HI there,

Here are 2 options.

1. Go to the page below, enter your Service Tag# from the bottom of your laptop, and hit enter or go or whatever is offered to proceed. At the Drivers page enter your current Operating System (XP, Vista, Windows 7) and then go to the Audio offering on the list below and download and save your sound driver to the Desktop. Double click on it and install it, rebooting if asked. If the software tells you that the driver is already installed, try step 2.

2. Go to Start> Accessories, System Tools> and click on System Restore. Restore your computer to the point offered which is most recent and previous to your sound failing.

Best Regards,

Marcus

Its very rare for a driver/device to just quit with no reason.
Did you have a virus? sometimes virus removal can damage files.
Download the latest drivers for your computer here http://support.euro.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_5100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

You may just find that another program has changed your default playback device, skype/voip/messenger programs can do this, right click on the speaker icon in your system tray, or go to sound properties in control panel. You can set your default playback device here

You can try reseating the keyboard connector. If that doesn’t work, the keyboard needs to be replaced. To reseat the keyboard connector, follow this link: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins5100/en/sm/keyboard.htm#1084976
Be sure to remove AC power and the Battery.
