hi! i'm using a dell inspiron|1200 laptop. after my nephew accidentally drop it on the carpet (slightly), the sounds cannot be heard anymore. i tried to troubleshoot it but still nothing. i already re-formatted the laptop hoping that hardware is not the problem but it still not working.. can anybody help me pls? maybe the sound card or any chip was loosen after the fall?? i want a technician to look at it but i dont have money for that. i want to look at it myself but i'm scared i might do a serious damage or i'll get electrecuted.. pls help. thanks

by the way, i already checked the "device manager" thing and it seems all of the "devices are working properly."

Sadly, a drop is a drop no matter how "lightly" it was. You do not have a sound card. You have a soldered in chip, which unfortunately, needs to be looked at by a tech. I would recommend a small mom 'n pop repair shop. Nothing like Geek Squad

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
