I can be able to play music but the sound doesn't me out of the build in speakers after formating the new Laptop inspiron 1420.Drivers are installed.


it means you did not install the correct drivers for your laptop. I have experienced this before, but its was rectified when I installed the correct drivers.

Make sure the drivers installed is the exact drivers for for your operating system (Vista/XP).

Go to, look under the page, and select drivers & downloads under "Support".

On the next page click, "Select Model", choose "Laptops" Choose "Inspirion Laptops" then select your laptop model (1420), press confirm and proceed for the download.

Select your operating system (Win XP or Vista) scroll down and you would see "Audio". Select audio and proceed for the download.

Make sure you uninstall the old audio driver from your computer, before you install the new one.

To uninstall the older driver, click start menu, under search, type, "Device manager" and press enter.

From device manager, right click on audio and uninstall from there.

Take care.
