Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

Sound gone on Inspirion E1505 after installing Logitech Webcam

Running Vista. Installed SW for webcam and all sound (internal/external speakers) no longer work. Certain chimes and noises will occur so the speakers are still working.

I checked the drivers and the sound section of Device Manager. My default device is actually showing the green EQ bar while iTunes is running in the background. It seems like the sound should be heard (almost like it is muted somewhere). I have checked everywhere I know to see if something is muted and it is not.

HELP!!!!!

Have a dell inspirion 1521 and My Microphone does not pick up any sound. Please Help


Firstly, what Operating System came with you Inspiron 1521? It's either Windows XP or Windows Vista, my guess would be that it has Windows Vista (If you've not replaced the Operating System since you purchased it).

I would imagine that if it's not something simple like the volume of the mic being set to zero or muted, then it could be an issue with the drivers.

If you are running Vista, your best bet is to download the following drivers

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R173082&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1521&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=15135&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=235336

Although it's listed as Intergrated Webcam, your microphone would be part of your built in webcam, so with any luck, installing the drivers from the link above should solve your problem.

If not just let me know, and I'll be happy to investigate further :-).

No headphone sound, but internal speaker works fine.


Hello,

Hello,

It is because that your internal speaker is the default play back device other than your head phone or external speaker.

Need to go to your sound setting.

Depend on your operating system, click Start, then click Control panel, then click Hardware and Sound, click Sound.

Under Playback tab, select your external speaker or head phones as default device.

Sound gone after installing Logitech Webcam and downloading Skype


You might want to take your computer back in time.

Start > Help and Support > Undo changes to your computer with System Restore > Restore my computer to an earlier time > select a date that is before your installation of the Logitech device, and follow instructions from there.

You will not lose any data, but programs installed after your selected date will have to be re-installed.

Sound problem - Acer Aspire 5920


I assume you are using Windows Vista as ships with Aspire 5920's. Try the following to make sure that Windows is using the correct output options:
  1. Click on the Start Menu and go to Control Panel
  2. From Control Panel click on Hardware and Sound
  3. Click on the heading Sound and the sound configuration box will appear.
  4. The first tab is called Playback and allows you to select a playback device.  You should find your external speakers and internal speakers listed.  
  5. Click the external speakers and then click on the "set default" button to make sure that the sound is played back through those instead of your internals.

Dell E1505 internal speakers not working


You have verified that the sound card and drivers are working, by plugging in externals. This leaves only the speakers. Check and clean the speaker connections, they will sometimes work loose or get a little dirt/corossion build up. If the connections are good, then you will need to replace the speakers.

Acer 5610 sound problems


Hi, It is possible that: 1. You may have recently installed an add-on/external device such as a multimedia keyboard which changed the audio output from internal to external; 2. The laptop's internal speaker might have gone dead (highly unlikely but still a possibility) - try plugging in external speakers or a headset and check; 3. Most if not all laptops uses a female stereo babyphone jack to connect to external speakers. This jack has a built-in switch that cuts off internal speaker if an external is plug in. If you are using eternal or headset from time to time, it is possible that the switch might have locked to external and does not switch back to the internal; 4. You may have a hardware issue specifically the sound card/chipset. This of course would require an inshop repair which may be better off with an authorized service center. At worst is have the entire laptop replace if it is confirmed to be a hardware issue. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
