My dell laptop sounds haven't been working for quite a few years right now, & it didn't bother me before because I barely used the sounds, but now that I need to hear sounds from the laptop, I was curious how to get the sounds back. I don't know how it disappeared, but my sounds aren't just here.
try to go to control pannel of the computer then go to sound and then check the setting their as it required ,if it doesnot work then go to run and then type in devmgmt.msc and it will open up devicemanager and then go to sound and check that it doesnot have red ex if it has a ed ex then right click on to it and try to enable it and it will definetly work

I haven't set up Skype before, but it seems quite reasonable that if the Sound control panel is set to use the external microphone, that would work. Have you checked to see if the sound input is set to an internal microphone built into the laptop, or a line-level input? That could be your problem, especially if no such microphone is present.
Well, caramelapopc, if you haven't upgraded the amount of RAM/memory in the laptop at any point, it is completely understandable that you might experience slowdowns. When Windows Vista was released, some manufacturers marketed laptops with only 1 GB of memory. This is the bare minimum for Vista to run, and as Vista got more bloated with updates and service packs, that 1GB gets pushed to it's limit. Acer was actually sued for selling laptops with only 1GB of RAM and Windows Vista because the laptops didn't meet the minimum system requirements for Vista after the video adapter had allotted say ~100MB for itself. My recommendation would be to go to www.crucial.com, look up your laptop by manufacturer and model number, and purchase more memory from them. You'll see a significant increase in smoothness, basically, it'll be back to like new again.
Here are some steps which you can try.
- Restart the computer if the computer if you haven't restarted it yet.
- Perform system restore back to the earliest restore point.
- Reinstall the sound card driver if above steps don't work.
Hope this helps.
HDMI is only used for Video output and not for sound, you will have to use your laptop audio out (has a pic of headphones), you are able to get headphone jack to phono (white / Red) cable to connect to TV or surround sound system or your laptop speakers.
the first thing i would do is do a bios update for the machine whilst using AC power, that may well iron the problem out, if not then there is a problem with the laptop itself i.e. a power drain, sizzling and popping noises is not good at all and could damage the machine further, remove the battery and check the connections on the laptop, dust and hair conduct electricity, it could be as simple as that, it is also a known fact that some lithium batteries are faulty and have been known to blow up whilst in use. Go to the laptops support website to find out if they have been having problems with batteries and if there any returns proceedures
Don't worry. It could be that the sound drivers are not instaled. Simply download the drivers from support.dell.com by entering the service tag. The sound should be back. The battery has nothing to do with sound. From the same website, install the BIOS update. That shoule get the battery message go away. Incase that does not happen, then you may have to buy a battery. The batteries have 1 year of warranty from the date of invoice.
I work in DELL, so please try what I ahve mentioned and you should be happy!!! If not, post a message.
This is going to be a problem either with the sound card malfunctioning after the machine warms up, or feed back from the speakers due to a wiring issue. Either way, this is a hardware problem, and you shouldn't have this or any problem with the machine, especially with it only being 10 days old. Take it back for an exchange. Demand an exchange and don't let them give you the run around. When you get the new machine, you will see that you shouldn't have any problems with it for years to come. Also, don't let this bother you about Dell machines, they're one of the best machines on the market. Just like everything else, there are a few lemons.
