Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Music doesn't play

\015 Just recieved my dell and tried to go to a few websites but was unable to get any sound or music. I tried all the things the manual told me to do, but it still doesn't work. Any suggestions.\015

Answers :

Open the device manager and check to see if the audio drivers are there. Any device that needs drivers will have a yellow question mark next to them. If they aren't there, you will need to go to Dell's support site and download them. If they are, then unistall the audio/sound drivers and reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers. With some sound drivers, but not all, they do not automatically adjust the sound settings, leaving the volume very low or muted, therefore you may need to manually adjust the sound settings.
