    I have an interesting problem with my new laptop. I hear sound from the speakers when Skype starts up and I can get sound out of the headphone jack but I get no basic sound when listening to MP3s, YouTube videos. My laptop is a work one and I have no admin rights to make any major changes. I am running Windows 7. I have been into the Control Panel and Sounds area and cannot see anywhere that I may have the sound down. The laptop is not muted. The sound was working when I first got the laptop.:confused:

    We had the same problem when using the native microsoft driver (not everything works).
    You need the HP sound driver.
