You are technically correct. Your laptop is not like a desktop, in that there is not a physical "card" that handles audio. There is no "card" that you can remove and replace. The components that go into the production of sound are built into the design of the motherboard. The term is "integrated", as in your sound card is integrated into the motherboard. Now, every laptop has an audio chipset integrated into the design of the unit. So, your laptop does have everything it needs to make sounds... it has an audio chipset, and it has speakers. This means that if you have an Operating System of some type AND you have the drivers installed that tell your operating system how to use your audio chipset, that you can indeed hear music come out of the speakers. Occasionally, Windows will automatically and incorrectly update audio drivers, making your sound stop working. Or, if you changed your Operating System and you did not install the correct audio drivers your sound would appear to stop working. So there are situations where your sound would stop working. So... if you are asking if this laptop has the potential for playing music even though you don't really understand what goes on within the casing, the answer is Yes... it can play songs even if you don't "think" it has a sound card. end of line
You will most likely will have to reinstall the OS window. Here is some information http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windo...
First, turn Caps Lock off! Try a different set of, known good, speakers or a headset. Check the volume setting to make sure nothing is turned down/muted. Look in device manager.. You will need to be logged on as an administrator in order to do this. Open Device Manager, click Start, and then click Control Panel. Double-click System. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. See if there's a warning triangle next to your sound driver. If that's the case, try rolling back/updating the driver (right click). If that fails or you don't have one to roll back - look on the manufacturer's site for the correct, updated, drivers for your OS/sound card, or use one of these generic ones. For XP... Download, install the Realtek AC'97 Driver, then re-start. http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-AC-97-D... For Vista/Win 7... Download, install the Realtek AC'97 Driver, then re-start. http://download.cnet.com/Realtek-AC-97-D... To install the drivers-unzip the downloaded file if necessary, double click 'Setup' and follow any prompts then re-start (turn off, then on). © arou42
If your system boots up while pressing the power button and the drive fails to load the operating system; then it is clearly a software issue, in which case you can use a Windows installation disc and try to repair the operating system. However, if the system powers up and it fails to detect the hard drive, you will need to go to the BIOS and check to see if that is the case by pressing F2 or DEL to get into the menu system. If it can't detect anything; then the drive itself is gone. In which case there are two things you can do; use a Phillips Head Screw driver and flip the notebook upside down and unscrew the hard drive plate that covers the drive and after you have carefully removed the screws. Unplug the connections connected to the drive. You can go to a computer swap meet or your local computer shop and buy a 2.5" external drive caddie which should either come with a USB cable and/or with a power adapter in which case you can plug the drive into it and go to any computer system to determine whether or not the computer system can detect the drive. Alternatively, a USB docking port can essentially do the same thing, it just means it is faster and less of a hassle. Since the 2.5" hard drive will normally use a SATA connection and a SATA power cable; you can also plug it into a desktop PC and try to boot with the system as a secondary hard drive. If the computer system can not detect the drive which ever method you've chosen; then you will know first hand that the drive itself is gone. And since the system is refurbished, you are going to have to go get another hard drive of a similar type or better and thus having to reinstall the operating system and your subsequent applications.
All laptops have some sort of intergrated sound card, look on the front or on the side for two or three color coded audio ports ,some are black, one is for speaker or headsets and the other is for the mic the third can be for aux .green for speakers,pink for mic some have icons above the port for the right hook up,plug your headsets into the right port for sound usually green.
Type MSCONFIG in the run command line after clicking on the start button. From there, click the startup tab. Uncheck all of the boxes for programs that you don't need to start with windows. That should help immensely. This way, you will not have to lose all of the programs/pictures/documents that you have.
