Re: why wont my sound work?????

Hi,

 

Can you post back with the following.

 

1.  The full Model No. and Product No. of the notebook ( from the service tag underneath your notebook ) - see Here for a further explanation.

 

2.  The full version of the operating system you are using ( ie Windows 7 32bit ).

 

3.  Even though the buttons don't work, do you still have sound?

 

Regards,

Ref> My music won't work

Just bought a new series G HP laptop.  When I insert music cd, I get nothing, but the pre-installed music works.  Any ideas please?

Re: Ref> My music won't work

@billcul,

 

First, try the automated fixit from Microsoft on the link below.

 

Windows 7

 

Vista

 

Check if the drive will now play a music CD.

 

If it still doesn't work, click the Start Menu, open All Programs, open Accessories, right click the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'.  In to the prompt type the following command and hit enter.

 

sfc /scannow                 ( note that there is a space between sfc and the / )

 

Let the process complete, then type exit and hit enter. 

 

Next, click the Start Menu, open the Control Panel and click on Device Manager.  Next click to open DVD/CD-ROM Drives.  Right click the drive and select uninstall.  Do not delete drivers if asked.  When the device has uninstalled click on the 'Scan for Hardware Changes' icon ( usually just below Help on the toolbar ).  Let windows reinstall the drive and see if it now plays a CD.



Regards,
