windows 7 sound problem
Sound started coming and going on my laptop. Then it got really erratic,and would try to work for a short period.

The sound finally completely quit. Today after being off all day. the sound tried to work but not long enough to check it out on Youtube or any videos.

The battery does need replacing. Would thast have an effect on the sound?

Another thing on this thing is Iclicked to disable the microphone, and it deleted it! Ant way to download drivers or something to replace it?

The battery will not affect the ability of the sound card to function, other than a dead battery will keep everything from working. You probably either have a driver issue, or a conflict with two softwares.

As for the mic driver, you should be able to download it for free from the manufacturer.

Do a system restore to when it did work.

Tried the restore thing, still no luck. It is like something is getting weak.

Sometims when it has been off a while like overnight, the sound will work for few minutes then jsu go away.

Problem solved....sot of.

Got a pair of ear plugs. Plug them partially in to get sound through the ear lugs, all the way in to get sound through the speakers.

The disk that came with your computer when you purchased it will have all the drivers necessary for installation, including your sound drivers. If that doesn't work, you can find out what sound device you're using by looking at device manager, then googling it.
