Hi there,

Request to try the steps below;

1. Restart the computer and tap the f12 key as soon as it starts to boot up .
2. Select 'Diagnostic' from the boot menu. The computer will run its pre-boot assessment tests (PSA) before Dell Diagnostics starts. During the PSA you will hear some tones through the system speaker but this does not adequately test the audio hardware. Dell Diagnostics plays an instrumental piece of music complete with drums, so if you only hear some tones then you have only run the PSA.
3. Dell Diagnostics should open after the PSA tests, or you should see an option to open it. If you have ever reformatted your entire hard drive then Dell Diagnostics will no longer be there as an option. In that case run it from the Drivers and Utilities (Resource) CD if you have one.
4. Select 'Custom', then the audio tests. (At this point - after you have opened Dell Diagnostic custom - if you can't find the option to select the audio tests that is a symptom of a failed audio chip.)
5. The tests will run. Alternate between using headphones and listening to speakers in case only one signal path is working.
The tests will play some audio and ask you whether you heard it.
6. If you don't hear the music during the test it definitely means there is a hardware failure somewhere in the system. In this case Dell will repair the computer if it is still under warranty.
7.If you do hear the audio during the test but not when you boot back into Windows, that almost always means the hardware is okay but there is a problem with the audio driver or with Windows.
8. Error codes: If you answer 'no' to any question that the test asks you, the test generates an error code that can tell a Dell technician that you answered 'no' to that question. The test does not know the exact component that has gone bad. Before answering 'no' to a question, make note of the circumstances at that point so you will know in general what the error code means.

No sound got eroor code 1b63:061b , 0f1b , 151b, 101b


This error code is usually generated by a Dell Computer. I suggest that you perform an extended test by pressing the F12 Key at the startup of the Computer.
Furthermore, you may go to the Device Manager and check the status of the audio devices which are listed under the "sound, video, and game controllers" category.

I suggest that you try uninstalling and reinstalling the Audio devices from the device manager.

In order to uninstall the audio devices from the Device Manager, please right click on the device and then click Uninstall. It's required to restart the Computer after uninstalling a device. Once the Computer is restarted, reinstall the appropriate Audio driver. You can download the audio driver from the support site of your Computer manufacturer.

Internal microphone not working how do i fix this?


Dear twicher1921,
Try to connect the external microphone first, then go to
start menu>all program>accessories>entertainment>sound recorder.
Try to record your voice then play it! if succeed, it means that your computer and microphone work properly.
Or try this:
start menu>run> then key in

dxdiag

then click OK, you should guide to dx diagnosis dialogue, choose no to run without any internet connection. When the dxdiag box appear,
try to run direct speech diagnosis. It should be work with external microphone. After you completed the direct speech test, close the dxdiag box. restart your computer,
Run the dxdiag one more time with your internal microphone, if it doesn't work, there must be a problem with your internal microphone (broken).

One last test,
try to right click on my computer, then choose 'properties' on the context menu. When the my computer box appear, choose the hardware-tab, then click on 'device manager'. Then click on 'COMPUTER' and then click 'SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES'. If the icon for microphone appear to be in YELLOW Question mark, you have to run the update driver from context menu when you right click on the question mark. then find the driver from internet or from the recovery CD that come with your computer for best driver there is.

GoodLuck!

Best regards,

I have the dreaded no audio device problem, tried reinstalling drivers no luck, tried the dell diagnostics and came up with error codes 1B22:061B & 1B22:071B, my Dell hardware warranty support has expired....


Hi,
The error code , indicates that the sound card on the system has gone bad. You can call the OWR repairs dept for repair estimate on the same.
The second, less expensive alternative would be to install an external sound card in the laptop.
It would look something like this
