First Right click on the sound Icon besides your clock on the bottom right hand side of your screen. Click on sounds. Then on the Playback Tab you should see: ""Internal Speaker/Headphones"".Click On Properties and then On the Tab that says levels. Then just Simply adjust the volume.

Thank You!!!!!!!!!!

After i reformat my computer,there is no sound and video.i want a free download audio and video driver for my computer.thank you.


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Hi,
Please go to the Dell website again. You should be looking for a LAN driver. Make sure that you are downloading drivers for Windows XP.
If that doesn't help visit broadcom website.

I understand you know what you are doing, but sometimes step by step tips might help you with something you could have overlooked, so here we go;

- You have selected the proper driver for the recordings (mike input) in : Volume Settings ~ Options ~ Properties ~ selcet the right mixer

- There is no other audio program installed that overruled the standard Windows setting to use another input driver or I/Face ?

- I am not 100% sure if the 5100 has a front entry Mike input, but if so, have you checked that input, instead of the standard backside input ?

- I know that some Dells have a small applet running that automatically detects if a device is connected to the mike input or speaker output. Play a bit with these connectors in/out, speaker/mike. Maybe the applet pops up and needs to be reconfigured. I'm sorry I cannot tell you which applet it is and how to start it from Windows, maybe someone else can help with that.

- Try the straight forward program Windows recorder in Start ~ Programs ~ Accessories ~ Entertainment ~ Sound Recorder ~ Edit ~ Audio Properties and selecxt the proper Audio Interface.

Good Luck !
