you will need to select your model, or put in your service tag (on the bottom of your notebook) and then look for the driver under audio in the list. from memory the first audio file should be the one you are after. click on download, on the right hand side.
once downloaded, run and install software, then restart the computer.
Dell Laptop with bios or hard drive password set ? Unlock your dell laptop using the link below if it display a message that says "this computer system is protected by a password authentication system, you cannot access the data on this computer without the primary or administrator password, when you turn on the computer. This message is what you get if the BIOS is protected by a password. or you get system disabled
Try another headphones if possible..you have already checked the speaker so half of thework you hve already done .. try to get a diffrent headphones from friends if they work .. then its your headphone gone bad & you would need to replace it.
If you still get this issue .. please write to me .. we will work together on this issue..
I would suggest taking this laptop to an authorized service center. Laptops are just tuff to get open and change hardware. Its more worth your time to have a service center change your hardware. Desktops I fix myself.
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not, Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not, Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
sorry for the delay in responding:
for Vista system ... use the following picks:
Start ....Control Panel,...... Hardware and Sound, .... Manage audio devices....Recording......Line in ...try the advanced features to control the computers auto adjustment etc.
Hope this helps
This sounds like the system has glitched. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This should clear the glitch, get it back up and running, and cure the overheating problem. Try this and get back to me if there are any issues.
