Windows 7: Sound not working?

Windows 7
Sound not working?

Hello, I have asked these forums for help many times already however my sound is not working and is causing flash multimedia to become choppy along with not playing any sound, such as the start up jingle will not play.

I would appreciate some help with this problem. Neither Youtube nor Pandora Internet Radio ( [very cool I suggest checking it out]) are working.
Thank you for your help.

Hi Matt,

To help us better diagnose the problem, it would be great if you could fill in your system specs in your profile and please add more description of the issue, like what drivers have you installed, did you install additional codecs.

Windows 7 Build 7048 x64

Here's the exact link for your product at HP Support Site - Software & Drivers

I have a few suggestions for you to consider;
1. Please use the official build 7000, if possible.
2. From the download list, upgrade your BIOS first
3. Download the audio driver
4. Uninstall the current audio driver
5. Install the downloaded driver
6. Restart

Now, if the above steps still doesn't get your sound going, check this post - Windows 7 Driver solution

Let us know how it turns out

Windows 7

Hello I have also an IBM Z60M model 2529-FKG and I am facing also problems with no sound and no wifi since I have installed windows 7. I treid to re-install windows XP but both (sound and wifi) were still not working anymore.
I went to Lenovo support but did not find any updates regarding Windows 7... I went into my Bios settings, everything looks OK => Wifi is enabled.
I was thinking using same drivers analyzing tools but they all require an internet connexion...

Thanks for your kind advises

Sound not working on Windows 7

I went to Lenovo site and downloaded the XP audio driver.
That worked for me on Windows 7.
I guess Microsoft is providing a basic Windows 7 and is letting the manufacturers provide specific drivers for their systems.
Since the Z systems are no longer supported, we are stuck with XP drivers.
But, like i said, the XP audio driver worked for me.

"audio services not running" errror
