  • Hi,

    From your description I understand that the sound works during boot up process but after entering into system, no sound and no control over the volume. If I misunderstand, check if the onboard sound is enabled in BIOS.

    At this point, I suggest downloading audo device drivers from Dell download center and then go to device manager and remove all sound devices listed . then rebot computer and direct it to the newley downloaded drivers .
