    It's a laptop, I am talking about internal speakers not external ones.

  • fredise Feb 03, 2010

    it started with no more sound,period,about 3 weeks ago.
    I pluged my headsets to see if I could get any sound and luckily I can at least hear the sound thru them.

    Thanks.

    hi, how did the problem first start? has it been like it for a while ? or did you just remove headphones and the sound was gone ?

    it's not a driver.. thought so myself.... I noticed a break in the speaker wires when I removed the panel above the keyboard. The 4 little white and black wires snapped! dell had a small design flaw on thier end! just remove your keyboard, unplug the wires, and splice and soldier them back together... it can be a easy to mederate fix, about 10-15 minutes, but it will resolve your no sound issue!

Fred if you get sound to your headset from the same port you get no sound for your speakers, it is the speakers and not your headset. Are there any speaker lights on at all? If not maybe your power supply for the speakers is bad.Try a different set of speakers in the same computer and see what happens. If they work, the speakers are bad. Otherwise you have some strange connection problem.

    The first one on the list might be your solution.

    Here is a link to a specific problem with Dell 700m speakers. The speaker cables get cut in a hinge, you can check this as the possible issue.

    Here is the link to the article. It may solve the problem:

Since the Headphones are working fine, try using Orange port as you might be using Powered speakers. Tatr should work. Let me know the updates.

    Incase, we are referring to inbuilt Speakers not working, as the sound card is good (HEADPHONES WORS), the speaker has gonr bad. Repair required.

Dell inspiron 700m no sound


You may have the well known issue just as I had which is the lines running up the left side from keyboard to screen which are supposed to go to the speakers easily break because they are very small and they break from just the opening and closing of the screen. It's no worry I dug it all out and still just went on Amazon and got a USB audio speaker/headphone interface for $8.
Here's what I got and I am very happy....you will save a lot of time to just grab this now... Trust me. I would never suggest if I didn't like it and have used or owned it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00BP2REBK/ref=pd_aw_sims_8?pi=SL500_SS115

I have no sound from my dell inspiron 700m. ext speakers dont work either and i have reloaded drivers and also i get a working as should message


Try doenloading the latest audio driver.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on thislink to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

If the driver has installed without any problems and you still cannot get any sounds from the speaker, then the audio chip maybe faulty and this cannot be a simple fix, the motherboard needs to be replaced. It will be better to get a new laptop as a later model laptop is better and cheaper.

Hi,my speakers stopped working.. I plugged in a headphone and it stopped working..it was working fine before


If neither the headphones or the speakers work, then there may be an issue with the sound card drivers, so I'd uninstall them and reinstall the drivers. If headphones work but speakers do not, take off the hinge cover, see if one of the wires are broken (Happened on mine) if so you can splice, but the are is close work.

Laptop speakers does not work, headset does


When you connect your headset in to the laptops 3,5 jack connection there is a little switch inside that socket.If you push in the jack it turns the pc-s speakers off.Probably that little switch is stuck,you can move around the jack to try to free the switch.No other explanation for this issue.

Internal speakers do not emit sound but I can hear w/ headphones


I have a 700m, so I'm real familiar with the system. I see one of 2 possibilities. The headphone jack has a switch that disables the on-board speakers, if that is stuck or broken, then the jack/switch must be replaced. (Big hassle)

The other is easier to troubleshoot, then connection from the speakers to the MB goes through the Right hinge cover. Take the hinge cover off, check for broken wires (I has one, ***** to splice too)

No sound from internal speakers on Dell Inspiron 700m ?? Any Ideas. I ahve atried all the basic stuff


sometimes the wires for the speakers break... just take the laptops panel above the keyboard out, remove keyboard, unplug the 4 white and black wires, and repair the break... Takes about 10 minutes to do! and you'll get your sound back.. Dell had a small design flaw there, but you'll get the speakers running easily! Same thing happened to my Inspiron 700M..... You can splice the wires and fix it yourself!

No sound from laptop


Sounds like everything has been done that can be, new sound card, drivers, and format. The only thing left is the motherboard. It's rare, but I have seen a few machines that when the sound card went out, especially if the card went out violently by overload, short etc... the traces (circuit paths) in the motherboard, or the seat for the card on the motherboard were damaged. Have them run the traces and check the seat on the motherboard to determine if this is the cause of the problem. If this is the case, unfortunately, motherboard replacement is your only option in order to get the sound to work.
