No sound coming out of Compaq PC speakers.

July 22, 2010 at 17:40:47
Specs: Windows 7
I checked the audio device and it says its working fine. I pluged the sockets in different holes but thats not working neither. Then i tried the main plug into a diferent one, still nothing happend.

I pluged in different speakers and still not getting sound. I checked to update drivers but they are alredy fully updated.

then i booted into safe mode and i removed it with a check mark to delete software. then i couldnt install the audio device cuz of the error. then i downloaded audio driver from real tek offical site and went to device manager and installed it by going other device -> multimedia audio controller and its still no help.

You did not give any real info on your hardware. We do not even know if your hardware is Win 7 compatible.

Normally, when you install Win 7, your audio drivers are not installed. The first time you visit Windows Update, they are installed if your audio chip is Win 7 compatible.

How many ports are on your tower for the speakers? If there are six then you may have Realtek HD sound which requires you to program the ports using their sound manager. Look in the tray by the clock for an Orange speaker icon. Open it and use the sound manager.

This entire answer may be out in left field because I am guessing, due to your lack of supporting information. It is late and I am off to bed.

OK, it doesn't appear that you have HD sound. Most likely your problem is that the settings for sound are muted. There will be a box with a check in it. You click on the box to remove the check.

Look for a speaker icon by the clock to access the settings. Or go to control panel> sound.

If that isn't the problem then you may need to install some drivers, including the sound driver. Go to the HP site and enter your model number or service tag to locate the correct drivers. Start at the link below.

This post is pretty funny.

What did you do?
1- Did you do a fresh install on a PC that origionally had windows xp or vista? Or did you do an upgrade?

2- Did you check with the Windows 7 advisor:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...
to see if your PC was compatible?
3- Did your PC come with windows 7 on it?

In that case you can download the XP sound driver to your desktop and then right click and then run as administrator.
It that doesn't get it to work, then right click on the icon once again and choose compatibility mode, then run it in XP mode and it should work for you.

Ok, I found two different computers with that model number. Neither one has Windows 7 drivers. So here is what you need to do. Download a program called SIW and use it to see what sound chip is in your computer. Post back here with that information and maybe we can find a sound driver that works.

Get SIW at the link below.

I don't know what to tell you. Your on board sound may be dead.

If you have any listings for sound in Device manager I suggest you delete them and reboot.

You could also try looking while in Safe Mode by tapping F8 at start up.

If we personally had the PC's in front of us they would be long fixed already.

Noob, do you know you can edit your own responses. All but the first one. Look for the word edit or an icon at the extreme upper right corner.

Try unplugging your speakers and rebooting. I can't figure why your sound would come and go yet it doesn't show in Device manager and Intel driver update can't find the device either.

Either it IS disabled in the BIOS, it is damaged, or you are not seeing it.
