Hi, go to control panel, access the device manager, check to see if this device is installed, if not i.e has a yellow question mark; down load the approriate driver from the internet, most manufactuers have very good sites for downloading the latest drivers.

Go to Audio device through device manager and roll back the driver if it is istalled.
Right click on My computer>Hardware Tab>Device Manager>Sound, Video & Game controller> reight click on your installed sound device>Properties> Driver Tab> Rool Back driver.

If not solved the problem, then reinstall the sound driver and check. If not, then again contact me.

Cannot get sound from my DEL 510 laptop.

Hi jkepu,
I see that you are not getting any sound from your Dell 510 Laptop, If you lost the sound just a day before try doing System Restore first,
1. Click on start, All Programs or Programs then in the list Look for Accessories, System Tools, then click System Restore, this will help your restore you system to the day your sound was working.
2. If still the sound does not work go to Control Panel, look for device manager or you can click on start on the start search bar type in device manger it should show on the list then click on it to open Device manager, click the arrow on the left side of sound, video and game controllers it will show you a sub category of your audio drivers check to see if there are any of these signs

If there is an X on the Audio driver it means that it can be disabled.
If there is an Exclamation point it means that the Audio card on your machine is detected but may not work correctly, disabling and enabling the device may fix this or uninstalling and reinstalling the driver may work.
If there is a question mark means that the device is detected but it cannot determine what device it is most likely the driver is incorrect or corrupted and may need re-installation to fix the problem
Note: If you uninstall a driver and re-install again and you get an error that the device cannot be detected then most probably your audio card maybe damaged and is unrepairable, or you may get an error saying that the device driver is already installed on this machine something like that, check to make sure that the driver is uninstalled properly before installing a new driver for your Audio device.

Hope that I was clear enough with my solutions.

The sound on my laptop is scratchy, how can I fix it?

? you didn't specify which program you are using to play the audio;
- the stock media player that shipped with XP is WiMP9 not 10 and definitely not 11 which is Vista's media player,

if you were "auto updated" to 11 you could be having those lovely DRM features playing havoc with your system,

? try a different player, if they all sound like junk then the possibility of sound chip failure could be on the horizon

? try an external sound device, ie a PCMCIA Audio Card

No audio device indicated, no sound what soever

Here is the driver download page link for your Notebook

select your Operating System and download. But if you are not able to find Audio controller in your device manager than download this fix.

Install the fix first and then installed the Audio driver.

your sound will work now.

The Audio in my webcam central won't seem to work can anyone help me fix this problem when i first got my dell it seemed to work but now it doesn't and i want to record a video but the audio won't seem to...

I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.
