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"

    Thanks, I already tried those things. It seems as if the lap top cannot "find" its built-in speakers. The sigma tel driver is up to date...Not sure what else to do

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. http://support.dell.com/support/download... . 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 !

Audio problem streaming media via ROKU and RCA players. Constantly have to adjust volume to hear them talk, but then the music/sound effects blast you out.


It sounds like you're using a set of stereo speakers to play a surround sound output. I would try going in the TV menu and turning off surround sound

We have an HCL desktop computer. Though we had loaded Ac97 Sound Driver still the sound is not coming (totally soundless) Can you suggest what to do?


Try to download and save the Audio Driver and then Run it to overwrite the Drivers and then restart right away. Make sure that you select the right operating system. Normally when you restart, you'll already hear the sound for shutting down and the welcome sound.

Then try to play the sample music using Windows Media Player. Try to use a headset if there's one available. If it's still quiet,

Note: you'd need a sound blaster or any desktop speaker to be able to hear any sounds. But if there's already a speaker built-in, then it that means the speakers are defective.
Hearing a beep is not the speaker you use to hear the music.

Hope this helps.

I cannot hear any sound when playing media music player


Check whether your speakers are on mute. Check your sound card - have you got one? Is it broken? Check volume of speakers. Maybe uninstall and reinstall Windows Media Player.

My Sony Vaio VGN-FS690P has stopped playing sound. The sound card states it is working correctly. It does play one sounds, the sound when it starts and show the VAIO screen.


Hopefully this helps. Right click on your volume control icon. Open the "Volume Mixer," and make sure that nothing has the mute X on. Then right click on "Volume Control," and make sure that the volume control is checked to play all sounds, and that your Speaker box is checked. Next step is your music, if the sound was muted directly @ the music playback, this could be the problem. Open your Media Player and try to play music, if you cannot hear it, click on the mute button to the song playing. If your Player was shut off in the "mute" mode, then you will not hear sound. It Happened to me once. You will need to check all of your "Players" to see if any of them were shut off in "mute."

I've got crative inspire t7900 not workin


You can hear music and sound when you test your audio and also the Windows startup and shutdown even sounds. But you can't hear any music when you play it in Windows Media Player or the videos on youtube because Windows Media Player needs some codecs installed and you don't have those installed.

You can download and install this Media Player codec pack from Microsoft.

Hope that helps,
Regards,

The speakers wil not play on the background and the center.


If you connected to a 5.1 surround card and checked and they are connected ok you can hear all the speakers when you play music, movies that are in 5.1 format only. If you want to hear also all of them if you listen to stereo movies/music you must set the sound card to emulate multi channel. Also the player you use to listen music/wath movies must be set to 5.1 and must accept Dolby Digital/ DTS decoding if your sound card doesn't(eg. VLC media player-has integrated DD and DTS decoding and codecs for all tipes/formats).

It sounds like a hardware problem, but to be sure, trying playing different kinds of files and also use a different player. For example, if you're using Itunes, try Windows Media Player or playing a sound file from the internet such as a myspace page.
