You only have HDMI audio (from the Video card) and not PC audio. I do not see a sound hardware driver installed. I see one generic, basic function Windows installed High Definition Audio but that's all. The actual sound hardware driver is not installed.

First step is to install the correct sound driver, if there is one for Win 7. This looks like an older PC and it may not be (fully) Windows 7 compatible. If this is the case you will have to install a Win 7 compatible sound card. If the sound hardware was Win 7 compatible, Windows would have installed the High Definition Audio driver for the PC's sound and you would have sound.

A comment, not related to your sound problem. With this old hardware and only 2GB of RAM and a 64 bit OS, I'm surprised this does much more than load the Operating System.

First, the 2GB of RAM is bare minimum. A 64 bit OS uses more of the available RAM than a 32 bit OS and thus less left for programs. It will work, how well it works is the issue.

Without the actual HP model number, I can't research if its compatible.

Things might change when you install service pack 1.

The drivers just dont show up on device manager after I install them.
By the way its not my first time with 64 bit win 7 or win 8 so I think its not a problem.

Sorry to be direct, but the specs look very limited. 2GB of RAM is max.

Reinstall (or install if you haven't) the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. Then see if the sound shows up.

Installed win 7 32 bit but I still have the same problem with the audio drivers not shwing up on device manager and no devices at Sounds>Playback.
