First go to control panel - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices, then click on Sound and Audio Devices and make sure the volume is not muted.

If this is not the case click on Start - Right-click on My Computer - then Properties. click on the Hardware tab, then click device manager. When device manager opens, look for either one of the following symbols along the left hand side (!, ?, or x) The exclamation point and question mark will be yellow while the x will be red. If it is a red x, double click on that item and there is a drop-down list with the selections to enable or disable the device. Enable it. If one of the other two symbols are visible you will need to reinstall the driver. For that I will need the make and model of your computer.

How to enable CD digital audio extraction
(Digital CD Audio Playback)


2. Click the HARDWARE tab.


4. Click the plus (+) to the left of DVD / CD-ROM DEVICES and double-click your CD-ROM drive. Note you can also right click and select Properties.



6. Click OK

Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ROM drives listed in Device Manager.

Note you may need to reboot your computer for the change to take effect.

At this point CD digital audio extraction should be enable and you do not need to have the CD audio cable connected between your ROM drive and sound card. Note if you have an older computer (CPU under 1G) then you may need to have CD digital audio extraction turned off because your computer may not be able to handle the data from the CD on the system bus.

Can't install Windows 7 on a Microspot PC (problems with audio).

I don't think you can jump from XP to WIN7, you would need many "new" system files/folders.

I have a message the audio service is not running when i click enable nothing. i cant get sound

If you haven't already tried restarting the service, please try that. Also, check Device Manager to see if any of your sound devices have a yellow exclamation next to them. If they do, there's a possible problem with the audio drivers. Go to Dell's support site and download the appropriate drivers for your model.
