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!!

Any PCI sound card will work. If you buy a used one make sure you know exactly what brand & model so you can get the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

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.

Sound card


Your laptop should have a sound card built into the board. To make sure, check for three round color coded holes anywhere along the edge of your laptop frame and ports. The Sound output is usually green. The sound in is blue and the mic in is red. If you plug in speakers n the green and don't here music, then check to see your SOUND DRIVERS are installed. If they are not no sound will play. The check for Sound drivers, right-click My Computer, then chose HARDWARE and let it list the components. Any one with a yellow mark needs drivers.
