Ok, so I have a Dell Latitude D610 and running Windows Xp Professional. Every time I turn on my laptop I have to turn up the wave volume. It stays up the entire time my comp is on but when I turn it off and then back on it goes back down. Any suggestions?

go to start > control panel > sounds, speech and audio devices > sound and audio devices in the device volume section. Make sure the 'Mute' option is NOT checked.

I don't think so. I got this laptop from an older lady. She couldn't get it to boot up and she told me if I could get it to work, I could have it. I am still coming across bugs here and there. Is there a way I could find out about the sound card?

if its a laptop, then it doesnt have aftermarket sound. Im finding that there are some antivirus programs that cause issues with wave sound, such as Avira. what AV does the laptop have, if any?
