Your computer is not recognising the speakers assuming you have them installed on you PC, laptop, tablet or device.

Assuming it is a computer as you suggested in your question if you go to start menu > control panel > device manager and then look down the list. If there are any yellow triangles with an exclamation mark in the middle that would suggest your computer is not running that device or application fully or correctly. In a lot of cases the driver for such a device will just need updated. If you ensure that all the upadates have been downloaded and installed on your PC this may solve your problem without further investigation.

I would next look in start menu > control panel > sound. This will be all the devices under that category recognised by your PC. Make sure the correct one is selected and marked as right click the mouse and ensure the correct one is your default. You will also be able to test to ensure it is all working as you think it should be. Hope this helps.

The sound has stopped working on my Dell Inspiron 700m. Have checked the Sound and Audio Devices in my Computer but all looks ok!


Hi andrewc489

DELL INSPIRON 700M NOTEBOOK PC AUDIO PROBLEM

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question.

Make sure the Audio function in BIOS is 'Enabled' and then save those new BIOS settings.

To enter BIOS Setup, Press 'F2' or 'Del' during the first POST Screen at Start Up.

Also, check the status of the Audio Device and the Audio Driver in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the Audio Device and/or its Driver.

AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS

For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds Speech and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the Drop Down Menu to the right of "Sound Playback - Default Device" (preferred Default Playback Device) > select "Sigmatel STAC 9750 AC97" > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS

Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to both the Audio/Sound Device (SIGMATEL STAC 9750 AC97) and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the motherboard's Drivers and Utilities CD or from here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_700M&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

If your Operating System is not the original Windows XP for which this Notebook was designed, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Driver exists for that Operating System.

If you are committed to both this Notebook and an unsupported Operating System but all the other Devices and their Drivers are functioning normally except the Audio Device or you are using XP but the Audio/Sound Problem remains unsolvable (faulty Audio/Sound Chip), then consider buying and installing an external USB Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. They are inexpensive. See example:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=xternal+usb+soundcard&x=16&y=23

I hope this helps.

There's no audio in my computer


If you are using speakers on a desktop computer, the first thing to try is to test your speakers on a different computer. If they still don't work, then it's time to replace them. If they do, then there a few things to do.

You would first have to test the speakers on a different audio port & see if that makes a difference. If it still doesn't work, the next few steps will also apply if you are using a notebook.

Check to make sure that the volume is all the way up and NOT set to mute.

rictutero_18.jpg

After making any adjustments to the volume, try playing any media file & see if the media player volume is also correctly set (cranked up, NOT muted).

(*) In the event that it comes up with an error, read it: it might say something about not having a sound device installed. If it does, then you will have to either download the audio drivers from the Manufacturer's website OR re-install it from the drivers CD that came with your computer/motherboard; if not, see below.

If you have Windows Vista or Seven with either HD audio or HDMI-capable display adapter, right-click on the volume icon near the system clock and choose Playback Devices.

rictutero_19.jpg

Something like this should come up:

rictutero_20.jpg

Make sure to select the CORRECT DEVICE. If your computer is connected to an HDTV, choose HDMI. If it's a notebook computer, choose Digital Output. Otherwise, select SPEAKERS as seen above.

If all else fails, you will have to uninstall then re-install the sound drivers.
In Windows 7 or Vista, click on start & type "Device Manager" in the Start Search box and click on the Device Manager icon that appears in the results list

rictutero_21.jpg

For Windows XP, Click on Start -> Control Panel -> System.
The System Properties window pops up; click on the "Hardware" tab then click on "Device Manager"

rictutero_22.jpg

In the Device Manager window, open the Sound, video and game controllers.
Right-click on your audio device and choose "Uninstall"

rictutero_23.jpg

When prompted, restart your computer. It should work after that. If it does not, it will provide an error message that will determine the actual cause of the problem. You may end up downloading the drivers as detailed in the (*) section above.

If the drivers will NOT install and says there is no compatible hardware, then the audio device has stopped working & will need to be replaced. Any other error would pertain to the operating system and would be a completely different issue.

go to control panel-sound-default audio device & check which device is enabled as default device. In case of HD audio remove the speaker jack & reinsert, if that port is selected as default audio then you should get an immediate message saying 'audio jack plugged in'.

NO SOUND


Blown soeaker or amp. Only way to analyze is to open it aand do testing. First plug headphones into the 1/4 inch line output jack and see if anything comes through... it will only be in one ear as the ouptu is not a stereo output... If it comes to there, then the preamp and line driver is working, leaving the speaker and power amp suspect. If nothing ocmes out, I suspect the power SUPPLY might have failed.

WINDOWS XP SOUND DRIVER INSTALLATION


There may be other problems with your sound. however to install a sound device download Driver-Mechanic free from www.elitegroup.com driver updates and run it on your computer, it will automatically detect any required driver updates for your PC and update them as required from the website free. Alternatively go to your control panel, open system icon, click hardware tab, click device manager, go to sound video & game controllers & double click to open, select your multimedia controller and right click, click "properties", click the "Driver" tab & click the "update driver" button; windows will then guide through the process to update your driver.
