Re: Sound output problem
You will need to pull the bottom case bezel apart and check the connection to the speaker panel... it plugs into the motherboard with a 2 wire plug (black and red wires typically)
There's a chance that if the laptop was ever previously disassembled, it might have pinched the speaker wires upon reassembly of the laptop..
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When you put it on, what is written on the front indicator, , what does it shows at the front interface? If you see overload or protect or something else? Tell me what is the written word on the screen or interface at the front and we'll see after. Do you also hear the relay sound clicking after putting it on after a couple of seconds? If not, tell me. Might be the output that are dead. Those are generally 3 output sound modules inside. Or only one of them dead. Or if it has no sound everywhere in every input. Tell me more about every little details of different things it does or shows and i will try to help you. Thank's. My name is Serge.
this depends on what kinda audio output you want to install ..but the general idea is to get the audio signal from the computer from the green out in the back on the sound card (it is a 3.5 jack ) ..and there is the stereo out-put for the computer's sound..It can be amplified in any device that has a stereo input on 3.5 jack .. if you want something more complicated..the map of the out-put (the scheme) will be shown in the sound manager (of teh driver ) ..when you make the output changes..This is on a color code..and can be 2+1...3+1..4+1..and the surround 5+1..when you choose surround 5+1 from the sound manager ..it is shown all 3 outputs and the role they play ..bass+center ...Front ...and rear ..they are 2by 2 stereo paired on left and right ..
Check cable connections between the monitor and the sound
card/motherboard output, you could unadventedly dislodged it, check the
monitor speaker volume control on the monitor menu. If all else fails
connect the headphone input directly to the PC case front or back sound
output - much better than via the monitor anyway - shorter pathway
makes better sound, last but not least: use a better set of speakers -
monitor speakers ****
Hum first,,, anytime you have 2 devices with sound running to a cable or ant equipted TV you will get a hum as they are grounded off curcuit. HumEliminator (radio shack). You didn't tell us if your PC had been enabled in control panel for either device. I have had no luck using the rear aduio output on any computer. Front headphone jack on PC does not need enabled and will work better for this. Unless you use a USC codet interface which is better yet for CD quality in sound. Also make sure the Aux inout is enabled on TV as well. Direct Input would be the same. Lastly,,you are 100% positive the backside is input and not actually out put or gaming inputs.
Go into your sounds settings
Control Panel> Hardware and Sound (on Xp its just sound)> sound> You should have 4 types of speakers available.
I have Digital Output Device (HDMI)
Realtek Digital Output
my default was the HDMI and i changed it to speakers and then my speakers worked.
Hope this helps ^^. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks
Yes you can use the headphone output to drive speakers but be careful about the volume levels you use, as this could damage the speakers. You should opt for the Line Out socket from your Dell which should be on the back side of the device.
