Hi, i have an issue with my laptop where there is no sound at all. I'm thinking it must be due to some software corruption because i have updated the drivers and still nothing.

I don't have a windows disc it was my dads laptop but sadly he passed away.

 

I have just found a website called software geeks? has anyone used it? Is it safe?

Also I'm running windows 7 home premium should i stick to it?

 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance.

 

Alex :)

Hi Alex :welcome: to BleepingComputer

 

The computer most likely have a recovery partition on the HDD that can be used to reinstall Windows 7 like it was on first start after purchase. There is no need to buy a new license unless you want to install a different Windows edition or the latest Windows 10.

Do a search for the make and model for info on the recovery method.

Many times loss of sound is due to a faulty head phone port, try plugging in a pair see if you have sound through them.
