Then the problem is probably a faulty sound chip on the motherboard.
What make and model is your system?
Did you download the original drivers for your system? The ones that would be installed from Dell from the factory.
On Dell's sit you can put in your Service Tag number and it will give you all the original drivers for your system.

At this point the option is to purchase a new sound card and install it.
Since the bios has now place to enable or disable the onboard sound then it is most likely a bad audio chip on the motherboard.
