Sound does not work

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion p6-2290ea
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My sound does not work. I have done all the test requested of me yet it still does not work.

It looks like this computer does not have a separate sound card, instead it seems that the sound card is integrated onto the Motherboard.

If that is so, am I able to purchase a compatible sound card that inserts into the motherboard and if so can anyone let me know if and where I can get one.

Many thanks if anyone can help me with this.

Hi:

 

See if installing this W10 IDT audio driver and restarting the PC, resolves the problem.

Thanks very much for your help.

However that did not do the trick.either.

I suspect that I may have a fought within the computers integrated side card.

The question then seems to be whether its possibly to put in a new sound card on the motherboard?

I anyone those the answer please do let me know.

You're very welcome.

 

According to the parts list for your PC, it comes with the Joshua Intel H61 motherboard.

 

Here is a picture of the motherboard...

There are 3 PCIe x1 slots (the short black slots on the bottom left of the picture.

 

If any of those slots are free, you can install a PCIe x1 sound card.

 

I just installed this model in a Dell Optiplex 7050 desktop PC running W10 and it works fine.

W10 even installed the drivers automatically.

Rather than go to the cost of purchasing a new sound card I decided to seek advise from a phone call to the HP service.

The person did a great job and the issue was resolved.

Thanks again for your time.
