But, hey, Dell, does this mean your customers have a choice of a functioning modem or functioning audio, not both? I now recall that after I finished the Vista “Upgrade Anytime” that it automatically re-installed the modem driver and this is when my audio stopped working. Please try again now or at a later time. Discussions cover Windows installation, driver problems, crashes, upgrading, service packs, and other Windows Vista-related questions. Make sure that “Laptop Stereo Speakers” is selected. The modem cannot play many of the files used for system sounds! Next attempt was to uninstall and delete the driver completely from my computer and then download the latest driver from Dell.

I tried everything such as reinstalling drivers etc but when I removed the modem my audio worked perfectly with the driver. First attempts at fixing were the basic uninstall of the driver to have Windows reinstall. The only change with my problem is that it wasn’t the modem that I had to uninstall.
Promote cracked software, del other illegal content Inepiron Flaming or offending other users Illegal activities: If you’re running XP you can download the driver here: System and Maintenance,then click: When I went to Device Manager, it showed that the latest drivers had been installed and that the audio was working fine.

After taking your advice, what was different for delll was that even though I selected the “remove files” when uninstalling the drivers for my modem and audio, it re-installed them anyway after I rebooted. In Device manager it was shown with a red X and that told Windows not to use it and not care about the drivers. The computer you’re having issues with is running XP.
I booted from the CD and audio tested perfectly fine in the diagnostics environment. Up to Windows XP this dll called “disable in current hardware profile”. Next attempt was running the Dell diagnostics CD.

No sound on Dell Inspiron m
All of these things may – in some cases they apparently do not – result in correction of the basic problem by forcing the correct selection of the default device. Your “safeguards” simply keep the computer from working! Unfortunately advice given for this situation 6640m often misdirected.
The issue and most likely solution has not changed much since or earlier, when I first encountered it as a novice.
However now when i try to play audio or video files there is no sound on video there is video but no sound At the audio sign there is the Speaker icon with a red and white X, similar to the mute sign however when you scroll over it, is says: So Device Manager says all is well and the rest of Windows says no audio rell is installed.
