no sound. A quick diagnostic says there is no sound system connected even though everything is plugged in. Guess this is due to the blown chip.
Plugging in headphones or external speakers doesn't work.
My question is...anybody know a way around this so that I can get audio output? Can I add a separate or external sound system?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi, Sorry you're having problems. For Windows 7, try this:Log in to Skype. Click Tools near the top of the window, and select Options from the drop-down. Click Audio settings in the left pane. Under Speakers, you can:Use the Volume slider to adjust the volume.Click the down arrow in the drop-down to select the proper speakers.Test the speakers by clicking the little green arrow next to the Speakers drop-down.Click the Make a free test call link to make a test call.It may be a good idea to plug in a headset as a test to see if that works. You don't need a headset with a microphone; just use whatever headset you use to listen to your music on your iPod. The nice thing about using stereo headphones is that you can still speak through your computer's integrated microphone, but only you will hear your correspondent's responses, and there won't be as much feedback. Skype has a handy support document that might help you: I can't hear my friend... (Windows desktop) . And now for the awkward question: Is it possible that your friend has accidentally muted his/her microphone? Or is this happening with all of your calls?

I already tried contacting technical support, but I didn't get much help there, so maybe someone here can help. I have a brand new HP Pavilion g7-2270us laptop, and it makes an annoying click sound inside of it.  On average, I would say it makes this sound every 20 -30 seconds, but some times it does it more often or more spaced out.  It's just one click at a time, but it's irritating nonetheless.  I can't tell where it's coming from (sounds like the left side possibly), but I know it's not coming from the speakers and it's not from the disc drive (that makes a different sound). This is the second laptop of this model that I've had because the first one made this same noise.  I thought that returning it and getting a replacement would solve the problem, but this laptop is doing the same thing. Any ideas what this could be and what I could do to fix it?  Or is this a normal sound that I just need to get used to?

I bought a computer from someone else. So, I assume they wipe the system clean.(Reformatted the system). Or whatever it called.

At one point I have no sound. So, I went to Device Manager and this was listed under "Sound, games, video controllers".
-Audio Codecs
-Legacy Audio Drivers
-Legacy Video Capture Devices
-Media Control Devices
-Video Codecs

So, as reading other forums. I download Realtek High Definition Audio Driver, and went to Hp.com site to update driver based on my computer type.

But, my sound is low. I have speaker from another computer which is Hp 533w computer. It shouldn't matter what kind of speakers I have the volume shouldn't be low.

Is it my speaker (*** IT can't be speaker because volume in my headphones is low as well***) or It must be something I download incorrect or missing something to download?

Why does it say under control panel, sound. Now, at the top of Sound configuration box it says "Realtek HD Audio Rear Output"? I don't know what this is. As I had other computers in past it never said this up there.

Please help.

First, I am a novice user. I have a Hp Pavilion 9680C desktop (Win98SE).

The speakers are not working-in fact there is no sound at all coming from the computer (with or without speakers). The computer came with Polk audio speakers that mount on the side of the monitor. At first I thought they were not working but I removed them and plugged in a set of CREATIVE speakers but still no sound.

Any idea what the problem could be?

I checked for a conflict in the Device Manager and from everything I can tell there should be sound.

I have a HP Pavilion 500-314 that I purchased about a 3 weeks ago. Then suddenly around 1-2am this morning the sound goes out. I tried downloading audio drivers for my computer and re-installed them with no success. I did some googling and it appears a lot of people are having this issue. I came across a post in the forums for laptops talking about it is a windows update that is the cause of this. Problem is, the update that they are listing and saying to uninstall is an update that I never got. So then I checked all the cables going to the desktop speakers and my headphones and they all work. I tried rebooting several times, restarting the windows audio service, and even tried to do a system restore. Nothing seems to be working. I never wanted to switch to windows 8 because all I have been having is problems. But Microsoft knows best right? Just push crap on people that they don't even want and make it difficult for people to get a working OS. I am out of ideas to get the computer working the way it was.

