The Inspiron 1501 has an integrated sound circuit built into the motherboard. Check to see if the software drivers are loaded for the sound circuit. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to the sound device. Double click on the sound device and a window will pop open telling you about the error. You can access the "Device Manager" by going to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.

Try to check if there is a volume icon on the notification area or go to control panel and check the sound icon there, if not right click my computer and click on manage or go to device manager and check if the driver for your laptop is installed, all dell laptops has built in sound cards, if the driver is not install go to support.dell.com and download the driver of your sound card.
Thank you!!

No sound from the speakersof dell vostro 1310 laptop having vista home basic


I have noticed this issue in several computers coming through the shop. Go to control panel and then make sure its in classic view. Open device manager. Windows will ask if you really want to do that. Agree so that you can see what you need to. Look at the sound portion and make sure that windows actually reconizes your sound device.
If it does, it may not be trying to use the sound card. Go here http://www.icompute.info/no_sound_from_card.htm to get the instructions for setting the default sound card.

Go into your control panel and locate your sound card equalizer program, you may have to try several settings in the "Mixer" but you should be able to find one which substantially increases your volume output.

This is a simple driver glitch. Uninstall the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the settings.

Requirement of sound drivers


If you know what your sound card model / manufacturer is, you can go to the manufacturer website and download drivers from their support page for your sound card.

If you bought your laptop from dell/gateway/ etc you can go to their website also.
