My HP laptop {HP Pavilion Series} has stopped producing sound. I was under iTunes one afternoon and i went under Google for a research paper. I soon noticed my iTunes music had stopped, i had a ton of plug-in crash errors {all was shock wave}, and my iTunes music would not even play. I dont know what to do, ive played around on control panel under sound and hardware and when i test it i get the message "failed to play test tone". Ive tried to update it, but im told ether it is up-to-date, or i dont have the correct requirements to update it.

Hi TheDarknight012,

The problem seems to be outside iTunes as you have already updated it and the issue didn't fix. Sometimes a corrupted audio driver can cause this problem. Try checking in other audio applications such as Windows Media Player. If there is no sound in other applications as well try updating the Audio Drivers.

Do reply with results.

Hi TheDarknight012,

From the Device Instance ID (FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_7605&SUBSYS_103C1671&REV_1001) that you gave, it shows that your computer has IDT High Definition Audio. You can try this driver:

https://download.cnet.com/IDT-High-Definition-Audio-CODEC/3000-2120_4-197119.html

Note: This 3rd party links is exclusively my suggestion based on the personal research and experience. Usage of this link is purely based on your discretion.

Also, you can find the driver from HP website.
