Dell Inspiron E1505 no sound in web browser

Hello,I have a dell Inspiron E1505 WinXP Media Center SP3.  I had removed the 20GB etc hidden harddisk space.  Before and after that my medias worked fine even on browser. Problem: For a while, I cannot hear any sound when I try to watch a video online using any web browser (IE, Google Chrome, Firefox).  The same video, after downloading plays and sounds fine on the same computer.  I recently reinstalled the 2 Audio drivers (Creative and SigmaTel) from Dell website but no use.  Please give me some directions about how to solve this problem.  Thanks in advance,

Thanks for the response damanpreet_c.
The volume button on the video and of the computer volume control are all to maximum.
I tried watching the same videos on other computers and they work fine.
However, Dell computer which used to play Video X through browsers A,B,C and had sound out now doesn't have any sound out. The same Video X after downloading on the same computer has the sound out. The same Video X without downloading through browsers A,B,C have the sound on other computers. Would this imply that on the Dell computer, the browser has some issues with the sound drivers in playing files?
Thanks again for the response.

I must tell you that this is not an issue with the drivers or the web browser or the computer. This could be possible that volume button on the video while on web browser is mute or lowered....

Please check.....

However you can try to watch the same video online on other computer, just to isolate the issue....

Dell Inspiron e1505 running XP professional SP3 freezes after login.


Your profile might be corrupted. You can try boot into safemode and see if you can log in from there. In order to boot into safemode, you have to press F8 button during startup. Then select boot with safemode, wait for a little splash screen of text to go away. you should be able to login from there.

If you can't login as yourself, try login as administrator account. Then create a new account.

Dell Media center


go to Dell.com........go to drivers and downloads.......check to see if there is an update for the media center from them if there is download and install. When media starts up just reduce it so that you don't shut down in order to get any updates for media center. If Dell doesn't have one try Windows updates and see what updates they have for your system. If you have any questions just ask and I will answer as soon as I get it.


Thx

DELL LAPTOP INSPIRON 6400 MY LAPTOP BATTERY IS SHOWING STATUS ( UNKNOWN ) ON WINDOWS & ON BIOS IT SAYSS BATTERY NOT INSTALLED


Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

Dell Inspiron E1505 Audio


Hi artifax,

I have a suggestion/solution for this that I need you to try. Here it is:

first, go to add or remove programs, look for Creative/SoundBlaster and Sigmatels listed there and uninstall every one of them. Then, go to Device manager and uninstall Creative/Soundblaster/Sigmatel under sound and game controllers. reboot the system.

now download and run this,
E1505/6400 BIOS
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

then download and install this,
Sigmatel Audio Driver
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R171789&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=8907&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=235761

Do not install any Creative first, then let me know if this works.

I'll be waiting for your reply.

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?
