if it is a windows 10 hp laptop than i think you should follow the steps that i told you just remove the old sound driver and restart the computer and update the driver check the playback device for more support contact hp http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/supp... and make sure you have your windows updated and also check the driver that has been recent update . uninstall some critical updates can also help you . thanks

The same thing happened to me where my top row keys wouldn't function, including the volume and brightness keys. I tried the shut down process, and it didn't work. When I checked settings and went to keyboard, I realized I had pressed "Treat top-row keys as function keys." After I unchecked it, all the keys worked again.

oml thank you so much for this! I checked settings and I didn't see the option "Treat top-row keys as function keys" and I got so annoyed but then I checked it again and saw the option. I said "Oml thank god." I am only 10 years old and I thought I broke my chromebook and my parents would have been so mad if I did, but thanks to you I realized I didn't. Thank you so much :)

Thanks so much...yep same thing happened to me...would never have figured it out without you. Thanks again!

If you are using a laptop computer with no external speakers connected, make sure the volume is turned up by using controls on the keyboard. They may buttons (as shown in the image to the right), or a secondary function of another key; generally indicated with blue text and activated by holding the Fn key at the same time.

No sound could be several things:

First: Check that the earphone/external plug is fully plugged in. Then go to the lower right hand corner, to the volume control and click on the arrow > and make sure that your device (headphones etc) is selected. If it just says input | output, make sure your Chromebook is charged. My audio buttons quit working and the volume bar stays to the left when my battery gets too low. Charge it up and then do a browser reset and a hard reset. (to do the browser reset, click the three bars in the upper right hand corner, go to settings>advanced settings >browser reset (at the bottom). Then hold the refresh button (looks like a circle with an arrow, usually the F3) and the power. This generally does the trick for me.

Thank you. Holding down the refresh button and the power button did the trick for me. Thank you for your help. None of the other ones worked for me!

my chrome book sound was not working when I was in my account but I signed into guest and the sound worked probably because I installed a chrome app that did that.

Click on your settings. Next to the adjustable volume you might see a pair of earbuds. Click on the earbuds and go to the output section. Finally click speaker> i hope this helped ;)

Go to the bottom right of your screen and click the section where it has your profile picture. You will see a variety of options, but on the second on up there is a sound bar. Click on the right arrow next to it, and choose " Speaker (Internal) " And "Microphone (Internal) "

Whenever you are going through Lenovo laptop no sound issue. it can be due to several reasons.

  1. Driver issue.
  2. Settings issue.
  3. So first of all, you should check the mute functions, ensure that you have not muted the sound. in such a case, you need to unmute the computer.
  4. If it still does not work, you need to uninstall the audio driver and follow the instructions to fix the problem.
  5. How to fix Lenovo laptop no sound problem.
