Either your soundcard driver has gotten corrupted or your soundcard has died. You can find both the driver & info on what card you have at www.dell.com. Click on the support link and you can either input your Dell Service Tag & get exact system info, or you can look it up using the system model #. The driver will be available for download. Try reinstalling an updated driver first. If that still doesn't work check your device manager to see if a soundcard is listed. If it is not then more than likely your card has died and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

I am having a similar problem on my other computer. My son installed an old microphone we had from a windows98 computer and suddenly audio stuff sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I tried our windows troubleshooter thing and set our accelleration to basic which helped Window media, but Youtube and whatever the other media thing that defaults when my son clicks on "my music' songs, are still distorted.
We tried unplugging and plugging in the mic again - a green 'realtek' box showed up. I thought about uninstalling it to see, but wondered if this is something that affects other parts of my computer.

Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.
Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.
Ok now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom toolbar.
Click Open Volume Control.
A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.
If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)
Now close the slider box.
Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.
You should now have sound out of the speakers.
Double check that EVERYTHING is ok.
If there is still no sound check the control panle for any hardware issues and rectify those
