SOURCE: i have reinstalled windows 7 in my dell laptop

Sound has this funny way of behaving sometimes.
This happened with me with the sound in Skype disappeared suddenly one day.
I used all I could think of possile and not possible.
In the end I downloaded Skype again-that did it.
You might try a new sound in your laptop.
Then look through the manual look in troubleshooing.
all the best

Try to reinstall the drivers, but I suspect the problem is in the wiring inside the casing of the laptop. Check to see if you might be able to get it replaced or checked at least by someone with expertise.

I have a dell Inspiron M5040

There is no way of obtaining the password or resetting it short of hacking which I am not at liberty to discuss. You could however, contact dell to see if they will help. However, if you do not mind losing all your data what you could do is to download a partition manager and boot straight into that. Format the whole hard drive and re-install windows.

With regards to tweaking, read this guide:
It may work depending on your version of Windows 7!
