Greetings my name is Mark and I will be happy to assist you. If this is a standard crt screen and not a flatscreen what is happening is that in the monitor is what is called a flyback transformer it is similar to a lightning storm that surrounds your picture tube. When dust developes around the screen the flyback voltage arcs aspecially when it is idle or black. The solution is first unplug the monitor and let it set for one hour before proceeding. open the monitor case and with a SWifter dust mop clean around the picture tube very carefully. Let me know if this helps if not write me back and we can look at other solutions.
Be mucho blessed,
Mark

If you have a speaker icon at the lower right side of your screen, right click on that. Click on playback devices. A window should come up with your devices. If you have a sound card or graphics card and want to use either, make sure you're hooked up or that they are recognized. If the window is empty, right click on it and click "disabled devices", if you then see your device right click on it and enable it. You can also try, Click "start", find control panel and click on to open. Find "device manager" and right click on and open. Click continue. Click on the box with + next to "sound video or game controllers". A drop down should show your devices. Right click on each one individually, starting with one you want to use. If you see "enable" click on that. Right click on it again and click on properties. You should see a window with "this device is working properly". Right click on it one more time and click update and let it update. If you are using a sound/graphics card, that might need an update. Let me know what manufacturer and model you have and I acn help with that.

The voice and sound on my laptop is not working dell d10


Step 1 .Reset the default BIOS settings:
You can try resetting the sound default in the BIOS. Here's how:
1. Turn the laptop on. When the Windows logo first appears, press the F1 key or Dell key repeatedly until you see the BIOS setup screen appear.
2. Press the F5 key ( Setup defaults). In some other PCs depending on the manufacturer the BIOS at start-up will have one of the default options that have names such as - ‘Load Fail-Safe Defaults’ and ‘Load Optimised Defaults’.You will have to choose ‘Load Optimised Defaults’
3. Select Yes or OK, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.
4. Press the F10 key, then select Yes or OK to save the default settings. Press Enter.
5. Exit the BIOS and restart your system checking for sound.
( For most system's entering the BIOS will be the same but if it differs for your system, consult the operating manual for instructions on entering the BIOS.)

If this doesn’t work go to step 2

Step 2 . Configuring on-board sound in the BIOS:

The on-board sound setting in the BIOS should be Enabled. To enter the BIOS, turn on the laptop and when the first screen appears, press the F1 key /Dell key repeatedly until the BIOS Setup screen opens. Use the LEFT and RIGHT ARROW keys to select the Advanced tab. Press the DOWN ARROW key to select Onboard Audio Options and press ENTER. If Onboard Audio Options is not available, select I/O Device Configuration and press ENTER. If Audio Codec is listed, select it and press ENTER. Select either Enabled or Disabled depending on your configuration and press ENTER. Press the F10 key and then press ENTER to save and exit Start Windows and check for sound. If there is still no sound, continue to the next Step.

Step 3 . Reload the current sound driver

To do this, follow these steps
1.Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2.In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
3.Locate the audio device that was included with the computer.
4.Right-click the device, and then click Properties.
5.Click the Driver tab.
6.Click Uninstall.
7.Make sure that the Delete the Driver Software for this device check box is cleared, and then click OK.
8.In the Device Manager dialog box, click the Action menu, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
You should see a message that a hardware device is being installed. Additionally, the uninstalled audio device is now present in Device Manager.
9.Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

If that doesnt work and you have an installation CD, the audio drivers should be on the disk.

If you don’t have the CD go to your computer manufactures web page to search for updated sound driver software. Read the instructions on the download pages carefully
before installing.

If there are no updated sound drivers available, use Microsoft's Windows Update feature. Connect to the Internet and try the following items until Windows Update opens:

1.Click Start, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
2.Click Start, click Settings, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
3.Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
4.Go to Microsoft's Web site and click Windows Update from the Downloads menu.

Check if the sound works now….if it still doesn’t work then most likely the sound card might be faulty.

Blue screen and clicking sounds generally point to Hard drive issues. Does the system run a POST test or does the screen stay black?

Alert sounds


The first thing thta comes to mind, have you turned on mute or lowered the volume? Double click the speaker icon on the bottom right corner of your screen and make sure that the mute box is not checked off, and that the volume is turned up all the way.
Also have you ever updated the drivers for your sound card? If not than follow these easy instructions to update the sound card drivers.
  1. Click 'start'
  2. right click 'my computer'
  3. click 'manage'
  4. on the left side click 'device manager'
  5. on the right side click the + sign beside 'sound,video and game controlers'
  6. than right click each line that has the words 'sound or audio' in it, and click 'update driver'
Any problems let me know. Tell me how you made out, and please rate my answer.
