I've been hearing some static when audio plays, not every time but occasionally. For example, when I click a hyperlink I'd sometimes hear the static, maybe 1/3 of the time. I decided to uninstall and reinstall the IDT driver.
I went to the Control Panel and uninstalled IDT Audio (I think it was called). After it was uninstalled the computer was silent, as I expected. Even though it didn't say to restart the computer I restarted anyway, just to be safe.
When the computer restarted I had sound again. Looking at the audio mixer it says I have a "High Definition Audio Device". Most importantly, I don't have the annoying static that was driving me crazy.
I'm inclined to not reinstall the IDT driver (just downloaded from HP). Is there any reason I need it if the Windows driver is providing good audio?
Have Laptop Compaq N610C,P4,512mb ram.windowsxp pro sp3.
Yesterday it was working.I did not install any new hardware or program.I usde headphone to listen music.Today When I played music,there is no sound.I checked the connections.uninstalled the driver and reinstalled the sound driver but no sound.I checked it has all properties on.no mute on.
I installed windows 7 on hp compaq nx9020 (pg751se) and lost my sound. On speaker icon it says no audio device installed. I've checked every where and cant find any sound driver on the laptop. Sound did work when windows xp was installed before windows 7.
Since Windows did an automatic update to my CompaqCQ58 laptop (running on Windows 8.1) on 16th August I've lost all sound.
I've read Mario's methods for correcting the fault, but my list of "Installed Updates" does not show KB2962407. There is an update on 16/8/14 numbered KB2962409. Is this the one I should uninstall and hide, or am I going to lose some other function of the laptop?
Surely I am not the only one affected by this glitch. Are HP bombarding Windows with demands for them to correct their fault, or are we all expected to repair our own machines!
I updated my laptop from windows 8 (when sound worked fine) to windows 8.1 where it doesn't. If I go to the control panel and unistall the realtek drivers, then re-install them the sound works, that is until I switch off (yes I know - don't switch off then ...
When the computer restarts there is no audio....again. the only way I have found to get it working is the uninstall - re-install of the drivers.
I have changed a setting on this computer and now my sound does not work properly. I dont know what got changed but the windows sound like the bell and the chime take about 10 seconds to play. i can not use windows media player is said the drived is out of date but I checked and the update said I have the most current software. I did try the windows trouble shooter but it couldnot find a problem. I do have beats audio on a dv7-6b63us.
Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.
I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media Player...no, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work. Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.
The sound on my HP Pavilion G6-1a19wm is not working. Sound "does" work when using the audio jack with external speakers. I have tried uninstalling the driver, updating the driver, microsoft fix-it, and troublshooting steps. audio device shows in device manager and is supposedly working properly, mute is "not' enabled. visually all audio related things suggest that the audio is fine and troubleshooting finds no problems..
I am using HP 2000-2313TU Notebook PC laptop with windows 8 64 bit operating system. From the last few days i am facing some problems in audio..when i am opening my laptop the sound system is working well...but when i am not continuing any audio application( busy in some other work..) and after sometime say 20-30minutes when i am opening any audio or video file it is running without any sound..when i am restarting my computer again audio device works...if i am not using the audio files after opening my computer also this problem happens after sometimes when i play some audio files.
I have replaced my laptop battery and the icon now indicates 100% available but plugged in charging.On removing the power lead the laptop immediately dies.Should I have done something about callibration when installing the battery?
i have no audio on my laptop. ive tried restarting, ive run my cleaners. im at a loss as to what to do next. i have an hp 2000 notebook with windows 8. my audio was working perfectly fine a couple days ago. i havn't made any changes to my computer. it just stopped working.
My hp laptop model no. is hp 650 and its windows 8 pro...few days back the system sound was off automatically..nor any app nor player was playing any sought of sound...then I configured speakers and tested..then it was alright but now again the same problem happen...i tried the same procedure as previous but it gives an error:
"this device is being played by some other application... please close data application".
But I have checked so many times...bt no other app is open...drivers are also working properly...my laptop is under warranty... I have tried to contact service center of hp but they put me on hold nd no takes the call. I am unable to identify the problem...with headphones also sound is not coming up...
I was watching something online when the sound became distorted (has happened before) so turned off G6 laptop and restatred worked well for 20 minutes and then it went all distorted again. Turned it off again and started it up again however this time the sound completely vanished. Tried iTunes, internet, and a movie on laptop and nothing is working anymore. Have checked all the easy sound things making sure I didn't turn it off but nope it all says device is working.
When I connect my laptop to my tv the sound does no come out the tv, but remains coming out the pc speakers. it is not a cable issue as my other hp laptop works fine. i can't find a setting to change it to hdmi audio output.
Ok, I havent had sound on my HP for 8 months. I have done all the troubleshooting I can and I really need to have sound on this PC. I have been working on this all week. Do I need to do a factory restore?? Model XY980UA#ABA, HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook.
