Are you forget to install sound driver during installing operating system on your laptop? So first check that drivers are properly install or not. If it is not install, install it. If already installed, try to update it.

Still you are not getting any sound on your dell laptop so it also possible that the sound card is possibly dead. If the computer uses on-board sound (meaning there is no separate card with sound jacks on it), that is more problematic. That part on the board cannot be replaced without replacing the whole motherboard, normally. In either case, install a new sound card and use its jacks for audio.

No sound from my speakers, only from earphone jack


You must have some needed materials: driver and application recovery CDs and updated sound driver software.
Step 1: Check your sound card. Click "Start", than "Control Panel", and then "System" and "Hardware" and navigate to "Device Manager". Double click "Sound, Video and Game Controller". If Sound Card have been listed in this page, then you system already have sound card installed. If not, please check the enclosed information of your Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 to see if you should installed a sound card. If sound card is a must, then you should install a sound card. Note: if you have already installed sound card but not be listed in "Sound, Video and Game Controller", then go to "Other Devices" to check the list. Portable computer normally have no card sound because they have integrated sound management system.
Step 2: Take a look at all the output devices to see if they have been turned on and plugged in. The three jacks in following picture are for Microphone, input and output respectively. Check whether your output device have been put on mute or not. Check volume control setting. Go to "Start" "All Programs", "Accessories", "Entertainment", and "Volume Control" or just click speaker icon to set your volume.

Step 3: If the sound is audible but suddenly lost then you should implement system restore. Go to "Start" bottom, "All Programs" button, "Accessories" button, "System tools" and then "System Restore" and then go to System Restore Wizard.
Step 4: Sometimes you need to delete and reinstall sound driver. Click on the "Start" button, then the "Control Panel" and "System". What follows is the "Hardware", the "Device Manager" and "Sound", "Video" and "Game Controllers". Click on Sound device and then delete it. Click OK when they are a window prompt and say something like whether or not to continue the deletion. Delete all sound devices except Legacy Audio Drivers and the Audio Codec. Go to official website of your Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 and find out the updated sound driver for your sound card and download it. Then restart your Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 and reinstall the sound driver.
Now, you can have your sound out. Absolutely, sometimes sound problem may caused by certain hardware. So you can check information from your hardware supplier to see information about problems with your specific model of computer or sound card.

THERE IS NO AUDIO SOUND IN MY MACHINE. WHAT TO DO


Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings

A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound. 2 Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray. 3 Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.
Perform a System Restore If Necessary
1 If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs." 2 Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore." 3 Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.
Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers

The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps. 2 Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers." 3 Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard.

    Rebooting by itself. No sound coming out for months now even if volume is u p. Not muted. Checked Device Manager, sound seems ok. I think the sound card is gone.


    possible u are having issue with the sound card, most of Dell inspiron system's got integrated sound card u might need to have replacement for the motherboard and it might resolve the issue rebooting byt itself.You might want to consider reinstalling the OS first before hardware replacement.

    No sound on my laptop dell inspiron E1505


    I found many references to this issue but I am not sure which may apply to your problem. Here is a set of steps to follow from another site: (Assumes Vista and Realtek)

    • Open Vista’s Control Panel (Window | Control Panel)
    • Open the Realtek Audio Manager (not “Sound”)
    • In the navigation bar in the far right, there is a little yellow folder icon. It is just below “Device advanced settings” and above “ANALOG”. Click the folder icon.
    • Click “Disable front panel jack detection” so that a yellow check mark shows up. Hit “OK”, and close the Realtek HD Audio Manager. That should re-enable the sound.

    Sound problem


    Couple of thoughts:
    1) is mute on?
    2) is the volume turned too low?

    - assuming you have XP for the following -

    3) if you open the control panel and go to 'sounds and audio devices', make sure the volume is 25-50%. Click advanced button and put all volume sliders at 25-50%. Make sure none of the 'mute' boxes are checked.
    4) Right-click 'My Computer' and click 'manage'. From the list at the left, click 'Device Manager'. On the list at the right, is there any items under 'sound, video, and game controllers' that have a yellow exclamation or red x on them? If so, you'll likely need to reinstall the audio drivers.
