if you can post your motherboard details,we can check to see if you have onboard sound and find the latest drivers for you.

Run Belarc click here and post back the details under Main Circuit board.

Also post anything that is listed under Multimedia.

I take it that you have a HP Pavilion,can you post the model number please ?

Also check you have not muted the sound !

In your system tray,double click the speaker icon
Check the MUTE ALL box is not ticked ?
