Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron 1501 No Sound Device Detected?????

\015 Hi, I recently got a Dell Inspiron 1501. I went to go check out a video online and realized to my utter surprise that there was no sound so I proceeded to check the volume levels and it said no sound device detected. I'm running Windows Vista Home Basic on this laptop and I've already checked the device manager to look for yellow or red marks and there is nothing. I checked under sound and it said basic speakers and that no drivers had been installed for it yet. So I tried running update driving thinking the internet would pick it up and it said that it could not find a better driver. I'm very confused. I don't even know what type of driver to look for in order to manually install drivers or why it wouldn't even detect the sound card in the first place. Any suggestions please or is anyone else having the same problem?\015

To make sure that you will be able to download the correct driver of your laptop, go to support.dell.com,click driver and downloads, enter the service tag of your computer that is the 7 alpha numeric characters found on your laptop, or you can go to your bios press f2 when you see the dell logo and you will see there the system setup try to find your service tag, once you had enter it on support.dell.com, all of your appropriate drivers that came with your system will show up, but if for example your operating systems is windows xp then you change to vista check if there is a drop down box there to change the os, if not click on the search box on the support.dell.com and then type in the name of your audio card and then put vista ( example sigmatel driver vista).
