Sound Missing

    I have seen a number of posts relating to missing sound but none that
    seem to relate directly to the problem I am having.

    My son just got a new HP desktop computer running W7. Everything
    appears to work except the sound. The speaker icon in the task bar has
    a red symbol next to it and if you highlight it you get a message that
    says there is no speaker attached to the system. I have tried a couple
    of different speakers that I know work but the system does not seem to
    recognize that there is any speaker attached.

    Any idea of how to trouble-shoot this would be appreciated.

    If it's a new machine and is behaving like this right out of the box, I
    would consider returning it for replacement.

    I had the same problem tried to find a cure via Device Manager, which
    seemed a logical way to to it.
    It didn't work, Device Manager told me all was well and I had the latest
    driver.

    It was finally fixed by reinstalling the Realtek (on-board Sound) from the
    motherboard disc.
    It first un-installs it, then re-installs it.
    All is well now.

    Hope this helps.

    If this is a new machine I would be calling the support line of the
    company that made it, or returning it to the store for an exchange.

    ``.It is possible to mute the sound from the keyboard. On mine it is in the
    extreme upper right corner. When sound is muted by this means, a red
    indicator appears adjacent to the sound icon in the Task Bar...give it a
    try.

    But would that cause the message that there is no speakers attached to
    the system? That's what I get if I hover the mouse over the speaker
    icon in the task bar.

    Same here (no speakers), but after re-installing the driver from the
    motherboard disc the speakers appeared and all is as it should be.
