I have the same problem, except that I run a dell Inspiron 530 on XP PRo, and I stopped getting sounnd after installing a Windows update. Wich update? I coudn't tell under torture!!! I have "audio Intégré" (dell #3132758), and also a Realteck sound for complex audio effects that I dont need nor like. I made all the Windows recommended checks, up to checking the BIOS, and everywhere, the diagnostic was "This device is working properly" or something like that... Pleeeeeease HELP !!!
NB: I have no sound at all, not in Windows Media more than anywhere else, no system sounds... I do see a color bar moving up and down when I perform the windows recommended tests, but no sound. I can hear sound produced by connection being made when I unplug or plug the speakers, but that's all.
