Hello Rob141 and welcome to the forums :party:

Try this:

Uninstall Driver

  1. Open the start menu
  2. In the search box, type Device Manager and open it
  3. Expand the Sound, video and games controllers category by clicking on the little + sign
  4. Right click on everything in there and select Uninstall
  5. Reboot your computer after that finishes

Hi Tom . I was on the phone with Dell Technical support and I have gotten them to do all that remotely . I uninstalled all the drivers and anything that has to do with sound . They are still not working .. Im goin to try and install a couple of audio codecs and some other software that i have on my other hard drive to see if that works

Thanks Robert
