Dell laptop speakers not working
 
 
 
   
 
 
 
 
 

Are your dell laptop speakers not working?  There are several factors involved here and it would be best to begin with the simplest one.  First, check to make sure your drivers are installed correctly.  If you have windows you can go to device manager, locate the sound icon and confirm that the driver is correctly installed.  The problem may be that the driver is corrupted and you will need to remove the driver and install the correct one.  You can find all drivers associated with your Dell laptop by going to dell.com and search for drivers by laptop model or service tag.  If you do not know how to get your service tag information, all you have to do is enter into setup when you first turn on your notebook.  In the BIOS you will be able to find the service tag number that corresponds to your laptop.  Once you have verified that your sound drivers are properly installed also check for volume.  Yes, as simple as this may sound you’d be surprised how many users forget they have their speakers on mute.  If you still do not get any sound and your dell laptop speakers are not working, you can boil the problem down to two minor and major things. 

The minor problem could be your speakers may need to be replaced.  This involves disassembly of the notebook so make sure you know what you are doing or have a professional do this for you.  There are several places Dell would install their laptop speakers; some are integrated into the sides of the palm rest, below or around the LCD screen, although most are directly in front of the mouse pad.  Whichever the case may be, if you are doing the install on your own you will want to access the speakers and find the part number.  You will see a bar-coded label with a series of numbers.  These numbers identify the speakers that fit into your notebook.  If you need help in identifying the part number or would like some assistance, please contact us.   Once you replace your speakers it should solve the problem with regards to sound. Now, there are rare instances where neither the drivers install nor speaker replacements solve the problem.  If this is the case, there could be damage to the speaker connector on the motherboard.  This would require board level repair or a complete motherboard replacement.  Please contact us if you have any questions, our staff is willing and able to assist you in any way possible.
