I have a D400 here with the latest drivers installed from dell. Device looks fine in device manager, but no sound at all.

I am a very technical person so feel free to talk to me like one.

Hi :thumbsup:.

OK, you've already tried the uninstall/reinstall on reboot routine? Current drivers could be corrupt/damaged.

Did you try this:

1. Click Start and then Run.
2. Type dxdiag in the box and click Ok. Then, please click Yes.
3. This will open the DirectX Diagnostic Tool window.
4. Click Music tab and then click TestDirectMusic and then you should hear a music coming from the system. Click Ok to discontinue the music.
5. Click Sound tab and then click TestDirectSound and then click Yes and now you should hear a sound coming from the computer.

I was randomly browsing the site for random info, and I have had a dell B130 that didn't have sound for some unknown reason for a few months now. Tried this solution, and it worked. Made me feel really stupid :thumbsup:

Another good thing is to always check the bios settings, some times if the battery level gets low it can change stuff in the bios. Anyways... Check the bios settings maybe the sound card was turned off happened to me before. If it happens again and this fixed the issue replace the battery.
