Issue is that for sound the icon next to the clock states "No Audio Output Device is installed".
I have gone to the HP Website searched for the drivers there, even used Internet Explorer (you cant do it in firefox, that i have seen) did the automated system check, and used the driver from that page.
When driver the HP site was used, got error stating "no device for this driver located" which shouldnt be since the driver was supposed to be "designed" for this laptop series.
I have messed around a little but, the sound came back once, then went away on restart.
Tried again, computer restarted a few times, then computer sound has gone off again.
There is no Sound tree in the device manager, but was there when the sound was found.
I have also made sure the windows is updated.
