Hi,

Look in device manager..

You might need to be logged on as an administrator in order to do this.

Open Device Manager, click Start, and then click Control Panel. Double-click System. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.

See if there's a warning triangle next to your sound driver. If that's the case, try rolling back/updating the driver. If that fails or you don't have one to roll back - look on the manufacturer's site for the correct, updated, drivers for your OS/sound card, or use one of these generic ones.

For XP...

Download, install the first two files (AC97), then re-start.

For Vista/Win 7...

Download, install the Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) , then re-start.

http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.htm…

To install the drivers, double click the downloaded file and follow any prompts.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resovled as per your satisfaction.

How to restore my dell 15.6 netbook


You don't necessarily have to wipe a computer to fix a virus (not usually anyway) try malwarebytes.org for the best malware scanner and/or avg for a great antivirus scanner. If you do need to wipe it then you will either need a Dell restore CD or Dell may have a hidden partition that you can get to, in order to do a restore. Check the Dell.com website for your make and model of netbook for more info.

No sound on my Dell Dimension 3000


i would try checking the plug for your speakers to see if it is loose.
If you move the plug is there any static that comes from the speakers?

If you have headphones maybe try plugging them in to see if you have sound through them.
If you do have sound then i would say it is your speakers that are bad.

If you get no sound or scratchy sound through the headphones, then i would suspect either a loose jack connection for your audio or a dying audio chip.

HP Mini 1033CL intermittent or no sound


Probably something was touching the speaker cone and you snapped the speaker back so it no longer touches.

My laptop (Inspirion B13) speakers work sporatically (sound is scratchy as it seems to be skiping) when I play DVSs. How do I fix this so I can have clear sound?


Hopefully it's a software problem and not hardware. I'd start by downloading and installing the latest drivers from Dell. Here's a link to the support site:

http://supportapj.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=in&l=en&s=gen

If that doesn't work then it's probably a hardware problem. Let me know if the first suggestion works, otherwise I'll post other tips.

Fuzzy laptop speakers


If you are getting a very scratchy sound out of your speakers they may be broken. You can get replacements for somewhat cheap online and replace them yourself or hire a local tech to do it. The job should take no more than 1 hour labor.
