No sound on my dell latituded610 after upgrade to windows7


Windows 7 has a known issue of not always finding the correct audio driver. If you go to the device manager, you'll probably find a red "X" next to the audio section.
Go to the Dell website, find your product, and look at drivers and downloads. You may have to download the XP driver and force it to use it. Optiplex 520's have this problem, so I've seen it happen. Best of luck!

No sound from my speakers after i pluged the into a dell desktop


Look for speaker icon in task area (right side of task bar). If there is a red x on it it means the speakers are muted or the sound device drivers are not loaded or the sound device is disabled. Click on speaker icon and go to mixer. Check for muting. If it says sound device is not present then open Control Panel by clicking on Start or Windows button in lower left corner, go to Control panel, often abbreviated "CP" then click on system then on device manager and see if Sound, video and game controllers has an audio device listed. If not you'll have to acquire the drivers from the dell driver download site and apply them. If it does and device shows disabled, then click on it and enable it. If there is no sound device then check for an "Other device" entry in device manager. It'll usually have a yellow ! on it. That means a device was identified by plug and play but the system could not find a driver for it. Go to windows update service in CP and run find updates. If Windows finds an upated sound driver, install it. It will install and plug and play and set up device. Otherwise off to www.dell.com with the service tag number of the computer---found on back or top of system. This will lead to the downloads and drivers page for your specific box. Look down list for Sound drivers, download and install them. Usually with dell it downloads as an executable (Rnnnnnn.exe) and all you have to do it click on the file name to run and install it. After download If in Vista or Windows 7 I always right click on file name and chose "Run as administrator" whenever installing like that. That makes sure you have adequate permissions to do the install and have to install correctly.

Also it goes without saying to make sure you have plugged the audio in lead to speaker set into the correct sound plug on back plane of system (usually the green one).

I cant hear sound from my computer


If you are using speakers on a desktop computer, the first thing to try is to test your speakers on a different computer. If they still don;'t work, then it's time to replace them. If they do, then there a few things to do.

You would first have to test the speakers on a different audio port & see if that makes a difference. If it still doesn't work, the next few steps will also apply if you are using a notebook.

Check to make sure that the volume is all the way up and NOT set to mute.

After making any adjustments to the volume, try playing any media file & see if the media player volume is also correctly set (cranked up, NOT muted).

(*) In the event that it comes up with an error, read it: it might say something about not having a sound device installed. If it does, then you will have to download the audio drivers from the Manufacturer's website (You will need to type in you computer's Service Tag in the website to skip to the downloads page where you would look for the Audio Drivers category); if not, see below.

If you have Windows Vista or Seven with either HD audio or HDMI-capable display, right-click on the volume icon near the system clock and choose Playback Devices.

Something like this should come up:

rictutero_20.jpg

Make sure to select the CORRECT DEVICE. If your computer is connected to an HDTV, choose HDMI. If it's a notebook computer, choose Digital Output. Otherwise, select SPEAKERS as seen above.

If all else fails, you will have to uninstall then re-install the sound drivers.
In Windows 7 or Vista, click on start & type "Device Manager" in the Start Search box and click on the Device Manager icon that appears in the results list

rictutero_21.jpg

For Windows XP, Click on Start -> Control Panel -> System.
The System Properties window pops up; click on the "Hardware" tab then click on "Device Manager"

rictutero_22.jpg

In the Device Manager window, open the Sound, video and game controllers.
Right-click on your audio device and choose "Uninstall"

rictutero_23.jpg

When prompted, restart your computer. It should work after that. If it does not, it will provide an error message that will determine the actual cause of the problem. You may end up downloading the drivers as detailed in the (*) section above.

If the drivers will NOT install and says there is no compatible hardware, then the audio device has stopped working & will need to be replaced. Any other error would pertain to the operating system and would be a completely different issue.

My windows 7 doesn't read my speakers on my audio sound card or have a speaker sign?but i hear the woofer sound, i go to the sound from open up control panel , i don't have a realtek sound card....


You probably have a conflict with the drivers you installed. Try doing the following:

Go to realtek.com, visit the Downloads section. Pick one of the codec types (not sure if it really matters) and download the driver but DO NOT install it yet.

Right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. Find your sound card and right click>delete on every driver you tried, then restart your computer.

Navigate to the directory where you downloaded the codec from realtek.com and install that one, then restart again.

If that doesn't fix your problem, go to your computer manufacturer's website (hp.com, dell.com, etc) and find the drivers for your system to install. Each site is a little bit different, if you tell me which computer you have I can help you download them.

If neither of those alternatives work, then you'll have to do a little more investigating. For starters, where did you find the 6 alternative drivers you installed?

Hi whitco0313,

A corrupted or missing audio driver can cause this problem. You can try to do a System restore back to the earliest date that it worked fine. If this doesn't help, you need to check out Dell website and download the audio driver compatible for your laptop model and operating system version.

I hope this helps, please inform me if this resolves your problem or not to check for other resolution that we could try. Thank you.

I formatted the pc and i have problem with sound it is not showing the volume controller and i installed the realtech hd audio manager but its not working


99% of the time this is related to the sound card driver installed. Either you do not have the correct driver or you have not loaded the sound card driver at all for your machine. When you can't see th Audio icon in the system tray (by the time) this means windows cannot see any device which can play sounds.
My advice is to go back to system website (hp.com, Dell.com) look up your machine in there Support -> Drivers area and download the sound driver again. Once installed properly you should see the speaker icon appear in the system tray as expected.
