Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Dell Inspiron 6400 laptopsuddenly no sounddiagnostic cd found nothing wrong
FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports.
If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations.
(If you hear sound from other devices such as playing a CD or the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.)
If this is OK then try...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a yellow "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem! Missing or corrupt drivers.
If no "Warning" icons then try...
Click on the blue icon on the second row, (it looks like a large key in front of a monitor) that says "Scan for hardware changes" when you hover your mouse on it.
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devices that have 'Audio' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons.
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the "remove" button, follow the instructions given by the program.
(This uninstalls the DRIVERS)
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
