Question about Dell Inspiron 1420 Laptop
My Dell Inspiron 1420 (runs on Vistas Home Premium) has just recently done something odd. Any audio I play has an odd muffling sound, like the source was stuffed inside a plastic bowl. This is most noticeable when I have my headphones in. I've already confirmed that the headphones are not the source, because I have two pairs that have the same result when plugged into my laptop, but sound perfectly fine when plugged into my iPod. I don't remember changing my sound settings at all, so I don't know what's up.
Right click on the white speaker icon,by the clock ,Select Playback devices,when the sound box opens,select the play back tab,double click on speakers,click the enhancements tab,select disable all sound effects,click on the advance tab,select 24 bit 48000 Hz (studio quality) click test,if you hear sound,click apply and close the open boxes.Now double click on the red speaker by the clock,plug in the headphones,check the box at the bottom that says headphone virtualization,click ok.that should do it.

Hi, you have to install the updated audio codec for your system. Here's the link. Copy and paste this link to your address bar:
When the webpage opens, click the Download button. Click and choose external mirror to download. A box will appear, if there's an option to Run or Save the File, click Run but it there's no Run button, then click the Save File button. When done downloading, Run the installer.
