Can you use your SYSTEM RESTORE function? You can find it:
Start> all programs> accessories> system tools>system restore.

If this doesn't fix it, I always fall back on Realtek Audio sound drivers. I've never found anything that Realtek wouldn't get the sound working on yet. You can google it and download it for free.

Short of that, it sounds like you will need to restore your sound drivers to make your sound work.

Kristilyn,
You will need to download and reinstall the sound drivers into the system or use the Dell Drivers disk that was shipped with your computer to install. You can download the driver from the link below.

Lost Multimedia audio controller,Multimedia controller,multimedia controller andMultimedia video controller. Please if you can help?


Try this, go to control pnel, select sound, audio and make sure your audio device is displayed in the Sound playback and Sound recording field, if it is not listed in the drop down you will need to reinstall the driver.
You can go into the device manager to reinstall the driver for your audio device or from the CD that came with your system or from the manufacturer web site.
I hope this helps.
Good luck and have a fantastic day.
