Default No Sound

Pavilion p6241F Desktop

No sound bottom right system tray show red x next to speaker, in device manager high Def audio is in no mans land.
I got driver from HP but noticed it was just a patch to make headset work when HDMI is used, no other audio driver.
I found this, but still not working

Initially internet was not working and Customer tried to install a 3com network card, win 7, 64 bit could not find driver for it, as it turned out his router was defective, new router internet works
I wonder if putting in the 3com caused it, its out now?
He did a bunch of system restores

I have a feeling I am going to end up nuking this, I already spent 90 mins

Can't have been the NIC, but could be damage done by owner while installing NIC. If this is a card (PCI e) I think you can go into device manager and uninstall the device from the list. Then shut down and reboot which forces windows to look for and install a driver as if it were new. If its onboard graphics, you gotta get the driver from hp or the audio controller manufacturer and reload it.

Its onboard sound Pretty sure its a realtec

There is one pci slot I could put in a audio card, turn off onboard in bios
I have noticed lots of old hardware like sound blaster does not work in win7

Thanks for the input I will try these next time I see client
He is in no hurry to have sound fixed, busy doing his income tax at the moment.

I got computer back today
I installed original sound driver still not working
When I spend over 3 hours trying to fix sound you know something is wrong

I thought either with all the system restores or a hardware problem
I plugged in one of my HD and clean installed win7 still no sound
I disabled the sound in bios and put in a pci audio card and connected old HD now everything is working
Good job I didnít nuke his HD

Next tiem if your tryign to narrow down if its a driver issue or not, try a linux live disk.
I liek Knoppiz for this, but almost any will work.

If it works in linux, its not a hardware problem...
