Check first audio settings, ensure that the audio is not muted or volume is down.

If settings are ok, then you must reinstall the audio driver.

If the model is Inspiron 6400 you can download audio driver here, run the file after downoad has finished.

If your model is different, then locate the audio driver from Dell Drivers and Downloads.

Sound driver not avalebel


Sound drivers are required to make the sound card in your computer work, thus allowing your computer to output sound. You must have the correct sound drivers software that corresponds with your computer, model of sound card and operating system in order to get sound. Sometimes when your computer has had an update, you may need to download your drivers again. Sound drivers are available on the Internet to download and install for free. 1. Find the model of your sound card and identify what operating system you are using, as well as the model or serial number of your computer.
To find your sound card model, go to the Start menu, open the Control Panel, locate and open the Device Manager. Near the bottom is an option called "Sound, video and game controllers." Double click to open the sub-menu. There you will find the type of sound card you have.
To find your operating system, right click on My Computer on your desktop. Click "Properties." The name of the operating system should be listed at the top.
To find your computer model, it will vary from PC to PC. For laptops, check underneath for a label. For desktops, check on the top or left side of the tower.
2. Open an Internet browser and navigate to the website of either the manufacturer of your sound card or the brand of your computer. Most computer brand websites, if not all, supply drivers you can download from their support and downloads section. For example, if you have a Gateway computer, go to www.gateway.com. Find "Support," then "Drivers & Downloads." Fill out the required fields to search for the driver.
3. Look for the driver that corresponds with your sound card model, computer model and operating system. Click the link to begin the download. When it asks if you want to save the file, click to save to the desktop. After the download is finished, double-click the file and follow the on-screen instructions to install your sound driver.
I hope you find it very helpful.

Please rate me. Thanks.

My computer is on mute, and the youtube videos dont have sound.every time i put sound on the video, it says mute, and every time i lower the volume all the way, it unmutes.


The YouTube video controls the output sound-level that it provides to your computer.
But, if you "mute" your computer, the sound-level is ignored.

When you "unmute" your computer, then the sound-level control on the video will control the volume of the current video.

Sound device installer


Instructions
    • 1 Check your speakers and make sure they are connected to the right inputs on your computer before proceeding to check the sound drivers.
    • 2 Click the Windows "Start" button and click the "Control Panel." Double-click "System" and click the "Hardware" tab. Click the "Device Manager." For Windows Vista users, click "Hardware and Sound" and click "Device" manager. The Device Manager allows you to verify the status of drivers and hardware running on your computer.
    • 3 Scroll down the Device Manager until you locate "Sound, video and game controller." Click the "+" button next to it to expand it. You should see a list of sound drivers on your computer. If you see a question or exclamation mark on any of the drivers, it means it is either corrupt or missing.
    • 4 Right-click the sound driver that has a question or exclamation mark and click "Properties." You should see a title stating that the device is not working properly if it is damaged. Click the "Driver" tab and click "Update." Follow the wizard to install the audio drivers. Move to the next step if this does not solve the audio problem.
    • 5 Write down your computer model number. The location of the number varies with different computer models, but can generally be found on the back off your system.
    • 6 Go to your computer manufacturer's website and look for the drivers and downloads page. Use your computer model number to locate the sound drivers.
    • 7 Download the sound drivers when you have found the right ones (they are different with different computer models) and install them on your computer. Go back to the Device Manager and verify that the question and exclamation marks are no longer there.
    • 8 Restart your computer. Verify that the sound is now available by launching a media program (e.g. Windows Media Player) and playing back an audio file.

Poor sound quality


Many laptops have very small tinny sounding speakers built into them. If you wish to get better sound you can hook it up to a set of external speakers through the headphone port (or line out if it has it). You may also be able to get a set of USB powered external laptop speakers for your laptop.

You can check that there isn't dirt covering or stuck in the speaker grill, and that you don't have the volume too loud that it's overpowering the speakers.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa!

No Sound


Sound requires two things on a computer with intrgrated sound, like a laptop machine. It requires the sound software(this is what manages and runs the sound). It also requires a driver.This is the software needed for the computer sound software to communicate with the sound chip(hardware)  Hope this helps explain it.    If you have no sound and would like assistance, please give us the make and model of you laptop computer. Thank you .
