Common Sound Problems in Dell® Computers
Dell® is a multinational information technology corporation that develops, sells and supports computers. Dell® produces a range of desktops and laptops. One major problem of Dell® computers is regarding its sound. The sound card features are different for different laptops. These features will determine which all hardware and software can be used in your laptop. If your laptop card doesn’t support any hardware that you have newly installed, audio problem might occur. So you need to know its limitations and what it can support. If you mute the audio by mistake, sound won’t be produced. Another thing that affects your laptop sound is the incompatibility of sound card with the mother board. The improper installation of sound card, drivers and BIOS issues could also result in sound problem. The speaker errors also result in the sound problem. The use of outdated sound drivers causes the sound problem. So always use the latest drivers or enable the automatic driver update option.
Some tips to resolve the common sound issues in Dell® computers are given below:
The audio driver problem might cause your system to lose sound. If your system’s sound is lost, check whether the sound card and speakers are connected properly. If those things are connected correct, then check the audio drivers. If your audio driver has any problem, reinstall the audio driver or update the driver to its latest version.
The incompatibility between the sound card and other hardware might cause sound problems. Check whether the sound card conflicts with other external cards. The PCI cards and the PCI sound cards might have IRQ conflicts. This is because they all are in PCI slots. It is better to modulate the resources they are using.
If your speaker does not produce sound, check your head phone jack. If the headphone jack works, it is sure that your speaker has some problem. If so, then you can use external speakers. Try plugging and unplugging head phone from the jack several times. Sometimes this might help you to start playing sound again.
