Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

No sound My friend gave me thee PresarioV4000 but it has no audio sound. I went into my computer and then Audio, sound but it seems to need something installed.


Answers :

You have to install sound drivers for it. Go to Compaqs site, they should have drivers available (support maybe, then type your model number) and download all the audio drivers. Then check out Device Manager in the Control Panel and System and see that everything is recognized. If you dont know how to do this, you can just get all the basic drivers you need (some you can read descriptions and neglect, as they may be performance or business specific) Your friend probably reformatted the laptop without installing the drivers so more than likely your graphics are very low, you wont get wireless either etc etc... there should be no "unknown devices" listed, keep downloading all the drivers until the no more "Unknown Devices" come up. It can be a pain, but if you get a simple program like Norton Ghost, you can format and also upgrade hard drives and burn the "ghost" image to the new or recently formatted drive without the need for installing the drivers.
