This is probably a driver issue. You can download the latest driver from Dell.com. The download site is:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_E1405&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

This will take you directly to the audio drivers. There are three listed. Open the Device Manager to see which one you have. Download the appropriate one

These are self-contained executable files. You should be able to just double click on the file to install it. After the installation completes, restart the computer. The sound should work. If it doesn't, try uninstalling the audio device in Device Manager and then rerun the installation file.

Good luck and please let me know how it works!

Sound card replacement for dell inspiron e1405


The sound card is integrated into the system board (motherboard). If your audio circuit is defective then you will have to replace the system board.
Try running diagnostics on yourcomputer to see if you have a hardware problem. You should have a CD that camewith the computer that has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed undercontents. Boot form this CD and run the extended diagnostics.
If you don't have the CD you can go to www.support.dell.com and select "Drivers and Downloads". Enter the"service tag" (serial number) of the computer. You can then download"Diagnostics" .
To boot from a CD disk, power on your computer and tap the key tobring you to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD into the top CD/DVD driveand then select "Boot from CD/DVD" and hit key. Select the"Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics.

If all tests pass then reload OS ( Operating Software ).

No audio device


First, if your system reset was turned off, and you now turn it on, it won't have a previous reset point anymore, since it was turned off. :(
Your best bet is to go to http://support.dell.com and go to download drivers. There, you must enter your "Service Tag" number under your laptop and it will show you all the drivers for your system.
You'll see a small list for audio, read them cafully and make sure you use the one that states its a driver for the audio device, plus the latest posted date on it (ensures compatibility with your current version of Windows).
Once you download and install these drivers, you may need to restart your computer.
Let us know how it goes and please rate us. :)

My laptop has no sound


Do you have the sound muted on your keyboard? Or do you have sound enabled in the system BIOS?

When you look at the devices on device manager, does the sound card show up under audio/video devices?

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?
