-I went to the Compaq site and downloaded the Conexant HD SmartAudio 221 driver but it says it can't download because there is no audio device for this driver found.
-I tried the Compaq website suggested solution which is going to Windows Audio under services.msc and making sure it is started and set to start automatically, this did not help.
-I tried a system restore and it didnt help
-The top suggestion online seemed to be going in to the control panel classic view and disabling then enabling the sound under device manager. However sound or anything similiar is not an option under device manager for me. When i go in to sound under control panel it just says "no audio devices are installed" and there is no option to enable/disable/update anything.
So if anyone has any idea on what i should do here, please help. Thanks in advance.
