When you look in Device Manager what do you see? In reply to kodirvd’s post on July 22, Searched for updated drivers etc. There may have been a conflict with the ATI card. I know the on board sound can work becasue thats where I was plugged into while I had sound. I’ve done that several times. Yellow or Red beside the sound card?

The device manager lists the sound as High Definition Audio Device – the properites are: I’m going to make a couple of assumptions and say that you only show 4 HDMIs in the sound list of device manager.

Their solution to me was to send this Delll card so that I could just use the sound output from it. The only other thing I could think of but didn’t test it was to make sure you don’t have an IRQ conflict between the two. How satisfied are you with this reply?

This is the way I purchased this machine from Dell. That should be your correct driver, and will end the conflict with your sound driver.


XPS Onboard Sound – Microsoft Community

Around 2 hours later the sound stopped working. Do you see any?

I made Speakers the default but it disappeared on it own a couple hours later and now i have no sound again. This particular xps has an nVidia chipset, and the driver that windows update tries to install if you allow it is the wrong video driver, which for me at least caused a driver conflict with the elusive fifth HDMI sound driver your speakers.

Let’s make sure that the speaker icon isn’t disabled. Did this solve your problem? I guess i could install it again and pay more attention to the Device Manager device listiings. I am plugged into the green plugin but there is no sound. Sorry this didn’t help.

After you install the driver, reboot and test your sound. When you look in Device Manager what do you see? I’m not sure if I launched some application or not but suddendly the sound started to work yesterday and then went away after a couple of hours.

I have Vista Soun Premium.

The Speakers device was selected as the Default. Also the sound is not muted.

Zps can follow the question or vote as helpful, but you cannot reply to this thread. How does one configure the Playback to contain Speakers? Hey Kodirvd, I was fixing a client’s computer and was scratching my head over the same issue you’re having. Also going to assume that you’ve allowed windows update to update the drivers of your computer.

This site in other languages x. So I removed the card and crd had temporary sound while plugged into my onboard green plug, while Speakers was listed as the Sound device. Do you see the speaker option? I’ve done that several times.

I have never been successful at getting sound out of that card. Please let us know if this did or didn’t correct your issue. Tell us dlel your experience with our site.
