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.

Unable to install Audio driver


In the control panel sound icon, are the drivers correct? OR Try uninstalling SP3 if yuu have done so and then reinstall the driver. Have you deleted the device in the <device manager> and let windows find the device and install drivers?

B) Purchase an external usb sound device and disable your on board sound card. Here is a link to some:

No sound


You can try bringing the computer to an earlier point by using a restore point. Make sure that you dont have your audio muted. Go into your device manager and go to sounds and audio devices (xp; its different for vista). If everything is 'drayed out'... go into start/run/ [then type] msconfig Under the tab 'services' look for something that says sound or audio on the far left column. On the far right column make sure it says 'running' if it says 'stoped' thats your problem. If you cant find anything, go to hp.com and download updated drivers.
