I have a HP DV6700 laptop which is 4 years old now and over the years kept losing sound but after a update or wait of a few days would fix it's self.

But a few months ago lost sound for good no amounts of updates or driver updates makes any differents.

But I can get sound if I plug in my earphones.

Hope someone out there has some good ideas.

I guess you must be on Vista. I have 3 places on my Compaq.

Start Search 'Volume' (Windows Volume Mixer)

Start Search 'Audio' (IDT Audio Control Panel/Graphic Equaliser)

Start Search 'Sound' (Control Panel Sound)

See what comes up and nothing muted.

Or you could uninstall driver from Device Manager and let Windows re-install on reboot.

Hi there,

Have tried the above and just uninstalled Device Manager but still no sound.

Forgot to say using windows 7.

Thanks

Steve

Sorry, that's me out of ideas then.
