You can try one thing:
1. Goto www.dell.com make a search for "driver downloads" then put your service tag no. This will list all the required drivers for your laptop. Just download driver for audio and install it.
It will fix your problem if you had tried bad drivers before.

2. If you can found your sound card manufacturer name, then go to their site and get appropriate driver for your sound card and try to install it.

Thanks

No sound in my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop


If the issue is no sound after reinstallation of Windows, then your issue is most likely a driver issue. Many items in the system will function with native windows drivers but the audio on a I6400 is not one of them. Installation of drivers in the correct order is critical to Dell portables functioning correctly. Correct driver order is:

Notebook System Software.
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

All other applications and drivers (MS Office, Printer driver etc)

This system is also equipped with Media Direct capability. For Media Direct to function, the system's HDD must be prepared using the Media Direct installation CD, then WIndows installed, then the Media Direct application. If you have no plans to use media direct, this can be skipped (Most people do)

Cd drive skipping


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?

/michael

why pay for software?
