Possible u are having issue with the sound card, most of Dell inspiron system's got integrated sound card u might need to have replacement for the motherboard and it might resolve the issue rebooting byt itself.You might want to consider reinstalling the OS first before hardware replacement.

No sound ibm thinkpad t30 windows xp sp3


After checking the obvious (volume control mute not checked, volume slider not all the way down, and volume button on keyboard is not pressed to mute) -

Go into Control Panel, system, hardware tab, device manager, Sound and Video Game controllers, and delete the sound card. Reboot your system. Windows will find the sound card and re-install it.

Hope this helps.

Volume cannot be changed.Full Volume even if reduced or muted


You need to first find out what chipset your on-board card uses my friend. Check all the documentation to find out. You will need the exact set. Now search the net for an updated set of drivers that matches your operating system (XP SP1/2 etc). Now go to device manager and delete anything which has sound connections (MIDI Interfaces, MICs etc..). Now click the 'scan for changes' icon in device manager. Use the new drivers you downloaded.

No sound


Have you checked in Device Manager (Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, System, Hardware, Device Manager) for any conflicts - the dreaded yellow icon? Is this a recent problem? Have you installed anything new? Try deleting the device, rebooting and let your operating system find the device and install the drivers for it again. It just might be a little buggy and can be fixed fairly easily. Let me know.

Well, probably they forgot to reinstall audio driver.
Check first that your volume is not at minimum ar audio had been muted, check from 'audio mixer' or from 'control panel/sound, speech.../adjust audio volume'
If volume and mute are ok, download driver from this website and install it again.
You need to select your model, your OS (windows version), and then audio or sound driver download.
Once you download the audio driver (chose save) run the download.
If you do it properly it will work again.

No sound


1. Are your speakers turned on and plugged into the correct jack on your sound card?

2. Is your sound card recognized by your OS?
    In Windows, press the Windows Key+Pause/Break to bring up the System Properties page.
    CLICK on the Hardware tab, then Device Manager.
Is there a yellow exclamation point under the "Sound, video and game controllers" subheading? If so, you will need to either install/reinstall the sound card's driver or resolve a device conflict. Walk through the options on the device's Properties page.

3. If your speakers are on and your sound card is working properly (as reported by Device Manager), it could simply be that your sound is muted. Open the Control panel (Start>Control Panel)
Open the "Sounds and Multimedia" icon.
Verify the "Show volume control on the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, see below.
If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
Double-click the sound icon in the systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher. 

4. If Windows thinks your Sound card is working properly, your speakers are on and turned up and Windows' software volume control is turned up, go back to Device Manager and Highlight your Sound Card. Press the Delete key on your keyboard and confirm that you do indeed want to remove this device.

Reboot. If your Sound card is functional, Windows will redetect it and offer to install the drivers for it. You may need your original Windows CD to complete this step.

No sound


To troubleshoot a no sound issue first you must check your device manager to make sure the audio device is installed properly.

To goto the device manager in XP:
Right click my computer>Properties > Hardware Tab > Device manager.

Look for your audio device in the list under "Sound, Video and game controllers". If it has a exclamation mark or question mark beside it you will need to download the most recent drivers from the manufacturer's website.

Next step is to goto
start>programs>accessories>entertainment>volume control
make sure that Wave nor Master Volume is not muted, and both are turned up.

Third step is to check for onboard volume control, there might be volume controls on the system hardware itself.

If you say that external speakers work and not the built in speakers, then the headphone jack that you plug the speakers into may be defective. As it is always detecting something plugged into it and never turns the internal speakers on.

First, try pluging in an exteral mic to check the mic itself is not broke. Next Go to the device manager to check for driver problems (control panel, system, Hardware look for yellow ?'s) Check control panel, Sounds and Audio, audio, sound recording, volume. There are just too many ways to mess with the sound settings, and they often seem to just mute themselves!
Good luck

No system sound on my HP Pavilion dv1000


Have you checked device manager? You may try reinstalling the driver through device manager? Check the audio properties in sound. you May be try running a virus/spyware scan. When something suddenly goes out its either dead, corrupt driver or virus/spyware/highjacker etc. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
