All of a sudden I have no sound. I have RealTek AC97 sound driver as a part of my motherboard. I do NOT have a sound card. I go to the RealTek website to download a new driver & RealTek says to update thru HP because it's in the motherboard. Maybe I'm not in the right place, but HP says to go to RealTek. So I'm no where fast!

I've plugged & unplugged the speakers. I borrowed a set of speakers & they don't work on my system either. So I know its not the speakers!

I checked to make sure that the sound is not muted. I also checked to make sure the sound is activated, which is is. Any other suggestions?

Here is the link to the HP website for the realtek drivers. I would check device manager first before you installed it though. Right click on my computer>properties. Select the Hardware tab and goto device manager. You should be able to find the audio drivers in the list. If the driver has an X on it, then just right click and enable it. If it has a yellow ? then go ahead and install the driver. Hope this helps.

Good luck,
