Question about Dell (4G889) for Inspiron 2500, Inspiron 4000, Inspiron 8000, Inspiron 8100 Modem
Maybe your audio device is muted by the function key of your dell.
If you look on your keyboard you should see a blue FN key.
Function key. Then if you look further on other keys you should see a speaker key louder and lower and even a mute key(the one with a cross).
If you press the FN Key and keep it pressed then the louder key(i think it's the up key) do you see a something changing in windows or in your screen like going louder. if not pres Function key keep it pressed and hit the key with the speaker mute(the one with a cross). You should see something changing.
If it's correct you should see a speaker with green bows next to the clock. then you can try if its work.
If the speaker is not showing up anytime you press one of those keys you have a problem with the driver or the hardware.
First look these and then we see further.

Sorry for the typo, it was suppose to be Dell WEB site
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. Also make sure you select the Windows Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.
