the sound that is coming out of the speakers is very low. I have tried another pc speakers on mine and its the same problem. And my speakers work fine on others. The speakers do have their own power supply. everything is at its max in the windows. Unstalling and reinstalling the realtek hight definition audio in my pavilion a1020n. Even updated it. Still doesn't work.

So will diasbling my realtek and buying a sound card correct this problem. Because it seems that i've tried everything and nothing works. Any suggestions?
I would greatly appreiciate your help.
Thanks

Well i looked at the specs for the Pavilion a1020n and it said the audio card is integrated. In device manger it says Realtek High Definition Audio.

Absolutely, and prices on good sound cards are fairly reasonable.
Wondering one thing though?
Do you have a "Sound Effects Manager" option in control panel?
If so, just for testing purposes, open it up and run across the settings.
Set sound effects to "none"
Set equalizer to 0db's across the board
Make sure speaker configuration match's your setup. If it doesn't, that may be your issue.
Run through speaker test.
And if you don't mind, post what you see on the "general" tab.

i went to sound manager and did all the above. Still no improvement. Since you said that a sound can correct this problem. Do you have any suggestions what sound card will work good with a pavilion a1020n. My budget is low. Thanks

Any pci sound card will work.
Basic 5.1 surround sound cards start around $30.00 US and go up from there.
If you're using a basic 2 or 3 speaker setup, that's really all you need.
I'm partial to the Turtle Beach line myself but Creative's Soundblaster is a good card and the more popular out of the two. Here's a couple links:

Turtle Beach
Creative

Here's an HP link to a step by step method of disabling your current audio and installing a new card if you need it:
HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Installing or Replacing a Sound Card

I'm still curious though. Did you lose you're onboard sound after any particular event such as a software install, upgrade, etc?

Well i actually bought a Radeon x1300 and i was fiddling around trying to put it in the PCI slot but it didn't fit. So then i purchased a Radeon 9250 and i got it to fit and work. But i wasn't sastifyed with it. So i just went back to my regular on board graphics. So i think something happened the fist time with the Radeon x1300. But everything in device manager said it was working propertly.
