Default No sound on Computer, Halp!

The sound does not work on this Dell laptop I bought used from this wondeful site. Not a big deal but I would like to get it working if I could.

I tried downloading the sound drivers for it and that did not help.


Any other ideas?

Spell "help" right 1st.

Haha, actually I can't help you. Laptops are not my thing. Did you try external speakers or go into the system to check sound settings??

I went into the control panel and it says no audio device installed.

So what do I need to install and where can I get it?


I wonder if the audio card is damaged or missing?

The sound drivers should be plug and play. I would look online and see how to get into the BIOS and make sure that the sound card is turned ON there. If the BIOS has sound turned off, no matter what you do it will only make a loud thud when it hits the floor.

If you turn the sound on, then everyone will hear your porn

Ya make sure the sound is on in the BIOS,
Also try plugging speakers or headphones into the laptop to see if they play sounds/music

Why would you put 7 on such a pile?
Dell should still have the drivers.
