I had an all singing all dancing laptop (apparently) for Christmas.....only problem is it won't sing....on occasion when i boot up I have no audio...other times it's fine...I also notice when the audio is missing there is also an icon missing in the task bar...any suggestions gratefully recieved...

Hi have you tried system restore & failing that i should take it back to where you bought it from & tell them to sort it out seeing that you got it for xmas,you should not be having problems so soon

It could be the driver for the sound isnt very stable. Try the sound system manufacturers website, or the laptop manufacturers website to see if there are more up to date drivers available. There are usually FAQs there, if this is a common fault.

try removing the drivers for device if not try recovery as a final option may be mobo problem if that doesnt cure it when audio goes off see if other drivers are missing in device manager

I'm with carolanne here if it was a pressy for crimbo I would ask the person that got where they got it from and ask them to take it back and get it sorted you should not be having so much trouble so soon.

Thanks for all your responses, I will be returning the laptop I just didn't want to appear stupid, I thought it may have been something very simple that I was doing wrong, thanks again guys..
