Compaq 610 - Sound issue

October 2016


I was watching a movie on my lCompaq 610 when the sound suddenly went down. I tried restarting without any success. I have windows 7 which have been working quite well with the laptop.


  • Uninstall the supplied sound card driver via add/remove programs, then reboot the laptop.
  • At startup, it will use a generic driver for the sound and it should work without any problem. Don't reinstall the Compaq Sound driver.
