Re: Sound problems

Go to device manager and click on the sound icon. If you see an exclaimation mark next to it then it means the drivers are not working. Also take a note of hte code errors ie. code 10 or code 22.

best thing to do is visit the dell site and download the latest audio drivers or download hte dell hardware wizard that will scan your laptop and download the drivers you need.

good luck

My dell inspiron beeps 20 times at sturtup

I wonder if you have a keyboard issue. Most times the constant beeping means the keyboard is bad, but it doesn't normally boot or revert back to 5 or 4 beeps.

your audio driver is not helpful for sound card which is you install on your pc.
plaese change this driver.
all windows have different driver for different devices.
so you install the driver compatible with window vista and sound card.

Dell Inspiron 1525 buzzing sound

As you mentioned that you have downgraded to windows xp, did you change the sata operations to ATA mode from AHCI mode in bios before installing XP? If you have done this then try and reinstall webcam driver and also the audio driver. If possible get into device manager to check if all drivers are working fine.

Please rate your comment if its helpful.
