He did verify that it had integrated sound card and was working fine. Just can't get sound. My speakers work too as I have checked them on another computer and we checked all the settings.

Follow these instructions:
Start menu > Control Panel (or Settings > Control Panel) > Add/Remove Programs
(Are there any programs in here that you know are for your audio device? If so, remove them. If not, just ignore this step.)
Right-Click on "My Computer" > Manage > Device Manager > Sound, Video and Game Controllers
(Right-Click on your audio device, select Uninstall, you will need to confirm you want to remove the device from your system.)
Reboot your computer (Start menu > Turn Off Computer > Restart)
Once your system has finished rebooting and you are logged in again, you should be presented with the "Found New Hardware" wizard. Just ignore this for now, (you may have to move it out of the way) and open the downloaded file. Go through with it and it should install the drivers and software as necessary for your system. You may need to reboot once more to finish everything off.
Any problems, give us another post detailing the problem you get. If any of these steps don't work for you, post back and let us know this also. And finally, if you have already done all this with the Dell Service Rep, let me know this too.

It's also possible that the integrated sound has finally kicked the bucket. You can pickup a cheap soundcard that would do the trick. Here's an example from Newegg that is $11.99 I'm not sure how good the brand is (at that price, you can't complain!) As long as it works, I suppose... You wouldn't want to go spending too much more on a component for that computer as it's 5 years old, as you have mentioned.
I'm not really sure at how to go about it further than this unless you wanted to try the options I mentioned. If you wanted to wait a little more, I'm sure someone else might be able to comment. You could try sending a Personal Message to a member of staff that helps in the hardware forum here asking if they wouldn't mind looking at this thread and helping out, just copy the address bar link into the message for them. The staff member may suggest something new or suggest to try one of my tips.
