Sound is gone

I am getting no sound at all out of my XPS M140 laptop. If I plug in external speakers, they work great. Remove the external speakers and no sound from the laptops speakers.

    Wouldn't you know that I didn't renew my warranty! I read on other sites that for speakers or wires to go bad is almost unheard of. Is that true?

  • bll2221 Mar 28, 2008

    Found the solution on another forum - common to Dell Inspiron -when unplugging the external speakers, the plug doesn't disengage properly so the computer thinks there are still external speakers plugged in - ergo the internal speakers are turned off. Solution: put headset or speaker plug in about halfway until you hear sound then jiggle it a bit as pulling it out until you hear sound from the computer. Ir worked and my speakers aren't broken!

    Hello bll2221, just looking at the design of notebooks in general, with speakers mounted on the right edge's even though they are internal. One bump too many could screw up the PC.

I don't have any sound


If you actually hear sound from your laptop when playing other audio files like MP3s or audio CDs, the first thing you check if the Volume Control of the media player that you are using to watch the soaps. If these are streaming videos, look at the speaker/volume level and make sure it is set to high. Make sure as well the volume icon usually located at the bottom portion of the video playback is not turned off or muted.

If no audio at all from your computer, plug in external speakers or try headphones to see if you will get sound. If you do, most likely, your internal speakers have to be replaced. If no audio even on external speakers or headphones, check your general volume controls, set them to high and make sure none are muted, and verify that you have the correct audio controller selected for playbak.

If that still fails, reinstall your audio driver and if no improvement, most likely, you need the audio controller/motherboard replaced.

The sound on my dell xps m140 does not work. All drivers are loaded but no sound


Had the exact same problem with exact same computer. Do the following:

1. check for virus, spyware, malware, etc.
2. uninstall driver and reinstall.

If you continue to have problems, check for sound using headphones or external speakers. If this works, order a set of speakers online and replace them. If this does not work then it's your sound card and for that you might need a pc repair tech. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

I have no sound on my dell xps m140 laptop


Check if the computer is on mute.

Then try to plug in a headphone check if it will
make any sound then if not update the audio driver.

If that's not working try to check if the right device is selected under the sound properties in control panel.

If that is still not working run the diagnostics in the computer, you can access that by f12 you will run into a first part of the test which may take aroun 10 mins then it will ask you to continue the remaining test press no then after that it will ask you to press any to boot to the partition then hit enter after that it
will ask you on what kind of diagnostics you want to run, select on custom test,. under custom test you will see all the items you have in your computer, select speakers or audio then it will perform a test
in your speakers if it make a sound then there is something wrong with your windows you might wanna back up your file, if it still does not make any sound you'll need to replace the speakers.

Hope this helps!

When my xps m140 laptop boot up after few minite lcd screen blak out. how to fic this?


There could either be a problem on your LCD screen, or Graphics card, to determine it. Try plugging an external monitor on your laptop and see if the display turns black also on the other monitor. If no, the problem is the LCD, but if yes (still black screen on the external monitor) it means the problem is on the graphics card.

No recording device found


Are you trying to record something? What's the issue? You obviously have drivers installed for the sound card if it works..
See sound recorder link here and here.
