    I'm on my dad's Dell XPS laptop (runs on Vista) and can't get sound. It's apparently been this way for a long time, so I can't begin to guess what triggered the problem. Here's what I am looking at right now:

    The driver seems to be working fine based on what those pictures show. I get no error messages. Still though, nothing comes out the laptop speakers. There's headphone jacks on it, and I've tried them with no luck. I have a Sound Blaster X-Fi card, but it's not plugged in.

    Any help I can get on this would be appreciated!

    rightclick the background where it shows the sigmatel audio codec under sound and make sure show disabled and show disconnected items are checked. If you can see speakers enable those as default.

    It's checked, but nothing else shows up. It just has the Simtel listed there. Should there be something else listed there?

    check the sound video and game controllers under device manager, do you have 1 or 2 things listed there? Can u take a screen shot after you have expanded that tree?

    open up control panel, switch to classic view, open up the sigmatel audio console, and find the output control and switch the settings.
