With that in mind the first thing I would do is to run the audio tests in Dell Diagnostics. Indulge me for a moment while I try to put this in perspective. At this point – after you have opened Dell Diagnostic custom – if you can’t find the option to select the audio tests that is a symptom of a failed audio chip. Next install the Intel Mobile Chipset software expand the Chipset category. But I cant seem to adjust audio and it doesnt play back audio because its muted and i cant unmute. I can’t seem to find the right driver now or its corrupted, not sure.
