Well, just noticed, it is Dell Studio. I would recommend below mentioned things, I would suggest reinstalling of the driver. Before you do that, please make sure to know, what sound card is installed on your PC and download the relevant driver from Dell Support site. Go to dell.com/support and click on "Drivers and Downloads". Enter the "Service Tag" of your laptop and Click "Go". Download the audio drivers from "Audio Category"
Step 1: Right click on My Computer Icon and Go to properties
Step 2: If on Vista, from left hand side "Click on Device Manager"
Step 3: Go to "Sound, Video" and select the relevant list item and uninstall the driver by pressing a right click...
Step 4: Once the uninstall is complete, reinstall the downloaded driver from Dell.
this should eliminate the Drivers' issue and if it still doesn't work, it may be the hardware issue..Just let me know, how this goes..Please feel free to message me, if you need any assistance...
though itz unclear to me of wat os u r using.. assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2.. howevr, download microsoft kb888111
update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device
driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio
driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n
links if u search by the model name on a search engine like google.. download
them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,if itz
in .exe form, just run it; if done manually
it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a
.inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if
also download n install k-lite mega codec pack.... but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor..!!
It has never gone it is just that you never re installed the sound card drivers for your sound card so it does not know how to use it.
If you go to the manufacturers website you should be able to download the relevant driver for your sound card and re install that along with any relevant software which again you should be able to download - that or find the installation disc for your sound card that should of come with it.
go to http://support.dell.com and download the relevant drivers ( you will need flash and or shockwave installed to be able to select the drivers download section so if you dont see anything except a black box at the top then you need flash and shockwave installing.
Once you have those installed ( you will need to close your web browser closing to do that most likely ). restart your web browser afterwards and go to the above site.
Download the relevant audio driver, install and reboot and that should allow you to get sound.
If not post back ( the obvious things to check is the audio muted ) double click on the little speaker icon in the system tray near the system clock and check there.
Also if you right click on my computer --> properties --> hardware tab --> device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks near any hardware ( especially the sound card / audio section and if there are it means you need to install the drivers for those pieces of hardware )
The reason for the message will be the fact that windows doesnt recognise that there is a sound device available because the driver for your sound card or onboard sound is not built into XP and therefore you will have to find out what make of audio you have and install the relevant driver.
