Question about Dell Sound Blaster Card

1 Answer

Sound momentarily cuts out

I just bought a Dell M1730 and I really like it but when I listen to music the sound will occationally cut off with a "Pop" or just no sound for a split second. I can manually produce this by opening some of the Dell Set functions. I tried uninstalling Dell Set software. The problem still happens but only occasionally. Sometimes it is really bad and other times it rarely happens. Of course I reinstalled the Dell drivers but to no avail. It seems to me that some monitoring software may be interfering with the sound production but that is just a guess. Any help you could provide would be appreciated

You surely must be using Vista on your computer.
If yes then do the following steps,
1} Right click on the sound icon on the taskbar.
2} click on “Playback Devices”.
3} Select Speakers right click on it, and then click on Properties.
4} Click on the Enhancements tab.
5} Put a check on “Disable all enhancements” and Press OK.
This must fix the problem.

Happy troubleshooting

Sound on my dell latitude D610 is skipping making the sound choppy and warbled. But, music thru external speaker sounds fine. What up?


May be your headphone is not good, so let's check your headphone. If headphone is good, lets' install newest audio driver for your laptop to see whether the problem is fixed.

I was listening to music loud on my 5.1 speakers and they cut out. No sound, no lights to indicate it's even on. I did notice the fuse but took it out and it looks fine.


What has most likely happened, is that the speakers were over-powered and could not deal with the amount of sound. Or the other thing that would have happened, is that the fuse blew. If either of these is the case, the only solutiono is to purchase a new fuse for the speakers,(make sure you notice the voltage of the fuse - (find that on the original fuse itself.))
And after that, don't listenm to music that loudly again!

My sound cuts in and out


I'm not sure I understood correclty, but it sounds like you're listening to something on the web. If this is the case, than it mens that the connection is to slow and is interrupted. I would like to request you to listen to audio files on your computer, let's say any MP3 music file, and open it with the Windows Media Player installed on your computer. If it works fine, than there's nothing wrong with the computer.

Sound randomly cuts out


I have seen this issue before.
You could attempt to disable Audio Hardware Acceleration.

This can be found in the Sounds and Audio Devices under Performance (XP Advanced Button under Speaker settings > Performance.)

No sound on my dell laptop


I'm thinking when was the last time you reformatted? I know it's a hassel but it comes the time when you have no choice. Do you have your audio coming from the screen? It so then I would try speakers. They're cheap enough these days. If this works then I would be hopeful that your screen is still under warranty.If not then you may need to pull your laptop apart and replace the sound card.
