No Sound on Dell Laptop

I am at my wits end...lol

I have checked out as much as I know how to find out why I have no sound. All the drivers are there and updated and when I "test" ...I can see the green bars moving but there is no sound. It is not muted.

Which name and number of the model? Have you checked the volume keys on the Notebook/Laptop itself? It usually requires a combination of the keys [Fx] plus settings in the Operating System to get what you want. Same with a multi-media keyboard on a Desktop.

I did hit the "FN" key and the F12 key simultaneously but nothing

Actually, I misspoke about the Fn+F keys, was working with someone else and their Notebook while typing.

You may find the F12, and a couple others, work by themselves, don't need the Fn combination. When you think about it, having direct/immediate action for Volume is the reason for not needing the Fn. Most Notebook/Laptop keyboards have colored markings on the F keys which require holding down the Fn key, the key marking color will be the same as on the Fn key.
