Check the device manager.

There are probably a lot of drivers missing.

They're all HERE.

Hope this helps, please don't forge to rate my solution, FixYa

Have you installed the sound drivers? Maybe you have the wrong drivers installed. Another common problem is when your sound device uses the bluetooth drivers instead sound drivers.

try going to dell.com and click down below at drivers and software

I have a Lenovo G530 laptop. Windows xp SP3 is installed in it. The problem i am facing is when I am inserting headphone jack in it then also sound is coming from Laptopspeaker & it is not detecting...


Try reinstalling the driver of your sound card. Then restart your computer. Some audio card failed to recognize certain function that is why you need to reinstall their drivers just to refresh the functionality of the device.

Sound card for dell inspiron 1750 on Windows XP


Download sisandra free which gives you every detail about whats on your pc including the soundcard name and lots more then go to driverguide.com register free and get your driver.If you downgraded from vista to xp then you need to uninstall the windows "HD uaa bus driver", a long story but easy to do.This removes the driver permenently locked to the soundcard which wont work in xp but if uninstalled allows a normal driver for your card to work so eg:ac97 sound card,download the xp version as you have downgraded and if you go back to vista the operating system will reinstall the HD driver.Simple if you know.

No sound after reinstall window xp


Determine what sound card you have installed and download and install the driver for it. Go to device manager and click on "Sound, video and game controllers" to see what's installed. It will also tell you if the device is not working properly.

No sound driver?


I think you must have the "Universal Audio Architexture" first, u can download it from microsoft site...here

it rather annoying I think, for an old style notebook...mine too
hope this help :)

No Sound on Laptop


Let me know the model of the laptop and if you have any details of the sound card.

Sound card


That was a dodgy job,
the licence for windows XP installed by this guy is not genuine and can get you in troubles with Windows updates.
If you have a valid Windows XP licence (check the sticker at the base of your laptop), you should reinstall XP home using the licence number on the sticker.
If you do not have a licence, well I cannot talk here...

Regarding the sound, that is not a big problem, you just need to download and reinstall the drivers for your laptop.

Post a new question on Fixya, giving details on your laptop make and model, you will get the link to download for drivers.

I will be offline for the following few hours.

Don't forget to rate the solution appropriately.

Sound card


Dear Loreerupe,

This sounds like a corrupted software file. Please use your installation disk and reinstall the sound driver file. This will overwrite the corrupted files and upon the machine rebooting you will have gained sound operation again.

Unfortunately you dont state the model/maker/windows operating system and cannot help any further with instructions/manuals/driver files.

I hope you can fix this,
Regards
