No sound from speekers

I'm getting frustrated with troubleshooting this problem, Please help. There is no sound from my Dell E510 and I've checked just about everything. I recently had to re-install Windows XP from the dell recovery disk and sense then, silence.When I go to the control panel-sound devices, the 1st panel under sound devices say's there are no sound devices. I don't have a separate sound card, just the integrated sound from the MB. I've checked the volume control and there is nothing muted. It's as if the hardware fell of the MB. I hope you can give me some advise?
Thank-you, Steve

Tip

Basic Troubleshooting


This is a great reference tip that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

As a computer geek I come across problems all the time. I like to see how things work and that usually means messing up sometimes. Messing up isn't bad, in fact it's great! When you mess up, you usually learn from it. When you learn from your mistakes you can learn how to fix and even avoid them. Usually when you avoid your mistakes, it saves time.

So, this is where the tip starts. I’ll teach you some really quick steps that will stick to you and help you for as long as you live.

Let’s say you notice that you don’t have a sound icon in your tray, but yesterday you did. You might think, it should be on startup because it usually automatically there. What should you do? If your thinking “check Google!” you’re right, but what would you Google? What keywords would you pick to find your problem? Why would you even care to go to Google.com to check why you’re having this problem on your computer? Google is a search engine; it’s a good one too. I don’t know a single computer smart person that doesn’t mainly rely on Google. I would try and use keywords like “Missing Sound Control Icon from Tray” Browser through the results and you’ll find some good ideas which you can make a solution out of.

The problem I’m giving you is a real scenario. This problem is something I’ve come across, it’s nothing big but it really bugged me. Once I finally figured it out, there weren’t words for how happy I was. It’s not the whole point of fixing a dumb issue, but it’s the fact that I didn’t ask for anyone’s help. I, instead, used what was in front of me, my resources, and the internet. The internet is a huge library that is full of answers. I’m sure you won’t care but I should tell you how I fixed it.

Here’s my step-by-step on how I fixed it:

1. Right-click My Computer and then click Manage.

2. Click Services and Applications.

3. Double-click Services.

4. In the Services list, right-click SSDP Discovery Service, and then click Properties.

5. On the General tab, in the Startup type drop-down list, click Disabled.

6. Click OK.

If you’re wondering, Brandon, how could you have remembered those steps? I didn’t, I’ve learned to keep logs of my major errors that I have. I put all of my, what I call “Error Logs”, on my D Drive which is a 1.5 Terabyte SATA Drive. Keeping logs allows me to be semi-independent and helps me learn more about that problem that I went through.

If you were wondering “How do I keep these logs?” I simply make a template out of a simple text file (.txt) and name that text file “0.txt”. I later added an index to that file so that I can take that template, fill it out, and create a text file named “1.txt” I can take the same template and create a new text file for a new problem and then add that file to the index in the “0.txt” file. I hope that wasn’t too confusing.

Here’s my template:

(Notice Date - Month Day, Year)

(Fix Date - Month Day, Year)



Title of Issue



Cause(s)



Excluded Error(s) or Fixe(s)



Solution(s)



Cited Website



I hope this tip was helpful. If I helped you out in anyway, please help me and rate.



Thanks,

The right solution for puter probs is nearly always 1. Restart, or 2. Turn off and turn back on ("Cold Start"), or 3. Uninstall and reinstall whatever is giving problems. But that's generic, and in this specific case you have a much better option, which is to do a "System Restore." Stop, do not panic! The name is much worse than what actually happens. Things are not wiped out, and no work that you've saved is distroyed. System Restore is not a violent operation. What actually happens is that recent changes are undone. Which is what you want in this case because some program running, or something, has courrupted your sound system in some way. We don't care exactly what happened because Windows will restore things to an earlier point, and so fix the prob. Or so we hope. In any case things won't be worse. Windows XP makes a System Restore point every day, automatically. You don't know it's happening, but it is. And three (or so) of these are kept in reserve for just this sort of situation. The trick is to get to System Restore, which is, as will all things puter, all a matter of knowing where to click. In this case click Start (the Start button in the lower left-hand corner of your monitor screen), and then click Help and Support. One of the options offered, will be "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore." (or similar) Click this, of course. A dialog (a new window) appears, and what you want to do is "Restore my computer to an earlier time." (or similar) So select that and click Next. And follow the instructions after that. Probably you want the earliest restore point available. My final thought is to return to the subject of how things broke in the first place. Do you run an anitvirus? You must. And do you update it? Sometimes the manufactures issue updates every day, and these must be installed. An antivirus not updated is worthless. Hope all this might be of some help. - Al A. -
