The driver may have inadvertaly been removed. Try going into device manger (in control panel > sytem) and right click the soundcard, click on uninstall. Then reboot the computer and it should be picked up as new hardware and reinstall. If this does not install the drivers for it then go here:

select your model and download the driver needed.

I hope this helps

Have you tried reinstalling the audio drivers? Check in device manager and see if you see a question mark by the speaker icon. If you double click on it, it will allow you to reinstall your drivers. Good Luck.

My laptop has no sound yet I have no money to purchase a sound driver. can I get a free one


Laptop's sound can fail to work for a couple of reasons:

(1) the sound drivers are not properly installed - as far as I know, every computer manufacturer's web site will allow you to download their hardware drivers for free. Hope you've already done that.

(2) the sound hardware in the laptop are either disconnected or failed - a small number of laptops actually use separate sound cards (instead of integrating the audio hardware on the main board). Hopefully you've already checked that, too.

(3) the audio output jack (headphone) is damaged - in which case the sound hardware is functioning 100%, but there's no sound produced due to a shorted jack.

That being said, if it's neither of the above, the cheapest means of getting some basic sound to a muted laptop would be a USB sound card and a set of external laptop speakers. If it sounds elaborate and expensive, I assure you it's not. Assuming you're running Windows (hopefully XP or newer), you can buy a USB sound card on eBay for around $2 and pay about the same price for a cheap set of cheesy laptop speakers - plug the USB sound card into a working USB port, plug the speakers into the USB sound card, it's plug and play, and ... viola - you'll get $4 worth of cheap sound. It's a bit cumbersome but it's a cheap workaround that I've done before when a laptop went mute and I had only a shoestring budget to work with...

No sound, installed all Audio Drivers and verified


Hope this helps. Volume can be controlled by the task bar volume switch and also the Laptop's physical buttons.

moz-screenshot-5.pngmoz-screenshot-6.pngHere is the support manual for the 9440.

Page 1-6 shows items 5,6 & 7. These are the MUTE, VOLUME+ and VOLUME-. The three buttons are above the 8,9,0 and - keys.

Good luck

Dell Inspiron 1100 Laptop with FN Volume issues.


Starbug1S1- This may have been something you have already checked but I will suggest anyways. You said you had control of your sound from other means - Sounds and Audio Devices properties was one- did you notice a check box that reads Place volume icon on the task bar. This may remedy part of your problem if you put a check in the box. Hopefully this helps. Thanks.

No soud on laptop


Check bottom of main screen to see if you see the speaker icon, right click on it, go to properties, and make sure it is set for Laptop speakers. Make sure volume is turned up. If needed, go to control panel, then device manager and update the soundcard drivers.

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working


I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
