Just tell the volume icon in the system is shown or not if not then you sound drivers are not installed if it is showing then your onboard sound slot is having problem

No sound on computer


Exit all programs and then re-boot the computer first to see if the sound returns. If you hear the start up sound, things are probably working.

Here is a link to the Dell support page to investigate further:

It sounds like you need to install the driver for the system. You can find that here:

The sound card only loads at startup once in a great while for my dell latitude model PP01L

It sounds as if your audio card has died. Start over again, do the following:
1) Turn the computer off
2) Remove the audio card
3) Restart and uninstall the drivers
4) Turn the computer off
5) Install the audio card
6) Restart and let Windows install a driver or install the driver yourself by going to the cards web site and downloading.
7) Run Windows or MS Update to confirm that the most up to date driver is installed.
8) Restart the computer

If after doing the following and the card still does not load at start up very time, the card has died. Sometimes a malware program running at startup can cause these problems so make sure that your machine is clean before doing anything.

Windows doesn't recognize my sound card and I can't locate a driver, for it. I don't think the sound card is bad, as it worked before I reformatted my harddrive and added the software.

Install the latest Sound driver from the website.

Click on "Drivers & Downloads",
Enter your "Service Tag",
Locate the right driver, download it.. & Install it.

Hope it works....

Hello, I have a Dell Latitude D600 and the 2 USB on it don't work at all. Can you help, please.

A long way around it you might try finding a quick linux livecd and boot your system from that and see if the linux will recognize and use your usb ports. this test will let you know wether your usb ports are broken, or possibly your os installation has some glitch and is refusing to use your ports.

the other way around it is just saying that the usb doesn't work

another option is checking to see if in the bios usb is turned on or off which can happen sometimes.

and there is also the obvious uninstall the hardware and download the usb driver from the website and reinstall the hardware directing it to the driver you downloaded and see if that works..

there are a few options for you anyways :D

Good Luck
