Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1640n (RC663AA) PC Desktop ?

Since my a16 bios update on my dell inspiron 1525 theres no sound, tried all the diagnostics i can find and nothing seems to fix it.


Answers :

Let me know first are you using windows vista or xp! okey go to the dell site click download drivers and put yr service tag or model than download the latest version of sound driver and no driver is realeased for bios A16 if u have problem so make it Bios version A02 ..
It is likely that the BIOs update left the sound chip setting switched off. Simply go into the BIOs and find the section for Onbpard DEvices and re-enable it.
