Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Drop of liquid got into speaker and now there is no sound at all

A few weeks back my dog drooled into my speaker (I know, what are the odds right?) and is sounded like they were shorted out. I let the laptop dry out and turned it on a day later and everything worked but the speakers. They were low and fuzzy. A week or so later they got a little louder. A few weeks later they have totally stopped working and I have no sound what so ever.

My question is: can this problem be fixed and how can I do that?

Thanks so much!

Hi Danielle,

I can't stop smiling as I type :) My dog, Bessie, drools all over my laptop whenever I sit in front of the fire, it drives me nuts!

    Woops! Sorry that was the wrong eBay link.. I found another one before but that one was a UK-based seller, and I saw from your profile that you're in the States..
    Anyway, you get the idea, you can buy just the part and install it yourself, just look for local vendors in your area, or contact Dell with the part number handy. Good luck..

My X-350 speaker system just stop working and i just got it two weeks ago


if you have only had it 4 2 weeks should be under warranty so any removal of parts will affect the warranty
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this

Liquid Video monitor - no sound


I have no solutions, but I'd love to hear from someone who knows what to do...I have the same problem...only my speakers on my monitor USED to work. I moved and now that I've set it back up, there's no volume. I wonder if I am missing some kind of audio wire and if so, where I can get it from.

No sound to right speaker


It's probably just a cable problem. Reconnect the RCA cable from the receiver to the right speaker and even try to replace the cable. Good luck.
