Confirm that your BIOS does not have a "Mute PC Speaker" option. Confirm that you have not muted your PC Speaker in your OS. Remove the Palm rest via screws on the bottom of the machine, Remove Keyboard, Confirm that your speakers have not become disconnected/loose in anyway. Speakers are generally connected to the system board below the area of the touch pad.

Speakers are plugged in but there isn't any sound coming out of the speakers, yet i know the speakers work i tried them on my laptop


Things to check:
  1. Ensure you are plugging into the correct port. Some systems have both integrated audio and and expansion sound card. If it has both, the expansion card should be the port to connect the speakers. Generally all desktops use Green as the speaker jack color.
  2. Ensure the volume control is not muted. Set volume for 75%
  3. Ensure if the audio is integrated, that the audio is enabled in the BIOS
  4. in Control Panel, Sounds and Audio devices, make sure the sound card is the default playback device. Also ensure that Stereo desktop speakers are selected as the speaker tyoe.

No sound on my pc


Go to Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices
Ensure that sound card is the default playback and default recording device.
Also, if this is a Dimension 5100, then there is a possibility that the system has a upgrade sound card installed in a PCI expansion slot (Below the video card)
If the system has an expansion card, (Soundblaster) then the integrated on-board audio should be disabled in the BIOS (If integrated is on and an expansion card is installed, you get a conflict and no sound) Normally, if the system has an expansion card, the ports are covered with a black plastic cover. If the BIOS defaults are ever reset, then onboard audio needs to be disabled again.

The sound will not work on my Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop. I've checked all the settings, volume, and unmute. I know it's old, but...it's all I have! :0)


Go to control panel,then choose system,hardware ,device manager and look for yellow flagged items. scroll down to sound,video,and game controllers. click on audio and update device drive. Also you may copy service tag # down and the go to www.support.dell.com . Under support and drivers there will be a place to enter the service tag. Then you should be able to see a list of updated drivers for that model. You may choose optional, recommended & urgent and they will be displayed. If you attempt to install them be sure to read about the proper order in which Dell recommends that you install them. I recently updated a Inspiron 5100. This model has an updated bios that needs to be flashed ,if yours has not been already. If you arent comfortable doing this, I would highly advise you to have someone with the knowledge on flashing the bios,do it for you. If you have a good understanding of it, there is detailed info on that site.

Internal speakers do not emit sound but I can hear w/ headphones


I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)

The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)

What kind of integrated sound card do you have?? I am going to assume its realtek. Go to control panel, then open up RealTek HD Sound effect manager and make sure the drop down menu for Environment is on "none". The try your speakers.

Attaching stereo amp to Dell PC


You might need to change to output setting on your sound card controller to a 2 speaker setup in stead of any other setting that it might be set to and make sure that you plug the jack into the green one. Also, you might want to turn the volume up on the outputs, in case it is set too low.
