    Hi....I have an HP a6300f w/ Vista home premium (x32). I was using it in the morning and everything was fine. Later in the day- no sound. When I hit the sound icon in the lower right corner I can see the sound moving up and down in the vertical bar. I've checked the drivers and they say they are working fine. I put the headphones in the jack in the front and no go. I'm not a computer guru or anything like it. Is there a part inside that I can change or check to fix this problem. I've read about sound cards and wonder if that could be the problem.
    I'd like to edit this post for the following reason: After posting the thread, the next thing below, an answer I thought, was a seeming fix titled "audio-driver-boost "or something quite similar. So after downloading it and finding that it was $30, I went ahead anyway thinking the problem would be solved. No such luck. It had nothing to do with the sound and had everything to do with a system scan and so-called fix of all the problems it said my system had. Well, I have Norton and I know I did not have all the malware and viruses it said my computer had. I guess it was my fault for not reading that it was simply a "google ad". As I said above, I'm not a guru or even remotely close. Any way, after downloading it I still have no sound. Lucky that it had a 30 day money back guarantee. So after un-installing it, and missing at least one icon on my desktop, I've learned a lesson. Maybe these ads shouldn't look like answers to posts.
