Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

My speakers do not work anymore in my inspiron 2200

\015 I have performed after going through all the diagnostic tests in my computer I found that I might need new hardware as the analog sound playback test FAILED and the record/ playback test failed too. Can I solve this problem by purchasing an external sound card or do I have to replace the motherboard?\015

Answers :

If you press Fn while powering the system on it should enter diagnostic mode. It will perform some memory tests and then present a video test screen at which point it plays sound through the speakers. If you here this sound, then your hardware is functioning and it is a software problem. There are USB sound cards available - note: you would need external speakers as well.
