My Dell Precision M90 has lost it audio. How can I fix it?

I checked the obvious but it is not on mute and the graphic showing the volume level responds to attempts to increase or decrease the sound level.

Try installing other anti-virus like NOD32 or karspersky. You can also try to do a system restore, this may or may not solve the problem though,also using the system restore may get rid of some application you have install prior to the date you will revert it to.

Or you can try this online virus scan

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

have them scan your system (its free),that way you'll know if your computer really has a virus or not.

This is a simple driver glitch. Uninstall the sound drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the settings.

The M90 has 2 fans (1 processor and 1 video card) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM90/en/sm/fans.htm#wp1000550
while the fans can be passing diags, the system could still be having a cooling issue. Some things you can do are:

  1. Use some canned compressed air to blow out the fan intakes and exhaust ports. The hear exchanges can become clogged with dust and debris causing the cpu or video card to overheat.
  2. The M90 video card is replaceable. If the issue is re-occurring on a regular basis, there is a decent probability the issue is the card. Try booting to the F8 Menu and run system in the VGA mode to reduce the load on the video card. If the system runs without issue in this mode, then the video card is suspect.
  3. From OFF, Hold the Fn key and press the power button to initiate diags and see if you get a diagnostic failure.
  4. Update the bios and video drivers, see if issue resolves.
If issue still occurs after all of the above, then replacement of the video card may be required

Installing internal dell m90 smart card reader


You have to take apart a good portion of the laptop to reach the Smart Card Reader spot. You need to turn off the computer, unplug the AC power and remove the battery first. Make sure that you are grounded to the computer. Then remove your optical drive and the hinge cover. Next you remove the mini-card antennas either from the mini-card or their secure spot, display assembly, the keyboard and the palm rest. Then you can reach the screw for the smart card reader and the place on the motherboard where the smart card reader connects.
The full set of steps and pictures is available from the Dell support site, http://www.dell.com/support/Manuals/us/en/19/product/precision-m90 . See the Workstation Service Manual. The direct link to the English version is ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_precision_mobile/precision-m90_service%20manual_en-us.pdf . There are multiple pages you need to follow.
I hope this helps.

My Mic in Dell Precision m90 stopped working after i downloaded Skype? Any suggestions on how to get it working again?


Have you checked the sound settings in Skype? Usually skype lets you to set your sound equipment individually rather than using the windows general settings.

Especially if you have onboard mic. Try the call settings sound options in skype and check to see if it is working.

Hc sd card on dell m90


Maybe your card reader is bad. Purchase a card reader that will read multiple formats of cards from a local computer store for less than $20. Plug it in your usb port and see what happens.

I have a Harmon Kardon HK 3370 Stereo Receiver and a Samsung LCD LE40C530F1W. When I connect the stereo Aux jack to the LCD Audio jacks ( red and white rf cables ) I get no sound out via the receiver.


Obviously make sure your stereo mode selector is set to AUX and the volume on the stereo is turned up at least a little when you test it.

If you still have no luck then try increasing the volume on the TV as well. You may have it set so that the level of the audio signal leaving the rear output connectors on the TV varies with the TV volume. That way if your TV volume was turned down or muted when you tested it, then you would not hear anything coming through your stereo.

There should be a setting in the AUDIO OPTIONS menu of your TV where you can switch between a VARIABLE AUDIO OUTPUT and a FIXED AUDIO OUTPUT level.

With the FIXED audio output level, you control the volume of the TV audio coming through the stereo speakers with the stereo remote only.

Otherwise it should work.

Good luck.

Sound plays on my system but i dont hear it at all.my windows


Let's start by checking
  1. Your speakers are plugged into the green connector on the computer
  2. Speakers have power, are turned on, and volume is up
  3. Check your "speaker" icon on your tray (lower right hand corner of desktop) - to make sure volume is up and not muted.
