No sound from my Compaq laptop. No system sound or any other sound.
Headphone connection also has no sound.

Any suggestions?

First lets have a look if the drivers are installed correctly:

Start ==> Rightclick "My Computer" ==> "Properties" ==> Click the "Hardware tab" ==> "Device Manager"

You will find a list of your hardware devices. On of the items in the list is called soemthing like "Sound, Video and game controllers". Expand that one (click the "+" sign". You see your sound card there? Any devices show a question mark ?

If this looks fine, do start ==> Control panel ==> "Sound and audio controllers (Im not 100% it is called that way, my windows is not English, it is the Control Panel item with the speaker symbol) ==> "Audio" tab and on that tab look what the default output device is. Expand the list and see if you can select anything else that makes sense.
