Vostro 1500 speaker problem

I cannot hear any sound from the vostro 1500 built-in speakers. I checked the sound sign and media player indicates that music is playing but I cannot find a way to hear any sound.

I check the driver and it is "OK"

Make sure you dont have the laptop muted. Seems simple, but ive caught myself with a muted computer before. First, check to see if your computer is muted, by looking at the little speaker icon by the clock. if there is no speaker there, go into control panel> sounds and audio devices, and check there. Lastly if you have no sound, check your media player, because the player itself can be muted/turned down as well. I hope that helps

    Maybe you need to update your drivers, even tho it says its okay. go to the dell website for system drivers. . Download the audio driver first, and see if that works. Otherwise download the others. Hopefully that will work, but even if it doesnt, you still have a computer with updated drivers :S . *Note: make sure you uninstal your current sound driver, before installing the new one.

My friend had the same problem, we couldn't fix it for months. I adviced him to get Windows Vista and also asked him to install Service Pack 1 for Vista. That fixed the problem !

Installed new optical drive in Vostro 1510, but no sound from speakers, media control buttons don't work

When you replaced the drive did you take the top off? It sounds to me like a wire that came out.

If there is audio output from earphone sockets, the audio processign secion inside it is OK, and the fault must be either to its speakers or audio output section. A very skilled and expereienced technician can make it right. It will be best ot get this laptop repaird by its authorised service center for Dell at your town. Motherboard need to be troubleshooted.

For some reason I no longer have the sound/audio on my vostro 1000. It was working previously and then all of a sudden...poof! It tells me that the drivers are there but I hear nothing. Please help.

Check where the speaker wire plug intothe PC, wiggle them around. Pull out, put back in.
If you're lucky it's that simple.

(I actually dissasembled my speakers because of this, before I figured it out.)

Does the Dell Vostro 220 have built in speakers and if so how do I activate them?

No the desktop doesn't have internal speakers. Connect external speakers to the Line Out (green audio jack) for basic computer headphones and speakers with an integrated amplifier. See the manual for directions on setting up surround sound systems. Make sure the speakers are on and have power, if needed.

I hope this helps.

Can i add any speakers to my dell vostro 200?

No you don't. As long as you can plug the speakers to the green port on the back of the computer, the speakers are powered and the volume knob on the speakers is turned all the way up. You should hear sound.

Also make sure the sound is not muted in windows.
