Check your laptop keys for symbols - usually printed at the bottom of the f keys. If your laptop has a FN button or something similar, you may have mistakenly disabled the speakers WITHOUT muting the sound in Windows.
Hi, you need to check your audio device driver is installed or not. Go to desktop ,right click and select manage. Now click on device manager and check for yellow symbol on Sound,video and game controller . If you have yellow symbol on it then you need to install audio driver for your PC.
1-check the device manager 2-in sounds and ... look for a yellow symbol 2a-If a symbol appears try to update the driver or disable it. 2b-Restart (at boot the Os will try to recognize the device and auto install the driver. 3-test your speakers in other PC
3-then device manager
4-then look for your cd-rom
5-uninstall the driver (only if you have the cd-rom installation program from the manuf.) and restart your PC
If you don,t then find any conflicts in the device manager "like a yellow symbol" and if you find any try to "update driver".
Right click My Computer Click Manage Click Device Manager Make a note of any devices that appear with a warning symbol and look them up on google. All drivers must be installed after a re-install of Windows for the computer to work correctly.
Try to check if there is a volume icon on the notification area or go to control panel and check the sound icon there, if not right click my computer and click on manage or go to device manager and check if the driver for your laptop is installed, all dell laptops has built in sound cards, if the driver is not install go to support.dell.com and download the driver of your sound card. Thank you!!
Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc… It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.

Hi, Ok so is your sound a built in part of your motherboard or do you have a separate sound card.
Have you been able to check the device in your device manager?
To do this go to "Start" then to "Control Panel" or "Settings" then to "System". A window will pop up with several "Tabs" across the top. Choose "Hardware" and at the top of that page click on "Device Manager" scroll down till you see where it lists your "Sound" devices. If you have a yellow alert symbol or a red exclamation symbol then there is either a clash or an error with the driver for the sound device.
If you have the installation disc you can re-install the driver which should fix your problem.
If there are no errors in the "Device Manager" then there would be some other problem, possibly the device has failed, if it is on board (built in to the motherboard) then the easiest sloution is to buy a separate sound card and install that. If it is already a card then replacing it is still the option.
Another thing, and this may sound silly but is often the case, have you checked that nobody has accidentally "Muted" your sound? Down in the bottom righthand corner of your screen you should have a small speaker icon. If you click it, it will open your volume control which at the bottom has a mute box that should be unticked. If it is ticked then all your sound will be muted.
Another silly things also is to check your speakers make sure all cables and power is ok and that the volume is up and not down.
Please don't be offended I have to ask the dumb questions to eliminate what might be a very simple problem and you would be amazed what some people do by accident.
Please let me know how you go and if I can be of further assistance at all. If you do not have a driver then that is usually not a problem we can find them we just need to know what type of device you have ok.
