This sounds to me like bad video/ audio drivers. However before you change drivers try the steps below:

Windows XP

  • Right click on the Desktop
  • Select properties
  • Click Settings
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Troubleshooting
  • Move the slider to the 3rd from the left.
  • Click Apply and OK.
Now try the video again. If it still doesnt work, try disabling the Antivirus Application and seeing if that changes anything.

It could be your video resolution. Make sure the resolution is the native resolution for the monitor.

What Browser are you using? Try another one like Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome. See if its just a browser issue, or computer issue.

Let me know if this doesnt fix the problem.

Thanks,
Dan

Dell Inspiron E1505 no sound in web browser


I must tell you that this is not an issue with the drivers or the web browser or the computer. This could be possible that volume button on the video while on web browser is mute or lowered....

Please check.....

However you can try to watch the same video online on other computer, just to isolate the issue....

Unless you can see the little safe mode text in all 4 corners then it sounds like the computer IS in regular windows, but the video card drivers are gone. Try re-installing the video card drivers from Dell for that particular video card (there are several possibilities) and see if that helps. It is possible the video card is going bad, but usually re-installing the video drivers works.
This could be a sign of other problems too- start with the video drivers and see if that helps. If it does not- I'm guessing the operating system is corrupt, virused, or the video card is going bad.

hey,
i have inspiron 6400 myself, with vista home edition installed.

your e1505 is the new version of my dell

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?

why pay for software?
