Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

No Sound/drivers fine/possible board issue

My laptop sounded like a helicopter, took it to the PC repair dude and he couldn't find anything wrong. Got it back and no sound anymore. Took it back he reinstalled drivers etc, still no sound. Said there is something sticky on the board. *blush* I spilled a drink more than once. No sound from headphones. Is this problem fixable? Does the board have to be replaced? Any insight would be appreciated.

Yes; sad to say, but your board probably will need replacing. Spilling drinks on your computers, esp laptops, isn't a good thing to do. I have never experienced spilling anything on my computers personally, but I know other people why have, and the motherboard is what they had to replace.

Go to the control panel / sound and check if the sound is set to mute ? if it is then untick the box and increase the volume. If you are playing songs from cd make sure its a working one. if the cd is fine and the sound is full you are not able to hear the sound then you will need to install the drivers for the card. use the drivers cd which came with the machine. After installing the drivers you should be able to hear songs if you still have issues then possibly somethings wrong with the soundcard / speakers.

My IBM Thinkpad Laptop key board

To correct the number key issue:
Thinkpads allowed you to change the numlock status by hitting the left shift and 'ScrLk' key simultaneously.

You may need to re-install the audio drivers to correct your sound issue. Test your speakers on another unit.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

i took my laptop to circuit city for some issues and it was returned with no sound working. They, of course, said they didn't do anything. Works great other than no sound.
