    When i recently purchased my HP laptop the sound worked fine but soon after my sound completely stopped working. Under the sound devices menu it says there is no sound device connected and when i attempt to play music under windows media player it says again that no sound devices are found. It's and altec lansing sound system and the headphones don't work either. Any ideas?

    go to system properties the click on the hardware tab make sure its showing up there first if its not then you need to right click on my computer on that same page and tell it to search for hardware changes. then try and update the drivers for that hardware. sometimes they will quit when a update have been installed dont know why that is yet. but another thing you can probably do is if you still have the disks that came with that computer is load the drives disk for that computer and uninstall and reinstall the sound card drivers.

    You need to reinstall the audio driver most likely.
