Joey, Be sure to use the Dell website to search for your problem. "B130 no audio device found?" or whatever the message is. Had exactly the same problem and it was do to a switch turned off, I think in the Computer Administration folder. I cannot rember what itwas, but I believe you can find the answer. There are 266 Search Results for B130 no sound device search on the Dell community site.

First of all check is the correct driver is installed,if yes then try with a sound card, if still the problem persists than your motherboard is having problem, send it for repair

I have a problem with my Inspiron 1150. Just a couple of weeks ago the sound all of sudden stopped working. I have tried to reinstall the SigmaTel driver but it won't let me. An error message comes up...


Your laptop has a hardware problem. The unrecognized sound card and USB ports are a dead giveaway. You probably have a loose wire, or worse, a motherboard that is going bad. If your laptop is under warranty, call Dell and get the laptop to them right away. If not, you'll have to have an experienced repair person look at it and you'll have to decide if it's worth fixing. I'm such a person, and I'm a Dell partner. I'm in Rockville, MD and if you're nearby, please call me or send me a message through my website.

Computer sound not working


ah, try the FN key and holding i down then quickly pressing the end key without releasing fn, then release them.
i have an inspiron laptop computer too just an older version so this might not work, if it doesnt go to control panel, sounds,audio and etc. then go to "Adjust System volume" or one of the other ones under "Sound" which are already up when you click onto that
