On your laptop are there..

Buttons running along the top? If you look very carefully you will see a button with a speaker on it (the button might be coloured blue, depending on your computer), you might have to select this button with another button, say, CTRL or ALT, this will depend on your laptop. Have you a manual/book disk Usually in a PDF format, you might need to read up on the instructions, but have a look on your laptop first for the "speaker" button.

Please post back if you have more problems or questions.

Did you check your driver?

I'm sure you did! You might want to check for sure by going to Start/My Computer right clicking, scroll to Manage, then Device Manager. Look for, Sound video and game controllers, then check if it is indeed loaded or reload it. Another option you might want to check is got to Control Panal, double click the Sound Icon and select the Sound Tab. If the first line at the top is hightlighted and it is blank, Delete that line then Apply. Go back to the same area and select Windows Default, sometimes if there is a blank line there, it could stop your sound from working. Not sure why, but I have had it happen to me from time to time. I to have a Dell and am running XP Professional Operating System. If this doesn't do the trick, I'm stuck as well as you. Good luck Victoria
