HP is a pioneer in computers and laptop and one of the biggest manufactures in the world. By the time, the company releases many versions of laptop and faces controversies over it sound. Since the launch of HP pavilion laptop series, the problem continues, that leads to unsatisfactory customers. However, not all problems are manufacturing default; a little knowledge about its setting can resolve this quickly.
Firstly, make sure its sound is turned on, sometimes, we hit the mute button and expect for sound to be aired. Open audio- device center and make sure the speaker are turned on, or the applications which are playing video/audio files is up to date.
Check on the sound drivers, if they are functioning properly, click “start” and get into the control panel and then computer management to device manager. Locate sound management and video drivers, right click on the sound device and open properties, under the driver tab, you should able to read what driver is installed for your card or whether it functions properly.
Sometimes, external hardware creates the problem too, check if headphone jack works, if there is no sound coming out from your speaker, may be there might be the issue with a speaker or in a wire. In this case, try another speaker or headphone, plug out and again plug into your system. If still it doesn’t work, get a new speaker.
If still you find a problem after assessing everything, update sound drivers again, even if it says “ working properly” sometimes, it prompt a message but doesn’t work. Recover and Re-install HP laptop driver to confirm.
