Try re-installing the sound drivers as a first possible solution. The service pack should not have interfered with your sound.

Post make and model, maybe there is some issue with vista SP1 and sound.

I cant hear any sounds


I can. Tell your neighbors to hold it down.

OH, I'M JUST KIDDIN'!



(Must be my neighbors........."Hey.........you guys hold it down out there!" )

Suggest you download AND install the audio (Sound) drivers.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Device is the audio chipset.
Version of Windows operating system wasn't stated.

Dell Support > Latitude D530 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/Product/latitude-d530

Click on the blue - Drivers & Downloads - tab.
(Product Support / System Configuration / Drivers & Downloads / etc

http://downloads.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/latitude-d530.html

Scroll down a little until you see the bold black subheading -
Audio - Driver

Look in the chart. There are 3 audio drivers listed.
You are only concerned with the top 2.
They both start with Sigmatel STAC 92xx.........

The top one is Version - 6.10.0.5614
The second one is Version - 5.10.0.5515

The top one is for Windows Vista. (32-bit or 64-bit)
The second one down is for Windows XP, or Windows 2000.
(And for Windows XP 64-bit)

You know which Windows version is on your computer.
Main thing is it Windows Vista, or Windows XP/Windows 2000.

That is the two choices.

Using Windows XP as an example;

Go to the right of Version 5.10.0.5515, and click on the Yellow folder icon to the Right. (Under Download heading, and has a Red arrow pointing down)

A small window will come up -
Opening R171789.exe
Click on - Save File - at the bottom.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

To the Left in the next small window, click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

(If it is different post back in a Comment)

Restart your computer if not asked to do so.

[Windows XP: Click on Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart.
Windows Vista: Click on the Windows logo button (Start), then on Shut Down ]

When Windows fully loads again, you may get a pop-up out of your system tray, "Found new hardware device".
And perhaps another one, "Found Sigmatel audio device".

The system tray is at the bottom of your monitor screen. To the right is the time, date, etc.
It also has the Volume icon. The icon is a speaker symbol.

IF, you do not have the Volume icon in your system tray;

Example using WinXP,

Click on Start, then on Control Panel.
In Control Panel click on - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices
Then click on - Sounds and Audio Devices

In the small Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window, go to -Device volume - in the middle. (Blue)

Left-click in the empty small square box, to the left of -
Place volume icon in the taskbar.
(Puts a Green checkmark in the box)

Now go below in the window to the Right, and click on Apply.
Lastly go to the bottom Left, and click on OK.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling

right click to install driver also
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
if his does not fix the problem

have you tried this control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable)

you might have to get a portable usb sound card if you mean dont have a sound card installed

Volume problems


Please follow these steps to resolve the issue.
  • Check if the Default Audio Device is changed.
  • Please right click on Volume icon and select Playback Device.
  • Select the Speaker as Default and click OK.
  • Please check if Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is installed in the Computer.
  • Please right click on Computer icon and select properties and check if Vista Service Pack 1 is installed.
If the Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is installed in the Computer, then install the BIOS update to resolve the issue as the Audio may not work properly after installing Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).

If the issue still persists, then reinstall the Audio Driver to resolve the issue.

No sound from Dell Insiron Lap top


Check if hardware is properly installed.

1. On My Computer, right click then Properties. (This is only examples of what you should see on your system, but not the same model number of your laptop). You should see like this...

moz-screenshot.jpge02dd34.jpg

2. On the TABS found look for the Hardware Tab as shown below. Then click Device Manager.

3. Device Manager should popup showing this. And if you successfully installed all the drivers successfully your device manager should look like this. If not Proceed to Instruction No. 4

A. If this is what your device manager looks like then Follow this steps:
a.1 Double click the speaker Icon on the lower right of your task bar
near the system clock.

a.2 And this should popup.

a.3. Make sure all Mute check boxes are unchecked. Have a test if
its okay. If not Read instructions to No. 4


4. If you see this yellow exclamation on your Device manager saying, Multimedia Audio Controller, Audio Device of something. Then you should install the device drivers first. So you haven't stated the model number of your laptop so, you might have a CD driver packed with your laptop.

No Audio


If the drivers are still in place what I suggest is to go to the device manager, scroll down and find your realtek audio device, right click on it. Choose to uninstall the device but keep the drivers. Reboot the laptop and let windows find the hardware on the reboot. It will load the drivers and better yet, might just ask if it can check with windows update for an updated driver, click ok and let windows reinstall everything. Reboot afterward just to make sure it all works, if you hear the windows sounds during shutdown and reboot then you know it worked.

No audio out put device is installed


You need to install the correct audio driver for your Vista lap top. The make and model of the laptop would make it easy for us to point you directly to them via a link.

You can verify your audio device is configured or not in "Device Manager".

No sound. yellow (!) by audio driver in device mgr. error 10


Go to your device manager (windows key+break, device manager is on the left) and under "Sound, video and game controllers" will be "Realtek High Definition Audio" which has the yellow exclamation mark. Right click it and select uninstall. Reboot, and Windows should detect new hardware. If Windows doesn't automatically install the proper driver, the latest one can be downloaded from Realtek at the following link:

No audio output device installed


Where are you checking? In the Device Manager?
Go there and disable the sound device and then reboot and enable it again. (If you get there and see a device disabled, just enable it and check again to see if you have sound).
Try this and report back if you still have problems.
Please be aware that Microsoft has an excellent online troubleshooter for Vista available here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

go into System Maintenance-locate SOUND and see if 'mute' is incurred for all sounds. check the settings to ensure sound icon is near desired shortcut. still no sound then go into COMPUTER/RIGHT CLICK ON PROPERTIES/DEVICE MANAGER/SOUNDS DEVICES AND SEE IF DRIVERS FOR THAT SOUND CARD ARE OPERATING PROPERLY.
