How come the sound on my HP Pavilion just stopped working?

by on May 23, 2013

Q: I have an HP Pavilion DV6736nr laptop. I can’t figure out why my sound went out. It was working one day and the next just stopped. I installed Vista Business on it and it is a legitimate copy. I did all the updates for it and even tried installing the sound driver for it but still just says No Audio Output Device Installed. I can’t figure out why that is. PLEASE HELP!

    Make sure you’re downloading the correct drivers straight from HP for your laptop: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html

    If you’re still having trouble, I’ll need to know if you’re running 32bit Vista or 64bit Vista.

      Tried all the drivers on the website. Still don’t work. I’m running 32bit Vista
