The volume on my computer is not working


Try installing the audio driver again, if you do not have this driver on a CD, then you need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -
