Hi @jo1enee,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community

 

I understand you are facing an audio-related issue with your HP product. Not to worry I will help you to get a resolution to resolve the issue.

 

To assist better:

  • May I have the exact model name of the product? Refer to this document for steps to find the product details. Do not share any of your personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc.
  • From when did this issue begin?

While you respond to that please try the below steps:

Step 1: Right-click on the Start button in the taskbar area and then click Device Manager to open the same.

Step 3: You should now see your audio driver's name. Most likely you have Realtek High Definition Audio, Right-click on it and then click Uninstall device option.

Restart your PC once & it should auto-reinstall a working driver.
