Question about Dell Inspiron B120 Notebook

Sound Card/Speakers[?] URGENT

Well, I have a Dell Inspiron B120 Laptop. I've had it since March of 2006 [I believe] so its very well broken in! My speakers have gone out. Yay. And I'm not sure why. All the troubleshooting menus and everything say that the device is working properly. (Please don't think I'm stupid. I know my computer is not set on mute!!) But obviously it isn't. So, does anyone have an idea or suggestion? Please! This is urgent!! THANKS!!! =)

    Yes I did try external speakers and headphones, and neither worked. I read something about a sound card. Is there any way I can check it? What is it, where is it, and what does it look like? (i am soooo not computer talented lol)

Outside of actually replacing the internal speakers, have you tried hooking up external speakers to the headphone or line out jack on the laptop? That will tell us if it is actually the speakers themselves or a fault somwhere else. If they do work, then you need to replace or check the speakers inside the laptop to make sure that the wires have not come loose.

    Unfortunately there is no sound card, it is built into the motherboard. Your only solution is to add an external sound device or replace the motherboard. You can pick up a USB one like that or like this.

    Thanks and please take a moment to re-rate as fixya.

There is no sound from Dell Inspiron B120 laptop. under sounds and audio devices in the control panel, there is no indication of an audio device.

That shows you that the driver might be corrupted. Make sure you right click on my computer, manage, device manager and see if there is a yellow mark under the sounds. If that is the case go to the manufacture website and download the driver

I have a Dell Inspiron B120 and the sound does not work. I don't have it on mute and I have tried external speakers and headphones but still no sound.

Check to see if your laptop has a wheel, kind of like the ones you used to see on Desktop PC CD Drives.

If it does, turn the wheel and presto.

If that doesn't work you should try reinstalling the sound drivers.
