Sorry pal. Machine is a DELL Inspiron 1721. No cable neither loudspeakers. I have no motherboard CD shipped with laptop. I already tried to install audio drivers from DELL Utilities & Drivers CD, but OS refuses to recognize that a soundcard is present.
Thanks anyway. It has to be solved by someone who's had the same problem and managed to work around it.
Try manually installing it by using the Add New Hardware wizard. Make
sure all other soundcard(s) are deleted from Device Manager first, though.
Another thing you can try- Boot into Safe Mode, open Device Manager, remove/delete any and all instances of sound card hardware you find, reboot and see if Windows re-detects.
