-Maybe one of the cause that you can't install the sound driver is because there is a sound driver currently installed on the system that is corrupted .
-Try to uninstall first under device manager and reboot system then reinstall the sound driver.
-After this steps you still can't install the driver, check if the current sound driver that you are trying to install is compatible driver for your system.
-Check manufacturer website for system specification.

I have an ABS laptop. I have gone into control


First make sure nothing is muted.
Start>Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices

If nothing is muted, and your volumes are up and still no sound, try updating your audio drivers,

Start>Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Sound Video and Game Controllers

Right click your audio drive and select Update driver.

No sound from my dell 3100 exsternal speakers are working.


Hi there.
On the computer look at the bottom right hand side of the screen, click on the speaker icon and see if there are any sound devices installed on the computer. If there is make sure it not on mute and that its at 100%, then play a tune.
plug the main speaker jack into the green port at the back of the computer, if its not the green one try the others too.
If there is no driver installed post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

No sound,


You may be missing a sound card which can me purchased and installed professionally at any computer store. You also may want to check that the computer even recognizes the speaker by accessing the Speaker section in the Control Panel.

Computer Speaker Problem


Hi,
Go to Control Panel switch to "Classic view" then System, choose "Hardware" then "Device Manager" go to "Sounds,..." remove the sound drivers there and restart the computer...

That should automatically re-detect the correct drivers and reinstall them properly... It might require you to insert the Driver CD of the Motherboard, you need that.

If not, re-install the drivers from the original CD or make a download.

Good luck... Donate that Fixya on me, okay!
