Dell :: No Sound Means NO SOUND

Jun 8, 2009

I want to buy an inspiron 13 but the sound option got me confused. It is set on "no sound" ... >__>

Dell really sells it without sound? Do I have to pick one of the other options if I want to be able to listen to music?

Dell :: Inspiron 15205 Sound From Intergrated Sound Chip

Oct 1, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with 8600GT. I wanted to buy a 5.1 speaker set but it would be of no use as 1520 does not have 3 audio jacks while the 1525 and XPS 1530 has 5.1 output.

I was just wondering, if it was possible to somehow get an extra audio jack outside the laptop by checking if a header pin for a third audio jack exists on the motherboard since the audio chip is HD audio and motherboard design would be similar to 1525 and XPS 1530

I lot of people have openend up their systems and taken a look at the audio circuitry to fix the static noise coming from the headphone jacks. Did anyone notice if a third audio jack could be soldered to the motherboard to get 5.1 audio.

HP 650 Audio :: Notebook Has No Sound - Spotify Says Something About Sound Card Not Working?

Jul 16, 2014

Okay, well the day before yesterday I was trying to watch Youtube but when I clicked on a video it had no sound. I thought it was Youtube, so I exited the site and thought I'd wait a little bit. So then I went to Spotify to listen to some music. I kept clicking and clicking and nothing was happening. Then I noticed a blue notice at the top that said something about my soundcard not working properly.

I then checked everything on my computer to see if it had sound. Windows Media, videos on Facebook...nope, nothing was working. At first I thought it was my daughter. I let her watch Youtube when she lays down for a nap. I came in the other day and she was hitting all kinds of buttons on my computer. I stopped her though and everything seemed fine. I also remember my computer updating that day. Could it be that something went wrong with the update? I don't know if that's possible or not.
And also, what is a soundcard. Do I have to buy it or do I download it???
I went to Yahoo answers and someone said to uninstall the drivers. I did that and then reinstalled them and it worked. The rest of that day I had sound on everything except for Facebook. Yesterday night it happened again and the sound has not returned since but my computer sounds are still working. When I logged on the computer made the log in sound it usually makes. I also tried to listen to a video with headphones and it still did not work.  Again, I uninstalled the drivers and then re installed them and got nothing.

Apple :: LED Bulb Life - Screen No Longer Even Turns On Which Means The Backlight Is Dead

Jan 9, 2009

In the past, I used to have an hp pavalion laptop. I usually kept the screen at a little past half brightness and in 3 years, the screen no longer even turns on which means the backlight is dead. The same thing is true for my mother's 17 inch lcd monitor. Now I realize that this may just be bad luck, but I don't want to risk anything with my new macbook.

What's a "safe" level to leave the brightness at? And is the LED long lasting? Is it expensive to replace? I hate dim screens but I don't want this screen to die that fast, I want to make this last AT LEAST 8 years.

Dell :: Best For Sound?

Jun 11, 2009

I had been thinking of getting a Latitude E5500, I've had Dell's for years at work and always liked the added robustness and lack of bloatware on Latitudes.

Lately though I have gotten into converting my vinyl to digital and plan to do a lot more sound oriented things.

Do any Dells have an upgraded sound card, or is it all software driven?

Any other thoughts given my "new" interest in music?

Dell :: M1730 Sound

Nov 7, 2009

I'm not sure what the problem is with my M1730, however I'm having problems using Sigmatel Drivers, and I wanna use them because I wanna take full advantage of having Dual Audio.

But currently I'm having problems trying to get my dual audio jacks to work. One would obviously say go to the dell website and download the drivers and install and there shouldn't be a problem.

Well..... it's not that simple because for some reason there is only one audio drivers found there, and that one audio driver doesn't seem to properly install on my system for whatever reason.

I'm running 64-bit Windows Vista and I have no clue as to what my issue is to get this to work.

Dell :: 5.1 Surround Sound

Mar 22, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with the sound card that comes with the package. I also have the soundblaster audigy software but that is irrelevant as it pretty much does nothing.

I have a Yamaha TSS-15 surround sound system. It worked beautifully with my laptop before I reformatted. After reformatting, despite installing the latest Sigmatel High Definition Audio CODEC as well as ensuring the actual physical surround sound system was all in working order I am unable to get 5.1 from my laptop. When I click "test" and I click on the middle, rear speakers or subwoofer no sound is emitted however when I click on the left or right speakers they work fine. I have a standard audio cable plugged into my laptop which is then plugged into my surround sound system.

Dell :: 64 Bit Upgrade And Sound

Mar 16, 2009

I received my studio 17 (p8400, 4 GB, ati 3650) 2 weeks ago and I love it. However theres a few things I wan't to change such as 32bit to 64bit. I thought it would be very simple but i realised there is a lot more to it (or not).

Forgive me if some questions have been answered before and if they seem obvious.

