Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

No audio device found

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the audio driver and also downloaded the driver from Dell but it still can't find device (icon on taskbar says No Audio Output Device is installed). When I try to update the driver it can't find anything. Actually since I uninstalled the original device, and tried reinstalling it, it now shows up under "Other devices" on the Device Manager instead of Audio device. I ran the pre-boot diagnostic test and the audio part works fine. I'm at a loss here....I'm wondering if maybe a Windows update changed the way it recognizes drivers or something. I also tried installing a wireless Microsoft mouse (downloaded the software) and it can't find the driver.

Thanks for any advice.

    Thanks very much for your time. I ran into a couple of issues. My audio device was SigmaTel and I don't see that on the list of drivers that the DCPv1.5 cleans. I had already uninstalled it anyway, I'm not sure if that matters. I downloaded the clean one from Dell, but when I try installing it I get this message "ExitError:Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again.

Download Driver Cleaner Pro v.15 from the link. Also, download, and save on your desktop, a clean version of your Sound Card drivers. Run DCPv1.5 and remove all of your audio drivers, plus any possible problem drivers (i.e., if you installed generic drivers to try and get your card to work). After you uninstall, reboot, install your downloaded drivers and reboot again. This should fix your problem, if not please post an update to this thread and I'll continue troubleshooting with you.

    I was afraid of that. This Driver Cleaner has SigmaTel Audio removal
    tools, but will cost you $10. They do have a money back guarantee,
    though. Since it is showing up under Device Manager (even under
    different device) I am assuming that it is still functioning, just not

    Uninstalling drivers from the applications is normally fine, but alot
    of times they leave small little ghost driver particles on your hard
    drive. These fragments will often times interfere with new driver
    installations and sometimes make it impossible to get a device working
    until removed.

No audio after reinstall. Uininstalled and reinstalled chipset and drivers (in that order), went to services and disabled and reinabled audio,uninstalled and reinstalled modem, did all this in safe mode...

Have you actually gone into your sound and audio devices in the control panel and made sure that all the sound devices are correct and the volumes are up.

Also, back in the devices menu, you could try the option "Roll Back Driver"

No sound got eroor code 1b63:061b , 0f1b , 151b, 101b

This error code is usually generated by a Dell Computer. I suggest that you perform an extended test by pressing the F12 Key at the startup of the Computer.
Furthermore, you may go to the Device Manager and check the status of the audio devices which are listed under the "sound, video, and game controllers" category.

I suggest that you try uninstalling and reinstalling the Audio devices from the device manager.

In order to uninstall the audio devices from the Device Manager, please right click on the device and then click Uninstall. It's required to restart the Computer after uninstalling a device. Once the Computer is restarted, reinstall the appropriate Audio driver. You can download the audio driver from the support site of your Computer manufacturer.
