Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook ?

No Sound on R40

\015 When plugged into a docking station there is sound. That leads me to believe that there is nothing wrong with the sound card just as device manager shows. But the speakers and headphone jack do not produce any sound from the laptop itself. When in system devices in the device manager the system speakers show no driver. I have tried every sound drive and still no luck. I went into bios but there is nothing pertaining to sound.\015

Answers :

Your system may be designed this way. But you can refer to its manuals or online support to find out whether your PC really supports audio. \015\012\015\012Another thing is that the socket in your laptop may have lost its connection to the motherboard.\015\012\015\012But first thing you should check is that whether your operating system detects any new hardware. If yes just find the driver for it.\015\012\015\012You can download drivers from the manufacturer's website.
