Hi there
Laptops work fine on AC power only and won't bother it at all, just make sure you do have charge in the battery and that you don't leave it turned on while you go out or to bed as a power surge could knock it out altogether

Good luck

Try checking your device manager to make sure that your sound card is still functioning, if it is not it will have a yellow triangle with an explanation mark beside it. If it is not functioning simply reinstall the drivers from hp's website, or delete the driver and reset your computer. Once you have established that your device is properly working, try plugging in some earphones to see if they work. If they do then you likely have a problem with your speekers. If not make sure that your speakers are not muted in the bottom right corner of your task bar (the little speaker icon).

Mike:   Look in your manual to see how to get to the BIOS setup screen. Find the BIOS shadowing or catching and shut it off.    If you need a manual download it. If you cannot get it going again, doing that . Try using the reload CD's. If you don't have one ,again look in the book and see if it is on the hard drive or wher.e If you need additional help, just ask.

Yes, it sounds like a loose connector. It could also be a bad cable. If you want to try it yourself, follow this link for a copy of the maintenance manual:


Good luck and if you have more questions, feel free to ask.

I would suggest checking the website of your laptops manufacturer on how to access the BIOS Battery.

When you have gotten to it, remove the BIOS Battery for several (10-20) seconds and then put it back in.

Test the charger, it may be fried. It's also possible that you need to replace the jack inside the laptop.

Hello Gavrilov,

As I understand that you are facing issue with the Qucik Touch buttons of the volume on the notebook.

If this is correct, install the Quick Touch buttons drivers on the notebook.
Here are the drivers for Quick touch buttons:

Windows XP:




Windows Vista:

You are most likely dealing with a laptop whose power supply has blown/quit working. You are probably going to have to get someone to change out your power supply, or you might just have to buy a new laptop, depending on how old your laptop is, and how much it will cost you to replace the power. Of course, if your laptop is a newer one, then I am sure it will be worth it to get the power supply fixed or replaced. And if it is even so new as to stll have the warranty valid, you can probably get the computer's manufacturer to fix this at no cost. If warranty is still valid, contact them for details. But keep in mind that computer manufacturers also have limits on warranties, and if you spilled something on the screen or inside the laptop, or you are at fault with any other negligence, the tech support people will detect this, and will probably tell you that your warranty is not valid against spills or negligence, thus requesting you to pay for the repair. I hope this helps.

well known fault caused by faulty motherboard,you can disable your usb ports which will stop the annoying fault reports and you can use your latop as normal but obviously you cannot use your usb ports as you have disabled them

HP Compaq nc6120... | Answered on Jul 24, 2008

here is how you should disassemble your laptop


i dont see how a usb port can actually be related to your sound but maybe the best solution right now is to simply replace your usb port as it might have been damaged by your external usb keyboard

Remove the main (removable) battery then remove the AC from the back. Press the power button for 30 seconds. Replace the AC first, then try powering on again.
