    My Inspiron 1000 has lost its sound. The card appears to have died. Can this be repaired at home as it is three years old so not worth sending away.
    I dont need an expensive alternative just a new internal card.

    there isn't a soundcard in your notebook: due to the miniaturization constraints, it's all implemented on the mainboard. you can however buy an additional USB or PCMCIA soundcard.
