Hi, I'm new to this forum. Iv been having issues with windows 7 after i did a fresh install, it will not detect my audio speakers or my headphones. I was thinking that i might need to update the bios, but that seems to be impossible. Iv looked everywhere and cant find a update for it. Maybe you guys can help?

Any info would be nice. I'm probably just missing something and its right in front of me. 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

If it was't for your nice screen shots, I would have said uninstall the devce drivers, re-boot and reinstall them !  However, it may be that the default settings in your soundcard are pointing at the wrong things.

 

If you go to the right hand end of your task bar, you should find an icon for your soundcard - it may be in the hidden part, Just click on the double upward pointing arrow, then right click on the soundcard icon. From this, you should be able to get a screen that shows what inputs and outputs are active or connected. If your desired sound output is not pointing at your speakers, just change it to the output you want. That should activate your speakers, and your headphones should go with them.

 

One thought - is your headphone socket actually wired connected to the sound system ?

I'm pulling sound off the built in sound ports off my MOBO, So there is no setting like that. My GPU Has a setting in its Dashboard for Audio, but thats for the HDMI port. Iv cleaned the ports out with air and looked over the whole MOBO and i see no issues with it.. Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

Hi,

 

I'm out of the country at the moment and won't be back to my own computer until Monday and the wi-fi system I am guesting on gets switched off every night at 2300 local, but, here goes :

 

When you did the re-install, did you run the MOBO software disc to install the audio drivers ?  To my knowledge - and I am quite willing to be corrected - there is no way to stop audio comiing out of the MOBO connectors if the software drivers are installed and running, short of a broken motherboard. Try running the MOBO install disc and see if that does the trick.

The audio device reflected in your posted graphics...is strictly for HDMI.

 

You need to install the onboard audio drivers for your motherboard.

 

Board specs:  http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c00757531#N199

 

Audio drivers can be found on the Drivers CD which came with the system...or you can download the correct drivers for your system, after inputting correct system model data into the HP website.

From checking on the motherboard, it seems to have realtek audio ALC888 check here, A8M2N-LA (NodusM3)

 

So the appropriate driver should be here at Realtek High Definition Audio

 

Should download version R2.71 for the 32bit or 64bit respectively.

 

Hope that helps.

sorry, didn't notice the above reply Hamluis.

 

Hope the driver from realtek works Pizzaboxbill.

:thumbsup2: , I didn't want to suggest the Realtek website as a source because Realtek has a statement indicating that OEM system owners would probably be better served by using drivers supplied by the system manufacturer...but it's a valid alternative :).