Hi gottea, Please review the search results for your PC here. There are four chioces. I am linking you to the US model which may be incorrect. Here is an HP troubleshooting document. It may provide some additional tips for solving this problem. Have you tried installing IDT audio using HP's Recovery Manager? As you have done a factory restore this may not help. One thought would be if you are using an HDMI connection to your monitor. Windows may be setting the default audio to HDMI instead of IDT audio. You may have a hardware problem. This is a possibility based on the age of your PC (brand new!) and doing a factory recovery failed to correct the problem. Contact HP Support if the troubleshooting advice per the above document fails. Jaco ****I am not an HP employee**** Please give a" Kudos, Thumbs Up" if advice received is relevant or" Accept as Solution" to assist other forum users having a similar problem. HP Products:810-150se Desktop17t-j000 NotebookH8 1380t CTO Desktop560z Desktop

Still no solutions. When I hit Resolved a few days ago it was because I thought that HP had got the info and was going to resolve the problem.  Simple me.  Resolved means that HP doesn't have a problem anymore, not that the customer problem is resolved. The sound has gone on my laptop and a local computer shop has found that the audio output has a fault.Then HP says that the computer is out of warranty because the date of purchase is shown as 08/03/16, but the computer was bought in the States, so the date id August 3rd 2016. They asked a lot of questions and got the answers, but have not done anything to solve the warranty or the sound problem. Please get this sorted.

A:the sound has gone on my pavilion

Here at the Forum we have no direct access to warranty resources and can't honor a claim or put the warranty in force.  I am confused about the date of purchase. Isn't 08/03/16 August 3, 2016 in the U.S. and March 8, 2016 in Europe? So HP is reading it as a European date?  We are happy to assist with self-help ideas but cannot fix your laptop under warranty.

A:No sound from right headphone-hp pavilion dv6

Malakeh,

I have had this happen to me. I know of no software settings that can configure sound to come out of only the right or left side of a headphone, unless you are testing it for sound. Have you tried plugging in regular speakers? My guess is it would have the same result as the headphones. For me, the cause of this was the jack itself. You might have a rear and forward headphone port (green), so try them both to see if one or the other is working/not working. What I mean to say is, perhaps the jack itself is broken.

Hello, I am checking out a notebook computer for a friend...

He sent to a technician because his hard drive had crashed, don't know why he didn't send it to me in the first place.

The tech replaced it and installed Windows 7 32bit, but there was no sound, no webcam and the DVD drive was not visible in the OS. I tried to install the 32bit audio vista drivers from HP's website (tried both Conexant and Realtek, and the older ones also) but it kept giving me the error: "Driver installation failed: Could not find the device for this driver"

Since the computer had 4GB of memory, I reinstalled it with Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 64bit.
The reason for Vista is because I know I had experiences in the past where these machines are sensitive when it comes to drivers, especially the audio.

But I kept getting the same error, you do not even see the devices in the device manager.
I also installed the Microsoft UAA...
I still cannot see the DVD drive (you can eject the drive manually using the hardware button)
Also the webcam is also not recognized...
I even tried a hard reset (removed battery, held the power button for 30 secs.)

Now the the last tech. who checked the machine seemed to have opened it up, for what reason I do not know because the hard disks are accessibly in the back through a small panel.

Anyone has any ideas?

But the computer I am trying to get together is a sod on the sound front. I ripped out a phillips TV card which had several cables attached to a sound bank with different ports at the front of the comp. Which left me with a sound system on the motherboard. I attached an old pair of speakers, which I have had for years. Still working and its fine for this setup. I attached the speakers to the green out let and no sound. This motherboard has 6 colours orange (c/sub), grey (side), black (rear) and green for the sound and of course pink and blue (in). I searched around my large box of tricks (several boxes really and my wife is screaming about the mess) and didn't find a simple sound card. I have a small pair of speakers I attach on the laptop and they had no sound either. So need a fresh idea on what to do here. I haven't any other smallish computers for this person as space is at a premium. I shall of course ask around as you never know if things crop up. So guys a simple solution please:
32bit comp with 32bit Linux mint
1GB memory
2BG graphics card Gygabyte GV-R4650C-1GI

Working on a HP pavilion dv6130 - sound was working fine then the next day no sound - drivers seem to be installed okay (no ? or ! in device manager) but no sound from anything.

I tried drivers from HP with no results. I wouldn't think it was hardware, but i have no way of knowing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Hp Pavilion Dv6130 Lost Sound

Check the Sound devices in control panel.

I have a second driver installed for blue tooth speakers which I don't have. Its just installed so blue tooth works. Some times that driver will get switched with the appropriate sound driver.

My laptop is working fine except for no apparent reason, the sound has stopped working - internal as well as external speakers. It shows activities when I try to play any music or go to Control Panel->Sound and click on Test; however, there is no sound.

In Control->sound -> speakers (deafult) shows conexant high definition audio working. SPDIF Interface is not selected.

Can someone kindly help me on this and explain what is wrong and what I need to do to restore sound?

Regards,
