Windows 7: Audio not working on HP Spectre XT 13-2003ef under Windows 7

12 Aug 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

Hello Jack

Actually, I was too quick to pull the trigger, as last night sound stopped working again.

I'm more and more convinced that there is a problem of cabling or loose connection at the bottom of it, and will have a look at the innards of the beast this evening.

On this note, do you think that if there was indeed a cabling/connection problem, which meant that the sound card was randomly appearing as uninstalled, this would prevent the IDT driver to install, as the device it refers to is not present in the laptop?

Cheers, Niccolò

That could very well be what is causing the problem. Open it and check all cabling (reseat - unplug then plug back in - audio cables).
