You need to reinstall the audio drivers. It will be on the disk which comes with the motherboard (if the audio is integrated) or sound card. If you don’t have the disk you can get it from the manufacturer’s website. Check the motherboard or sound card for the name and series number before going to the website

After i reformat my laptop, no sound can be hear from it


I believe you have an audio driver problem. What you can try is to use the drivers and utilities disk that your dealer gave you when you purchased your computer unit. Install all the necessary drivers and utilities and I'm sure you will have your sound/audio back.
In case you don't have a drivers and utilities disk with you try to go to windows update using internet explorer browser. Find updates from microsoft windows update. Once the updates are found, try to check the custom updates not the priority updates. On the left side of the screen you will find a selection of updates try to click on the hardwqare(optional) updates if you find a n update on your audio device then select and install. reboot your computer after all the updates are installed and check your audio after reboot

Audio Driver for Acer System


There are 4 ways you can download and install audio drivers :

1.From Device Manager

(1).Click Start, type Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
(2).In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Sound, video, and game controllers.
(3). Right-click the device, and click Scan for hardware changes.
You should see a message that a hardware device is being installed. Additionally, the uninstalled audio device is now present in Device Manager.
(4).Close the Device Manager dialog box, and then determine whether you can hear sound.

2.From the motherboard or installation CD - If your computer came with a motherboard CD, the audio drivers should be on the disk.

3. From manufacturer's website - If you don’t have the CD go to your computer manufactures web page to search for updated sound driver software. Read the instructions on the download pages carefully before installing.

4. Microsoft's Windows Update feature : If there are no updated sound drivers available, use Microsoft's Windows Update feature. Connect to the Internet and try the following items until Windows Update opens:

(1).Click Start, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(2).Click Start, click Settings, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(3).Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Update (if it is listed).
(4).Go to Microsoft's Web site and click Windows Update from the Downloads menu.

"no audio device installed"


First check the device manager from the control panel. Check and see if there is a audio device detected and if it is a problem device.If the device has a problem try removing the audio software and then remove the audio device.then re-boot the computer and windows should detect the hardware and begin installing drivers. Make sure you have the updated drivers from Dell downloaded and the updated software. If it does not detect the hardware after re-boot you can try adding hardware manually in the control panel and have it auto detect any new hardware. If these thins do not work the audio card or built in audio may have stopped working. You can buy a basic PCI audio car for fairly cheap to install on your computer if you cannot get the audio to work.
