    Sounds like a problem with the sound card driver. Go to support.dell.com and type in your System Tag #. Search for drivers for it. It should show you what you have and download a new Audio Device Driver. You might even be able to go to www.windowsupdate.com and have it search for updates. On the left you'll see Drivers. Click that and see if anything shows up for a Audio Device.

    Does anything else make noise on your machine? Besides music? Like normal sounds? It might be something to do with a codec too. Are you trying to play a CD or audio files on your machine? If they are on your machine, what format are they? MP3? WMA?

    What program are you using to play music? Have you tried a different program?
