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 !

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.)

In Dell Vostro 1014 I have set the volume to the maximum, in aplication i've done the same, but the sound from the speaker, that is built in, is so low that you can almost hear it. On headphones the sound...

This series is not a multimedia type as the Inspiron and so the volume is low in the audio section. The best that can be done is to use WInAmp , use the equaliser to boost and receive a better sound.
Dell says this Model is preferred for Office Use.
