Dell Inspiron 1501 Sound Problem

I'm having a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop. The sound just stopped working, I can have it on full blast and everything and no sound, not even like fuzz comes out of the speakers. If I plug in headphones like to an ipod into it I can hear music but only if I push the headphones in and hold it at a certain angle. I'm really upset because I love to listen to music and watch movies on my laptop and now I can't. If it makes it easier for you my laptop was once dropped on its side with an audio thing in the slot so it might be that on the inside something got knocked around or something, but i don't know, hope someone can help me!

I have dell inspiron 1501 pc notebook. Somehow,

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support 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 the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label 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 the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Plug in Microphone not working in Dell Inspiron Laptop

Sounds like the sound card on your laptop may be bad. Your laptop may have an integrated sound card on the motherboad or a seperate sound card. As part of the motherboard you have to get a new motherboard. First check your drivers and go through the trouble shooting section.