1.) I have read the 32 bit vista is useable on the 64 bit of the same type of vista correct? This would mean I could just use my 64 bit vista DVD to install and use my current Dell CD Vista key with it?

Or would I be best off asking a copy from dell as it may come with all the dell apps with it not that I would need them.

2.) Would installing using my own disk void warranty rather than using dells requested DVD?

3.) Also if I upgrade to 64 bit would this effect the recovery partition. Eg. Would I just be able to format the C: partition, Install 64bit vista on that and leave the D: Recovery partiton alone. Th reason I ask is I read removing this may lead to void of warranty which I wouldnt as im only 2 weeks into.

Sound Issue

I find that the sound can be distorted on just medium level. I have tried a lot of solutions such as installing new drivers, getting rid of IDT drivers and using the default windows ones. I have a wifi 5100 intel card so the other solution provided does not apply to me. However this is not a big issue to me as I can use headphones but would be nice to have them working normally. I also think it could be just a faulty speaker as one side seems more distorted.

Dell :: S-XPS 16 Bluetooth / Sound Not Working

Jan 18, 2010

I love my new laptop but it has a few issues that i need some help fixing:

1) Bluetooth not working (Yes there IS a module in my computer): I went into my bios and checked to make sure the option for bluetooth was checked. When my computer boots, the bluetooth LED comes on but as soon as it exits the BIOS and boots Windows 7 the LED turns off. I've looked for new drivers, and looked around other forums for a solution for this but have found no direct answer.
EDIT: Solved. Download the driver here

2) Sound (I have The High Def Audio with SRS premium sound. IDT drivers)- When playing sound on my computer with the A01 bios version, and having the IDT audio drivers, I noticed a lot of weird things going on with the sound. It like bottomed out and had a lot of vibration or something. I dont know how to describe it but it was VERY distorted. Since then i've upgraded my BIOS to A05 and uninstalled my IDT audio drivers and let windows install its own high definition audio drivers. It seem a lot better but there is still some distortion there were it seems like the computer is just vibrating too much or something.. Is there a fix for this? I read in another thread that he had to take out the keyboard and adjust some of the screws that were messing with the speakers.

*Also when I plug in my headphones, i notice some scratching and weird sounds when im not playing any music. Its like I can hear the hardrive. However, the problem is inconsistent. Is there a way to fix this?

*Also are there some recommended settings for the SRS premium sound (if i solve this and get the sound working right)?

EDIT: Visit this thread to upgrade your BIOS to A05. It fixed this problem to me, and besides, its the latest BIOS version. It's currently not on the dell site (typical dell)
Also Uninstall the IDT SRS Premium audio software an go to the Dell site and download just the IDT Driver. It fixed the clarity problem i was having too.

3) Wireless card- This must have been a A01 BIOS issue but since I upgraded to A05, it has been fixed. Basically when running uTorrent, the card would completely crash. It would make Firefox crash, and any other internet required app

Also it would be EXTREMELY helpful if someone would create a thread with all of the latest S-XPS 16 drivers (1640 and 1645). That way much time spent searching and troubleshooting can be avoided if we can just have a thread with all the drivers displayed in one location. Dell is horrendous when it comes to the latest drivers

Oh and here is my system build:
Dell Studio XPS 1645
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel Core i7 720QM
6GB DDR3 at 1333MHz
RGBLED screen
AT 4670 - 1GB
High Definition Audio with SRS Preium Sound
Intell 5300 WLAN 3x3
DEll Wireless 370 bluetooth Module (2.1+EDR)

Dell :: E6400 DVD Burner Sound

May 7, 2009

I recently purchased an e6400 off of the business outlet, and everything is in working condition. However, upon insertion of the cd disk tray, there is a sound which I have never prior heard coming from a cd drive

( for a recording. IE7 will open it, IE8 will not).

I went ahead and contacted CS, and they overnighted a replacement, which I put in, but it still has the same sound, though to a lesser degree as far as I can tell.
1. Is this normal, or is this a problem with the dvd drive/notebook as a whole .....

Dell :: End For Sound On This Inspiron 6000

Jan 27, 2009

I have been trying everything to get the sound to work on this Dell Inspiron 6000 of my son's (he's in Iraq) and despite my best efforts and even the efforts of the IT guy here at a networks company in the silicon valley.

We could not get any sound no matter what and it says there are no sound devices installed even though it lists the SigmaTel C-Major audio driver in Device Manager.

The IT guy says he has never seen something like this so I am wondering if a format and fresh install of Windows XP is in order? It seems my only option.

Dell :: Studio 1537 Sound

Apr 9, 2009

Got a new Studio 1537 and read a lot about the sound being improved by removing the IDT drivers.

The sound on mine isn't great but I've never had a laptop before so have nothing to judge it by.

Are the new 1537's still improved by removingthe IDT drivers or have Dell already improved it. I don't want to uninstall drivers if its not going to make any difference.
