Hii

looking at the screenshot,

Audio has been user dissabled

All you need to do is left click on the sound icon with the X on it,
it will bring up another little window, user the slider, (wheel on mouse) to select volume level required, that will remove the x on the speaker icon

Note
Windows security is also showing a notification, check it

Open Device Manager. Click on Start then type device manager to find it.

Under 'Sound, video and games controllers' are there any yellow triangles? If so, right-click on any device with the warning triangle and select Update Driver.

Great news. Windows should find drivers for new hardware, but seems yours needed Windows Update resetting before it could work.

I see you are also registered on Ten Forums. Any more problems and we'll help you out over there.

I noticed in the specs he listed was a Dell Inspiron P07T.


extensive google searching of that led me to this specific Dell model (a Dell Inspiron 11z 1121).


his Dell laptop uses a Realtek audio driver
