Open the device manager and check to see if the audio drivers are there. Any device that needs drivers will have a yellow question mark next to them. If they aren't there, you will need to go to Dell's support site and download them. If they are, then unistall the audio/sound drivers and reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers. With some sound drivers, but not all, they do not automatically adjust the sound settings, leaving the volume very low or muted, therefore you may need to manually adjust the sound settings.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 laptop computer. I recently noticed that when I inserted a music CD into the drive, that it would not play or even recognize it in the My Computer window. I can still play DVDs...


The Cd player my be dirty, you can get disks you put in there to clean them. Also sometimes the players are just picky and don't like certain CD's..... I'll build brand new PC's that only read some CD right from the start.

Make sure your disks are clean to, with no fingerprints.

Dell Latitude D800 PC Notebook" Problem No sound


Which sounds? Do system sounds work? Are you unable to hear music from CDs?
There could be one of several things wrong. In the device manager, you will need to check to see if you have a sound card that is functioning. In Accessories>entertainment, you need to check the sound settings to be sure your speakers are not muted.
Most often it's a sound driver issue. When you go into sounds from the control panel and try to play system sounds, the little arrow that lets you test the sound is grayed out--meaning you have no sound drivers.
If it seems to be playing, then you have either turned the volume down or off or you have a problem with the hardware.

The audio is plaing but there are no sounds. I did


hi Steve

I have read your problem and I think that your sound driver is malfunctioning.

Download the sound driver from the Dell's website for your system model.

Reinstall the sound driver and restart the system. This will get you your sound back.

Thank you

To connect Asus Notebook to Yamaha RV-502 Av Reciever to play music


Hi, Most notebooks have a 1/8 female plugin from your audio card. (headphone Jack)
Now, you need a cord with a 1/8 male plugin on one end and two RCA Jacks on the other.
All you need to do is connect the cord to (AMP) RCA in and the 1/8 Jack to you notebook.

This will work fine. Good luck
